I am a size 8, waist 30 and breast 34 DDD. I received a tummy tuck in 2007 due to a cesarean section in 2006. I will be honest and say I never had a big stomach. Always small waist and big boobs so that small pooch from child birth had to go. I want really happy with the results. I hated my naval as i was left with just a hole and the surgery scar could have been better. Moving on to now. I'm pretty active, and eat healthy. I love to juice. Though I'm only 5'3 and a size 8 some doctors may feel I'm overweight but I'm just a curvy person and I don't personally like the way I look small. I started researching BBL because I had volume at the top and bottom of my butt but the middle was more flat and square shaped. I hated this. My arms are also something I was never a fan of. After reading many reviews in the DR and Columbia due to safety reasons I decided to look into doctors locally in Houston. I started to follow Dr. Cortez along with others. One day I ran across Erika Sato. I was pretty impressed with what I saw but that wasn't my desk breaker. I sent 5 email consultation/ question emails to 5 different doctors on a Sunday. The only person that responded timely was Erika. Here's the thing. Not an automated email. Not a patient coordinater or office manager but the actual surgeon herself. This is unheard of. Erika is extremely personable and answered all my questions. I was told to email her with any other questions I may have. Once I scheduled my consultation and actually met Erika I was sold. Pretty sad a button and very down to earth and honest. She connects with her patients. Erika establishes actual RELATIONSHIPS. Day 1 and 2 of surgery were the hardest for me and was expected but Erika and her staff had me fully prepared. I wouldn't change anything. I'm 3 weeks post op and loving my hour glass figure at nearly 40. I received just what I wanted. I didn't want a huge butt but just enough to curve out the flatness. I wanted to look natural unlike others I've seen. Very realistic. During consultation because I didn't have enough fat on my tummy, sides, and back we decided to include my ARMS. I will be more than happy to answer any questions add this if just an overview.
