5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

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

I founded Dr. Cortes in YouTube and then Realself. He has the most educational videos in Youtube. I also could not find anything negative about him. I have no regrets of having my surgery with the best buttock augmentation surgeon in the United States. I search endlessly online and I founded Dr. Cortes in YouTube and real self. He has a lot of educational videos in YouTube that help me understand almost everything about the Brazilian butt augmentation. I search hundreds of pictures and the most dramatic changes were Dr. Cortes. You can tell by looking at his gallery that he understand the hourglass figure. I also looked Dr. Jimerson and Dr. Samala and I think they are both good drs but their results were not as impressive as Dr. Cortes. In addition Dr. Jimerson shows many patients with dressings and Band-Aids after surgery this means that showing results that are very early after surgery is not a realistic expectation. I talked to many drs and base with my conversation with them your buttock will look much larger due to swelling and fluid and inflammation early after surgery. Then the buttock will shrink down. Dr. Cortes actually came to see me a few times at the hotel. His staff was wonderful. Janiris his wife was very caring. I can’t believe my transformation right now I am so happy with my results.

The New Me Unbelievable Results!!!! - Houston, TX

I choose Dr. Cortes after doing a very thrill research online. The thing that impresses me the most are his before and after pictures. There is a change in the patient body and proportions that is 'sunbelievable!!! I search other Dr's in Florida but many of the patient look actually very good even before the surgery. So you can expect a good result after surgery. I guess is the Miami diet LOL. I look for somebody that shows work close to my body shape and skin tone. Also every time I went to his clinic he was busy and I always had to wait a little. This was very different from other local plastic surgeons that were empty when I went to visit them. As a matter of fact I called a plastic surgeon office in Houston and they refer me to him. WOW!!!. If a plastic surgeon refer me to Dr. Cortes that must be that he is good. and they were correct... I will post pictures soon.. need to ask my honey...

Dr. Cortes is the Best! - Houston, TX

Customer service was superb! Results were amazing! I highly recommend Dr. Cortes. I have done thorough research and even considered going to Colombia and to Mexico for my procedures until I came across Dr. Cortes. His before and after speaks for themselves. He has perfected body sculpting and the aesthetic shape of the buttocks.

I personally know two women who have used Dr. Cortes and his work speaks for itself. He is a first class doctor and I couldn't be happier. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Cortes and his Staff. They made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. I have always thought about Plastic Surgery and I am just so happy that I ultimately chose Dr. Cortes to perform my surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!! Thanks you Dr. Cortes!!!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision

Awesome Surgeon! - Houston, TX

Words could never detail the deep appreciation and admiration I have developed for Doctor Cortes. I feel like a work of art! His surgeon hands are those of a sculpture and for the first time in my life I pass by the mirror and do a double take, taken back by the fact that the body in that mirror is mine. Is that hour glass figure mine?? Yes, it is! I wear things now I would have never worn and the ugly tummy tuck scar I originally had, left by a nightmare experience I had with another doctor, is no where to be found. All that is there is a thin line lower than my bikini line! More importantly, though, Dr. Cortes is such a caring surgeon. I got three procedures done –breast, tummy tuck and my arms, so needless to say he was going to get a lot of questions. Not once was he unavailable and even saw me on a Sunday when I needed him to ease my fears about the healing process. He cared for me patiently and always knew exactly what to say to make me feel comfortable. Doctor Cortes can be described in two short words: Life changing.

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.

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...
