Incredible Experience - Houston, TX

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!

Dr Fortes Rocks - Houston, TX

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!!
