Pretty sad - Aventura, FL

Well here is a little background of me. Im 20 something. I have had two breast augs. The fist one was a botched surgery and the next was a revision to correct what was left. So because of my previous bad experience, I have thoroughly researched MANY surgeons. I have come to the conclusion that Dr. Salama is the right choice for me. I'm wanting a sexy feminine silhouette & every time he delivers from the results and reviews of others I have seen.

I personally, love reading everyone stories about their journey through their surgery. So I am posting this for myself, and now maybe hopefully help others as well. I will be looking at others stories to try and make a list of items I will be possibly needing. Hopefully this helps as well.

Okay sorry I haven't posted in a while ladies!...

Okay sorry I haven't posted in a while ladies! Obviously as we all know Salama sx bookings can be a long wait! & well, I want this alot sooner than what he can provide. I'm still keeping Dr. Salama in mind, but just looking for more options. So with that said, I have been contemplating with the idea of going with: Dr.Afifi, Dr.Jimerson, Dr.Mendieta or (my top choice,just wish there was more reviews of him on here) Dr.Tachmes.

Sorry I forgot Dr.Pazmino lol UGH, so many...

I'm not one to vent and share all my business...

I'm not one to vent and share all my business online like this but I'm truly taken back and very upset by the way the staff at Elite Plastic Surgery has handled my situation. When I canceled my surgery date I talked with Nancy and everything was fine. I was very upset about everything happening in my personal life and she was vey comforting. I had payed a deposit and asked if there was any way I could get it back since I obviously wasn't planning for everything to happen like this. I'm taking on all the bills and funeral arrangements that my mom never put anything aside for. Nacy said the decision of gettig my deposit back, would be up to Rueben. So my request was forwarded to him, and this is where I'm at now. Months have passed and I haven't heard a single peep back from any of the staff at Elite Plastics. Looking back Its really sad how these were the people I trusted getting my surgery with. People that I'm not even worth their time anymore. I would completely understand if I had changed surgeons or something and wanted my deposit back but this was something completely out of my hands and all I asked for was help.

Im sooo sorry for your loss

I'm sorry for the loss of your mom. Nancy and Cynthia ( whom are both very nice) are mainly sale reps, they are there to convince you & walk u through the surgery steps . After its done they are busy working with new/potential clients. That's just their job. But we are all human and I think that a loss so grand is the exception to the no refund rule, clearly we are all just a number but I do think they have hearts & do care about customer service so just call Reuben and explain to him your situation & I'm sure he will understand. God Bless
