5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I was nervous when I first started my journey and looking for the right physician. Dr. Fortes made me feel so comfortable and I trusted him from the beginning. I had an anchor lift, reduction, and a small implant placed higher to keep my breast perky so to speak. He listens to his patients and I have incredible results. I cannot thank you enough!
I'm a 29 year old mother of 3-ages 8 years, 19 months and 7 month old girls. I got a breast augmentation when I was 18, but having kids and weight fluctuations throughout the years has put a toll on my body. It's 2 days before the big day and I am an emotional rollercoaster! Scared, nervous,excited..
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I sought out many different plastic surgeons and went to many consults before making my decision and I really liked Dr Fortes attitude and his realistic approach. I had a tummy tuck with Dr Fortes and he ROCKS!! He is very thorough when it comes to satisfying his patients and always lets you know up front what you can expect. I would definetely recommend him as a plastic surgeon because he really is an artist when it comes to body contouring and tummy tucks. Rock ON DR FORTES!!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I have been putting off this surgery for years. I made my final decision when I was asked to be in a friends wedding. Dr. Fortes and his staff were wonderful from consultation to after care. They have given me a new lease on life! I highly recommend Dr. Fortes and his staff. Any woman that is putting off having breast reduction surgery should not. It's the best thing I have ever done!
I have had many injections from Perlane to Radiesse to Juvederm Ultra and more and Dr. Fortes is the best! I've watched over the last 4 years him perform many procedures on my friends and much body contouring and he is the BOMB!!!!! You could not ask for a better plastic surgeon that really has the expertise/knowledge and hands to perform these surgeries! His body contouring is awesome! I...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
I love Dr. Fortes. He has a heart of gold. I had my surgery today and my level of anxiety was at a extreme high. I was shaking and crying his staff really calmed me down. Especially the woman doing my anastesia. She was so sweet her name was Dr. Smith. She started crying from seeing me upset. That really touched me. I had seen Dr Fortes over the past 3 years before finally gong threw with this...

1 out of 5 stars Body Lift
I was scheduled to have surgery in January. Unfortunately, I called Dr. Fortes office back in October after my husband was diagnosed with a rare aggressive cancer and was given less than a year. I requested a refund when I cancelled the appointment. I put up my deposit over 6 months ago with over 3 months notice of cancellation. I have called Denice, my coordinator every week and have sent...
