Dr. Cortés has invented the wonder breast reduction procedure in an attempt to improve the outcome of breast reduction. “Any competent and well trained plastic surgeon can reduce you breasts, but not everybody can give you the best shape and fullness at the same time,” says Dr. Cortés.

His obssession to accomplish the best results and his attention to details have resulted in a beautiful well-thought technique with unprecedented results.
