Straxx Went for a lower bleph and correction to nose to breathe better and straigten deviated septum. Convinced me to do an upper bleph. Also convinced me to do a laser peel to face. My eyes were hooded and pulled, Owl Eyes was my nickname. Spent thousands to fix and still not right. I have those wrinkly bags under that I never had before surgery. I barely have wrinkles still on rest of my face. Dr. said not to laser flat that is part of the procedure or it would pull more. Had to cantherplex to try and pull bottom up. My oval shaped eyes are NOT oval and I have to wear eyeliner EVERY second of the day to make them look normal. Appear more extended on outer end. My nose droops and they even admit that there's no tip. It just falls and it's bulbous, which I never had. They had changed names and so I didn't see any complaints prior to surgery. They wanted to do a face lift at a discount to make up for their botched work. They offered to pull the nose out to create a tip. I'm too petrified to let them touch me. Surgeon denied wrong doing. Blamed my eyes. Took way too much out on upper lid. I need more repair to both and I'm so unhappy. What I thought I saved by using them wound up costing me twice as much and still not right. Only one doctor agreed to try and fix my eyes (that was most crucial). My lids didn't even shut all the way! Other doctors I consulted with didn't want to touch me!!. Sunrise Florida
I went in for a lower bleph and correction to nose that still needed to straighten and lift tip to help breathe better. I was convinced to do an upper bleph and laser peel. They had switched name of company, unbeknownst to me, and I researched Dr. and Straxx and saw no complaints filed. I didn't think about reviews back then. 2008. Dr. seemed to know exactly what I needed.
My bleph resulted in hooding and droopiness. My lids would not even shut. I acquired the name owl eyes and I used to have oval shaped eyes. I had to spend more money to correct than initial surgery. I went there, regretably, to save money. I had to have a forhead lift and a cantherplex to lift the brows and pull up the drooping, repsectively.
The nose was incomplet with no tip as admitted by the Director. it just fell off and now my nose droops. Defeated the purpose to try and breathe better. My nose is bulbous now. I think I breathe worse now in fact.
The Director told me they could lengthen the nose, pulling forward so it doesn't droop. They wanted to do a face lift at a discount to make up for the blotched surgery. My initial Dr, an oriental doctor, supposedly the best at blepherplasts, of course blamed my eyes and placement of brows. Unbelievable. Needless to say, I wouldn't let them touch me. I wanted my money back.
After a bleph, they're supposed to smooth out the crappiness that occurs after removing the "bagss" (or fat). My doctor said not to do because it would cause more droopiness. So now I have this nasty crapiness, evident when I smile that I NEVER had. I barely have wrinkles now and back then I didn't have a wrinkle issue at all! It was
I went to doctors I consulted with and others to fix my eyes which was the most important and most severe of the two blotched up procedures. Saying blotched but that is a HUGE understatment. The correct word begins wth an F and ends with a KED!!
NO doctor wanted to touch me!! One said, who only did eyes, that my eyes were a surgeons dream, simple. However, I wanted the nose done too and he didn't do that. I wish I had somebody tell me NOT to go to Straxx. I guess I was naieve. I did my homework and was proud that I did and felt I was in good hands.
The day of my surgery, the Doctor was taking forever, supposedly in a surgery prior to mine. My appointment was only the 2nd one scheduled. I wish I had left.
I wouldn't go out for a year till I could afford to do the forehead lift. I was so depressed and still am over it. I'm angry and insecure as well for both by nose and eyes. I will not go without eyeliner for a second. I need it to give the appearance of a lengthened, more almond shaped eye. I'm going to look into a permanent eye makeup for the eyeliner.
I looked into suing but knowing it's elective, I didn't think I would be able to. I didn't have money to pursue at the time and I was very busy trying to work, single mom.
Now I hear of more and more complaints and I want to do a class action suit. My pain and suffering and the extra costs to fix should not come out of my pocket. The loss of work for the forehead lift, all this adds up. It's not just the extra cost of correction.
