not happy!!! - Houston, TX

Long story short I am NOT HAPPY WITH MY END...

Long story short I am NOT HAPPY WITH MY END RESULTS!!! ((ITS BEEN 10months))
I'm a Cortez Doll!! And from what I've been seeing I'm not the only one who's had this problem. I was 5"5 125lbs and I had to gain weight so I gained 25lbs for this procedure. So straight to the point it's been 10months now and my upper stomach is protruding out. I thought it would go away after everything settled ANNND I work out 6 times a week and eat pretty healthy and the upper section of my stomach is still puffy/fatty it's horriable looking and very embarrassing. To make matters worse the lipo he did left my stomach and left leg lumpy. I did everything that I was told to do and even bought extra things to help and spent money on the "medical" messages to help even things out and nothing worked. I've been looking at other doctors procedure of the same and none look as bad as mine...or should I say Cortez.
My booty looks very nice, however I still have the same shape as before which is what I wanted work on more and was specified.

For any future Cortez Dolls I recommend you bring this topic up before following threw. Thankfully I'm
Smaller so I bounced back to 130 so it don't look as bad as the bigger women I've seen.
SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE OR BE BETTER EXPLAINED IN HIS CONSULTATIONS!!!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON CORTES!!

Hello all, I just want to start off by saying this is not a hate review.
Long story short, my BBL was March 2015.
After my surgery I've always had concerns about the way my body was looking/ healing. I do understand that you take a risk whenever doing any type of cosmetic surgery. HOWEVER...this has got to be one of the worst experiences I've ever been threw.
So to start off, I was left with a huge indent and bruise on my right leg. That still has not gone away after a year and some months. Also my stomach looks deformed as well. And still I was able to over look everything.

Before I went in I had a very small boxy build. I was only 125 before my weight gain. So I made it very clear numerous times I wanted him to focus on my hips. Granted I know I went for a BBL, however he assured me that if there was enough fat he could do it. I gained 45lbs for this. And he told me that was plenty. So a year later not only is my body deformed ( which yes...is a risk you take) I'm even more boxy then before with permient love handles. He injected fat to my hip bone area which is not what we talked about. I have very long legs and a small torso...so the discussion was he'd put it on the outter side of my butt to accentuate the "hip" are and minimize the look of my waste. NOT what I got!!! And I wore my garment for almost 9months after my surgery. I even spent more money on other things to help with the problem area and nothing works. Due to the fact that he injected fat to that area, the only way to rid the fat is to get it lipoed. I already spent close to $14,000 on this mess.

To make matters worse when I called into his office I asked to meet with him directly. So when I get there that's who they say I'm seeing. When I get called into the room, after 35min of waiting two women come in and said he's in surgery.... How convient right? So I being to tell them everything I just discussed here and the lady couldn't say anything. She just kept shaking her head yes. Then proceeded to tell me that.."well I wasn't there so I don't know what you guys discussed,so I'm going to have to dig up your file" so we literally wait in this room for and hour and 13min...just for her to tell me that the systems were down so she won't be able to get them today?????
So she says " when we get them back I'll have Doctor Cortez give you a call to set something up" .....STILL HAVE NOT GOTTEN AN EMAIL OR A CALL.

HE IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR MONEY. DO NOT GO TO HIM!!!
