18 Years Old, 5'10 137lb, Delayed Puberty/no Growth

Hi there!!! I am super excited to undergo surgery in July. I have always felt as if my boobs held me back.... I have a medical issue where I was not able to advance past a stage 2/3 on the puberty scale (up to 5) and have damaged breast tissue that truly never made much progress. Excited to keep updating and documenting this journey through RealSelf! Today I got my labs done, necessary and...

BBL Roud 2?!?! Dr Sato Houston....possibly

She is amazing!! I didn't even really have to tell her my trouble spots she pointed them out as soon as she saw my body. Her communication is untouched by any other doctor I have ever dealt with. I love my body an I'm not even completely healed yet an still swollen. Dr Sato is a hidden gem an I am so glad I found her on real self an so thankful that her an her staff took such great care of me. I would recommend her to any an everyone looking to have this procedure. She really cares about her patients an she makes you feel so at ease as soon as you meet her. Beautiful doctor inside an out!! Worth every damn penny!!

29 Yo, No Kids, Buying the Butt the Gym Isn't Giving Me!!! - Houston, TX

Dr. Sato is AMAZING, so skilled, knowledgeable and personable. She took her time with me during our consultation, answering every question I had and more. I came to her with realistic expectations and she gave me impressive results. People have complimented me on my figure and my butt since my surgery. I love that it looks so natural on my frame that I can actually get away with saying it's squats to those who I don't want all in my business lol. I don't like a whole lot of attention, but when I go out, I feel the eyes following me. Even now, nearly 8 months post op, I'll occasionally text message Dr. Sato pictures of me. She responds and knows exactly who I am. That means a lot to me that I'm not just another booty to her lol. Her staff is so sweet and accommodating too. I'll be going back to her to get my arms taken care of pretty soon. I have also referred two friends, one who came with me to the consultation and one who came with me to a post op. They love her too and are considering taking the leap themselves. With all the horror stories and disappointments I've heard of, I feel so blessed to have found Dr. Sato and her team!

Happy Valentine's Day to ME! Best Decision I've Made for Myself!

She's the BEST! She kept it real about realistic goals and results. She's open, honest and very knowledgeable. She went into great detail about what's expected during surgery and postoperatively! I wish I could rate her a 10! She's absolutely the best!! Thank you, Dr. Erika Sato for this life changing experience. Can't wait to see my new body!

Big Butt Ready

So far I just love her honesty and responsiveness. She has definitely won me over for now. I can honestly say Dr. Sato is an amazing down to earth person overall. I must say thus surgery is no joke but she makes you feel like everything will be ok. She did way more then I asked and I appreciate her. Even though I'm still early on. I'm still impressed with her all together.

40 Yrs Old, 2 Kids, BBL with Mini Tummy Tuck

I had a consultation with 9 doctors and Dr. Sato by far had the best bed side manor. Every time I need her she responds personally right away. She is passionate in what she does and a perfectionist. You feel her heart as soon as you meet her and wants nothing but the best for you. I recommend her to everyone! From the very first time I met Dr. Sato I knew she was the right doctor for me. Not only is she stunning, she is also kind, caring, a great listener, professional, relatable, and a great communicator. The list goes on. Im scheduled on May 18th for a bbl and mini tummy tuck. This is a 40th birthday present to myself and I cant wait to see the results.

Needed to Be Rounded Out!! Houston, TX

Good team of people from beginning to end. When Dr sato was unavailable, I was able to reach the anesthesiologist, nurse, or patient coordinator. They were all great (except the one nurse that was tired of waiting for my boyfriend to pick me up after surgery. He didn't take that long and Houston is not a small city! I had never seen her b4, but she needs to just relax and do her job! ) other than that, it went well!

Very responsive and professional!

Dr. Sato's office was great with getting me in for a consultation in a timely manner and scheduling my procedure. She is very responsive and very professional. She will answer emails personally and in quick fashion. Couldn't have had a better experience.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Highly recommend Dr. Sato!

I was very nervous about getting a Fleur-De-Lis tummy tuck to improve the look of my abdomen after several operations left me with a long, depressed scar. I felt comfortable with Dr. Sato from the initial consultation. She took the time to answer all of my questions and I knew right away that she was going to be my surgeon. I was able to email Dr. Sato before and after my procedure with any...
