Dr. Cortés routinely sees patients from other states and from all over the world. You can make arrangements to meet Dr. Cortés, who isknown worldwide as “Dr. Hourglass.” Patients frequently travel from within the United States and even from other continents to have surgery with Dr. Cortés.It would be our honor to arrange for your traveling needs. If you are considering some of the featured techniques developed by Dr. Cortés, like the Wonder breast procedures or the Hourglass buttock procedures, we can make your stay in Houston the most pleasant possible. Most patients will fly through Houston’s Bush International Airport and travel a short distance to Dr. Cortés’ office, located about 25 minutes from the airport in the Galleria at the heart ofdowntown Houston. The Surgical Center is located about 20 minutes from the airport.


The best way to determine if you are a candidate for a particular procedure is to submit photographs by Internet to With some pictures, we can get an idea of your needs and evaluate your situation in terms of candidacy for the specific plastic surgery procedure that you desire. It is important that we get the pictures before your travel arrangements are made because some patients are not suitable candidates for certain operations; in such cases traveling long distance might be completely unnecessary. Once Dr. Cortéshas reviewed your clinical history as well as your photographs, we will either e-mail you or call you to let you know if you are candidate for the operation you are requesting. If you are a likely candidate for a specific surgery, we will setup a preoperative consultation and make hotel arrangements if necessary. Once we have decided that you are a candidate for surgery, we will give you a cost for the procedures as well as hotel arrangements if necessary.

Dr. Cortés performs his surgery at the Houston Northwest Medical Center. This hospital is located near the intersection of FM 1960 and Highway 45. After the surgery, you will need to stay between 7 and 14 days in the Houston area. The length of stay will depend on your specific procedure, the typical healing time, and a specific recommendation by Dr. Cortés.

It is very important that you disclose all your medical issues, because your medical health and well-being are our chief concerns. It is required for out-of-town patientsto complete a form regarding any type of medical condition like high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, etc., before traveling from other states or other countries. We also require a pregnancy test as well as a very standard blood test to determine if you have underlying issues such as anemia that will not allow you have surgery with Dr. Cortés. We very much look forward to hearing from you, and we expect that your travel to Houston will be most fruitful, allowing for the kind of wonderful body transformation that Dr. Cortés always does.


1. HOURGLASS TUMMY TUCK ($11,993 – $13,826)

Most plastic surgeons provide a standard tummy tuck, which includes excision of excess skin, tightening of the abdominal wall, and removal of fat below the belly button. No liposculpture is included, and typically the patient will have a somewhat cylindrical shape after surgery. The Hourglass tummy tuck procedure, developed by Dr. Cortès, is the only technique that creates a curvy hourglass shape and enhances the woman’s body. This procedure includes:

  • Removing excess fat below the belly button.
  • Tightening the abdominal muscles.
  • Liposculpture of the abdomen and flanks.
  • Liposuction of the back.
  • Transferring fat to the hips.

The difference between an Hourglass tummy tuck and a standard abdominoplasty is truly remarkable. The cost of an Hourglass tummy tuck varies per individual, based on anatomic type, amount of fat, and other factors. Dr. Cortès bases his rates on the time it will take to perform your surgery. The smaller you are and the less fat you have, the less the procedure would cost. The heavier you are and the more fat we need to remove to sculpt your body into an hourglass shape, the higher the cost would be. Whatever the cost, you will have a better shape, and there is no other technique that will provide you the same improvement.


Another popular procedure developed by Dr. Cortès is the Hourglass butt augmentation. People immediately think of the Brazilian butt augmentation as the procedure to improve buttock shape, but actually this procedure provides only projection, or in other words, how much your butt sticks out. The Hourglass buttock augmentation does much more than this. The Hourglass butt augmentation not only increases projection but also creates an hourglass shape. All these areas receive attention in the Hourglass butt augmentation, and all are included in the price:

  • Liposuction of the abdomen.
  • Liposuction of the back.
  • Liposuction of the sides/flanks.
  • Liposuction of the thighs.

Fat injection will be performed to the buttock to enhance projection, as in the typical Brazilian butt augmentation, but additional fat injection will be done to give you a beautiful sexy hourglass shape.  In the event that you have enough fat, Dr. Cortès will add fat transfer to the hips at no additional cost. Note: If you want liposuction on areas that are not included in the areas listed above, such as chin or arms, we do charge $750 per area.


For patients who do not have enough fat but desire buttock augmentation, Dr. Cortès performs buttock augmentation using silicone implants. However, he rarely performs a buttock implant alone, because this does not provide the best shape.  The procedure includes liposuction on any area where the patient does have excess fat. Liposuction may be done in some or all of these areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Sides/flank
  • Thighs

With the fat harvested by this liposuction, Dr. Cortès is able to do fat transfer to the hips and sides of your buttocks in addition to placing the silicone implant.  This allows him to create the attractive hourglass shape. The cost of the Hourglass buttock augmentation thus includes not only insertion of the buttock implant, but also reshaping your buttocks with fat transfer.

4. HOURGLASS HIP ($10,500)

For those patients who are more concerned about having a curvy figure and/or having enough fat for their buttock, Dr. Cortès has developed the Hourglass hip procedure.  In this procedure Dr. Cortès harvests fat from the abdomen, flanks, upper and lower back, thighs, and arms. This fat is transferred only to the hips. The hourglass hip starting price is $10998 and the cost will depend on how much fat you have and how long it will take to harvest the fat. The smaller you are, the lower the price will be. The price is higher for larger patients because more time and effort is required to achieve an acceptable result.

5. HOURGLASS MOMMY MAKEOVER ($17,000.00 – $24,000.00)

Dr. Cortès also provides the Hourglass mommy makeover, a procedure that combines an Hourglass body procedure with Wonder breast procedures.  Depending on your individual anatomy, breast type, and firmness of your breast tissue, Dr. Cortès may combine either Hourglass tummy tuck, Hourglass lipo, or Hourglass hips with any of our Wonder breast procedures like the Wonder breast lift, Wonder breast reduction, Wonder breast revision, Wonder breast augmentation or Wonder breast lift with implants. This is why the procedure price varies from patient to patient. Some examples:

  • An Hourglass tummy tuck with breast augmentation and implant would cost $17,000-$19,000
  • An Hourglass tummy tuck, Wonder breast lift, or Wonder breast reduction and/or breast lift with implant-augmentation would cost $19,000-$24,000.
6. HOURGLASS LIPO ($10,998.00)

Hourglass lipo is a limited liposuction procedure specifically targeting the waist. It does not include fat transfer to the hips. The cost varies depending on the areas where you want liposuction to be performed. Typically, the procedure starts at about $10,998.00.  Adding more areas where liposuction is done increases the cost of the procedure.



In working out the best plan for breast augmentation, Dr. Cortès individualizes the choice of implant for each patient, based on size, shape, and other factors. One important choice involves the type of implant used, saline or silicone. The cost of breast augmentation with saline implants is $5,330. Breast augmentation with silicone implants costs $6,830.

2. WONDER BREAST LIFT: ($13,118)

After years of performing hundreds of breast lifts, Dr. Cortès developed the Wonder breast lift to accomplish the best results. The Wonder breast lift is very different from the typical breast lift offered by other surgeons. In the Wonder lift, your breasts will be reshaped in such a way that they give the impression of an augmentation using breast implants. Results are much longer-lasting than those of a typical breast lift, in which only skin is excised and the skin envelope alone is used to hold the breast in place. The cost of a Wonder breast lift typically starts around $11,860. The procedure includes liposuction in the axilla and on the side of the breasts, which improves the overall result.


 The Wonder breast reduction, developed by Dr. Cortès, also includes reshaping of the breast to provide you with a nicer contour and appearance. In this procedure, he not only reduces your breasts but also reshapes each breast and suspends it using natural anatomic structures, not just skin. This provides the best results possible. You will look like you have implants but without implants, and the results will last longer due to the internal breast suspension and reshaping. The Wonder breast reduction starts around $13,818.  Breast shaping with liposuction is included in the price.

4. WONDER BREAST LIFT WITH IMPLANT:($11,435 – $12,435)

The price of Breast lift with an implant varies depending on how much sagginess is present. The price range starts at $6500 and can go as high as $11,270.  The amount of sagginess you have will determine the type of implant that is needed and how much work we need to do to provide you with a very nice breast shape.  Dr. Cortès performs liposuction if necessary on the axilla and the side of the breast to provide you with the best possible contour. This liposuction is included in the price.

5. WONDER BREAST REVISION ($6500.00 – $14500.00)

Dr. Cortès routinely revises breasts in patients who have had typical complications of aesthetic breast surgery. These include implant malposition, rippling, synmastia, wide areolas, and implant infection or malfunction requiring removal and replacement. The cost depends on the complexity of the problem and ranges from $6500.00 to $14,500.00



Brow lift to address facial aging or drooping typically starts around $5500.


The price of eyelid surgery depends on whether surgery is performed on upper lids, lower lids, or both. The simplest procedure starts around $6500.

3. RHINOPLASTY ($8500.00)
4. BRACHIPLASTY (7,650.00-$8,360)

The cost of brachioplasty, or arm enhancement, will depend on how much excess skin you have and how much liposuction is needed. Brachioplasty typically starts about $7,650-$8,360.


Dr. Cortès will provide liposuction of the chest and excision of skin in patients who have excess skin. The cost of a typical procedure starts around $7500.

6. MEDIAL THIGH LIFT: ($7,110.00)

The price of a medial thigh lift to tighten the thighs starts around $7,110.  It may be higher if a large amount of tissue needs to be removed, as this increases the procedure time.
