Horrible experience with dr Pavajeau Luis Munez in Bogota - Colombia, CO

I underwent a Rhinoplasty and a lower face lift...

I underwent a Rhinoplasty and a lower face lift with Dr Pavajeau. Both surgeries were unsuccessful and left me with a 30.000 dollars damages. The Rhinoplasty has left me with a weaken nasal valve and breathing problems. Despite I told hin I didnt want him to modify my nose tip. He took too much cartilage and my nose tip needs now a cartilage graft to support it. It has collapsed few months later and now it's droopy, bulbous and underprojected. He was supposed and has been paid for a lower face lift . He instead performed a rather aggressive underchin lipo wich left me with many scars under my chin and a saggy skin .If any doctor can advise how to correct this I'd be very grateful . I wil upload other pictures.

2 botched surgeries with Dr. Luis Pavajeau in Bogota

I'm really happy that Realself exists to warn people. I 'm also disappointed to see that my surgeon under a false nick Salome Bautista is defaming me and this should not be allowed .It's incredible that someone who underwent a surgery 12 years ago decided to write a review after the negative one I have uploaded . This is not smart Dr Pavajeau! I 'd like to add that I have no interest writing a negative review about a surgeon in Bogota . I underwent two botched surgeries with this incompetent surgeon and I have several reports I can upload from reputable surgeons in Europe and in the USA who certified the damages he caused me .PLEASE WARNING! STAY AWAY FROM THIS SURGEON!

I'm still waiting to undergo a revision rhinoplaty as no one is able to fix the extended damages he caused me . I need a 7 hours nose revision with rib graft to supply all the cartilage he took from nose. My nose collapsed and now it's under projected , droopy and bulbous. I have a valve problem causing me breathing difficulty. I 'm always wearing nasal strips .I underwent the rhinoplasty for a modest bump and now I have to rebuild my entire nose. All the structure has to redone For the lifting I have to wait a bit. He convinced me to undergo the surgery even if I didn't need it as you can see from the pictures . I have been there for a vaser lipo and I ended doing two surgeries.He has many negative reviews in Spanish .Everything is fake in his website.I really do not have any interest and his email showed the lack of respect towards patients. He has never proposed any solution . For my neck I spent thousands dollars doing Exilis, carboxitherapy, massage etc .

Horrible experience with Dr Luis Munez Pavajeau in Bogota

I just want to let you know I finally underwent a revision rhinoplasty on the 30 April in Los Angeles after I have seen 19 surgeons as I couldn't trust anyone. I had various cartilage grafts and the healing is longer and uncomfortable. My nose looks much better and I could finally breathe after the surgery despite I had splints inside my nose. My surgeon told me he has never seen such an aggressive rhinoplasty. Dr Pvajeau in Bogota took all the cartilage and I needed multiple grafts to reshape my nose and give it support . I will post pictures.Thank you all and good luck !

Grafts taken from my ear to rebuilt my nose

This picture shows clearly the graft taken from my ear during my revision rhinoplasty to rebuilt the entire nose.The healing process where grafts are involved is longer .I didn't fully recover yet .
Thank you all for your support.
