artistic vision with the latest technical advances in plastic surgery

“I combine my artistic vision with the latest technical advances in plastic surgery to give my patients the results they deserve.” — Dr. Paul Fortes.

Meet Paul Fortes, MD

Dr. Fortes is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, both ABMS-recognized board certifications. His full training in general surgery at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and plastic surgery at Northwestern Medical Center in Chicago over eight years is one of the most extensive in his field. Dr. Fortes has always been at the top of his class at every level of his education. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rice University and was selected for membership in the exclusive Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society while at Baylor College of Medicine. He is currently a Diplomat of the American College of Surgeons and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Upper Blepharoplasty: a procedure that involves resection of redundant skin and/or musculature of the upper eyelid. 

Due to aging of the Upper Eyelid or Genetics, a patient may notice the upper lids feel “heavy.”

By just doing the upper eyelids, Dr. Fortes is able to make the patient comfortable by using local anesthesia. 

However, this procedure is most often paired with a brow lift and lower blepharoplasty. Doing the three together, we would need to go to the OR to use general anesthesia!

Ellacor is a relatively new treatment that is meant for deep lines and wrinkles located on the middle part of the face down to the jawline. I will also be using it for other areas of skin that can use tightening as well.

The way it works is by removing a little bit of skin, literally by coring the skin out, so about 5% of the skin gets removed. The effect is that once you have healed, you will have tighter and better looking skin. 

We did this treatment under local anesthesia and the patient did great! She was quite comfortable for the entire procedure. *We want to note that it can also be done under general anesthesia while patients are completely asleep. 

The best part is that  Ellacor falls in a perfect place between major surgery and things like micro needling and radio frequency treatments which makes it perfect for a patient who wants to have an improvement, but isn’t quite ready for a facelift.

3 treatments are recommended spaced about 30 days apart. Follow along to see this patients journey!

I’m excited about it and I can’t wait to incorporate it into my practice more.

Breast augmentation recovery doesn’t end when the incisions are healed. Anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months after surgery, your implants will settle into a lower, more natural looking position. 🍒 

• factors that influence settling • 

🍒 implant placement- Implants that are placed below the muscle may experience upper pole or above the nipple fullness at first. Also, implants may take longer to settle in an athletic patient with strong chest muscles. 

🍒 implant size: larger implants are going to settle at a faster rate than smaller implants due to the weight and well.. gravity. 

🍒 post op instructions: following Dr Fortes’ post surgery instructions will speed healing and can help implants settle sooner. After your incisions are healed, massages will be your best friend.

Guess what the NUMBER ONE thing we are told when @drfortes_plasticsurgery mentions adding some fat to the booty to create a better contour is…. 

…wait for it……

 “I don’t know about that, I don’t want a butt like Kim K” 😄 

Every once in a while we will get a patient who does have that desire and the answer is NOPE.

Education time. One round of fat grafting to the butt safely is never going to give you the result of a butt like Kim Kardashian. Period. It would take multiple surgeries to get you built up to that. 

So no need to worry, you can trust Dr. Fortes to fill in the areas that lack volume to simply create a better shape 🍑✨
