5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

There is Dr. Cortes and then Everybody else - Houston, TX

I have my consultation with Dr. Cortes early January he knew exactly what I wanted. He told me that he was injecting approximately 400 mL of fat into my hips and also around 1000 to 1100s of fat in my buttocks. In Texas he told me there's actually no limit on the amount of fat or liposuction that you can remove in one setting. It seem like in Florida, there is a l limit on the amount of fat...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision

Awesome Surgeon! - Houston, TX

I had an old tummy tuck that needed to be revised. The original scar was almost up to my waist and the additional skin around my stomach was driving me crazy. On top of that my breasts were flacid and had no shape! Wanted to put two pics on of before and after.

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

The Very Best Surgeon for Male Breast Reduction - Houston, TX

For me it was psychologically necessary to look in the mirror and see a flat chest and not the appearance of gynecomastia. After losing a great deal of weight, I lost none in the chest. For me this was the first step which will be followed by a tummy tuck later.

Brazilian Butt Lift Alternatives If You are Not a Candidate

What To Do If You Are Not a Candidate For a Brazilian Butt Lift Written by Wilberto Cortes, M.D. If you don't have enough fat for a Brazilian but augmentation, there are actually two options that might help you accomplish the desired results.

Knowing the Ideal Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift Written By Wilberto Cortes The main factor that determines if you are going to be a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift will be your weight and the location of the fat in your body.

The Recovery for a Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian butt lift recovery Written by Wilberto Cortes The recovery period for a Brazilian butt lift is about 10-14 days. I typically keep the patient overnight for observation.

In addition, if properly done, this is a surgery that takes between 4-6 hrs depending on the projection of the butt that the patient wants. 1. Do not seat for about 2 weeks. This...
