I have just recently put a down payment and scheduled my surgery for 8/23 i have my first office visit with ortega on 7/18 i did my consultation through emails. I am so nervous about the procedure and wanted to hear some experiences from previous patients of ortega. I really wanted to know how is the surgery like from other woman who has had it done. Im worried about having it done in office and not hospital so some feed back and advice is greatly appreciated. I will post before and after pics and cant wait to share my journey with you all!!!


Ok now im thinking of getting implants too i called my coordinator she quoted me for 6000 for extended tt lipo and implants not a bad price mine as well do it all i will make my final decision when i see ortega 7/18 cant wait
