What People Say About Dr. Wilberto Cortes, MD

I am a 45 years old woman who got the hourglass buttock augmentation three months ago. Many people would ask as to why would a 45-year-old woman get plastic surgery, but let me tell you that age doesn’t matter when it comes to your body image and self-esteem. From my experience, I can tell you that old women are equally affected my aesthetic shortcomings and flaws in the body as young women. I decided to undergo the hourglass buttock augmentation with doctor Cortes to get back my youthful body that was curvaceous and aesthetically welcoming. I had the hourglass body until I turned 35 and already had multiple pregnancies. I believe that both aging and pregnancies affected my physical appearance. I was aware that with age come health problems. When we grow old, our bodies not always function like how they did during our youth. What this means is that I knew I would be exposed to higher risks by undergoing an invasive procedure. But my plastic surgeon assessed my health and told me that

I had a breast reduction with dr. Cortes last year and the surgery was a success. My results are very good, I can finally do things that were impossible or very uncomfortable to do before and I couldn’t thank dr. Cortes enough for all his hard work and the support I got from him and his team. Everybody was very kind and understood my request, despite the fact that it is probably not a very common one. I know women resort to plastic surgery to get breasts, not to get rid of breasts, but for me it was such a terror everyday to live with them. I was a 32H. I have a very narrow back and the breasts were just spilling everywhere. My husband made fun of me saying that my breasts are even visible from the back. Like when people look at my back, they can still see the huge breasts. It was not easy to live like this and I was grateful when dr. Cortes took me in for surgery. I am now a 32 D cup, which is still big, but more manageable. My breasts look good and my whole body is looking better sin

I think I was very close to depression when I went in for a consultation with dr Cortes. I was looking terrible after three pregnancies, my partner was cheating on me with a friend and I couldn’t say anything because I wasn’t able to take care of the kids alone, I haven’t got a place to move, so I just stayed there and felt worst with each day. Until a friend brought up dr Cortes and the idea of plastic surgery. I always wanted to get bigger breasts and now also the tummy needed some work. I knew my husband would support this decision as he was willing to spend money on my silence so I just went for it. I got an hourglass tummy tuck and breast lift with implants with Dr Cortes and it was the best thing I ever did and probably the only thing that I did for myself in the last decades. The recovery was difficult, but I had a friend helping me and the months went by to uncover beautiful results. My body was curvaceous, my breasts were so perky and sexy I just couldn’t believe it

On the first meeting I told the doctor that I couldn’t take more than a week off from work and he said that I am not going to get the surgery than. I was put off by this, I really have a demanding job and is not possible to stay away for too long. I had a meeting with someone else and he didn’t even ask about taking time off from work and we didn’t discuss many things Dr. Cortes talked about. This guy seemed determined to seal the deal asap and I hated the attitude so I went back to Dr. Cortes after I have arranged at work for a replacement for a week. The surgery went on well and I think I could have went back to work sooner than the doctor said. I had a wonder breast augmentation. But he insisted it is better to be safe than sorry and to take things easy. I wasn’t allowed to lift anything, not even to stretch to get the car keys from the holder. I noticed the pain is more intense if I am more active during the day. I mostly had pain and a discomfort to the touch in the evenings, but

Hey guys! I can’t believe I am doing this, but I have to tell you about my experience with dr Cortes! It’s easy to find lots of details about him online and I spend quite a few nights following his youtube videos, but he is even better in person! Hahaha I met him last year in march and since then lots have happened but it all started with a consultation with him. I wanted bigger butts but I was half half, worried about the results, what if the recovery period will be difficult, you know, the us

If you never went to medical school and you want to know all the details about how a procedure is performed, you should go see doctor Cortes. The first meeting we had was a bit like a lecture at university, but targeted at me. I wanted a tummy tuck and maybe some lipo, he recommended the hourglass tummy tuck which also involves the fat collected with lipo to be reinjected into the hips. It sounded good in theory and I didn’t even know it is possible to do something about the hips, but I really l

Hello! When people ask about my plastic surgery, the first thing I tell them is that it is crucial to choose the plastic surgeon carefully. It is so important for the plastic surgeon to be trust worthy and to give you support during the transformation process. The thing is that getting plastic surgery, especially what I had, the breast augmentation, things don’t happen overnight. I mean the procedure takes about two hours and after this you might be tempted to think you are off the hook and it’s

The first meeting with doctor Cortes was more than a year ago. It was kinda short and I felt a bit rushed to make a decision and schedule the procedure and I don’t think I was ready for this now. I was just looking for an opinion and maybe some advice. I had a boob job done in Thailand in my youth and I didn’t have any checkups since and I was thinking maybe the implants need to be replaced as the breasts were getting saggy. His assessment was that I needed a breast lift and to replace the impl

Getting surgery with Dr. Cortes was the best decision I even made in my life. I wasn’t in a happy place when my friend booked me in for a consultation. I went there more dragged by my friend than by my own desire. I didn’t feel like doing much about my looks because I didn’t think much can be done.

The results after my surgery was not as impressive as you see on the site. I wanted lots of volume on the hips and a smaller waist and I certainly don’t look like in the pictures. I went to see Dr. Cortes after I saw my cousin over Christmas, she was five months after getting a mommy makeover with him and I didn’t recognized her from behind, she had this body shape that I wanted too. Anyway, I’m now almost six months after surgery and I don’t look like her at all. The doctor said each patient be

I was following Dr. Cortes on social media for years before I actually got the courage to go see him in person. After that first mail, everything was so fast and smooth, it was hard to believe. I always wanted to have bigger breasts, but also round breasts, like you see in glossy magazines, almost popping out of the bras because they are so full. But I was always put off by the idea of big scars and complications that can occur after breast surgery. Many of my friends who have implants had all s

He is very money hungry, please do not go to him! He gave me 3 rd degree burns & horrible scarring from Liposuction. Whenever you address your concern with him, he blows you off. He does not tell patients once you leave the state of Texas he can no longer treat you as a patient because he is not licensed in other states.

I had a wonder breast lift in May 2018. My breasts are perky, but my nipples are not the same size or shape, one of my scars under my breast is very thick. I have skin where he folded the skin over. I also went in for lipo with fat transfer to hips and buttock implants which he did not do and a hospital nurse had to call him by phone to tell me why. I still have no feeling in some areas of my body after lipo with this Dr and he couldnt explain why. 7 months later still no feeling no explanation.

After discussion with various doctors/surgeons, I finally selected Dr Wilberto for Butt Augmentation. He knows his job and well experience. He made me comfortable and revealed all pros and cons. His bed side manner was awesome. Staff was supportive but they are too busy due to heavy rush of patients.

I must say, going to Dr. Cortes was the best investment I ever made. He is so professional and take time when he examines me. I’m a senior with s body of a woman in her 20’s. I definitely have a hour glad shape and always getting complements about my figure. I would recommend Dr. Cortes in a heartbeat. Dr.Cortes staff is very friendly and professional. Being a patient of Dr.Cortes was an experience I will never regret and I will recommend him as he is the best Plastic Surgent in the world. S Jon

Went for advice on either getting implants or doing the fat transfer to my hips. He ASSURED me that I had enough fat to obtain my goal (beautiful hourglass hips). HE LIED. (he doesn't do hip implants)He said he could make me over and the most fat I would was 30% of that injected So I decided to trust his professional opinion, got a loan and went after my dream. 3 months later, my hips are gone, have multiple scars, skin patches and a 11k loan to pay off. A good doctor is honest, this man IS NOT
