Hey BBL sisters,
I wasn't going to update on my review until after I saw Dr Miami for my post op appointment..but due to recent events, I will no longer procrastinate to voice my after care treatment .
I will speak only of the incident that happened tonight, and as for my opinion on the Dr himself, I will leave that until later on this week...
You may be wondering "Why doesn't she say what she has to say"? And thats completely logical, and understandable. But, I strongly believe that, Doctors are slandered because of the emotional aspect of this surgery. And I want to be the difference, AND I chose to be 100% fair.
The truth is... women from all over the world come to real self looking for opinions on these highly celebritized doctors based off their post op patients. And although some reviews are false, there are reviews that are factual, and the facts are the facts! We "the unknown" non celebrity-based patients provide the platform for these doctors to be recognized and seen! And the average woman should be treated in the same respects and regard as the celebrity patients. And unfortunately, I am one of those cases who was not held to this standard.
This evening I had a terrible accident after my bbl, and accidents after surgery is no bueno! My drain attachment got caught on a bath drawer, and was yanked out mostly all the way. There was blood everywhere! I was so frightened! I panicked, I cried, I was in agony! So I calmed down, looked at my wrist, and remember The Doctors words "Call that number anytime of day for any emergency" so in my mind, this seemed like an emergency. Now this wasn't my first time calling this hotline number. I called it before, and sometimes I would receive a phone call back, but I was mostly answered VIA text message. This is a problem for me! I do not want an emergency text line, I want to physically speak to a people who knows what they are doing. But In this situation, I called with high hopes of resolution. I received no answer again! I called again, no answer!
So I texted "CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL WHEN YOU GET THE CHANCE...THANK YOU"
1 hours and 10 mins later I receive a text responding " Yes, what is it regarding"?
Now at this point, I am super pissed off, but more so disappointed. Wouldn't a moral person with a conscience call back?
"I was told this is Dr Miami's surgical hotline. I was told I can contact this number at any time if I needed help. I asked for a phone call because I had an accident earlier, and I have asked for a phone call...and I have not received a phone call"
She responded " Hello, we called and had no answer"
So at this point I sent her a screen shot of my call log so she can see that I haven't received anything from her besides the text message sent 1 hour and 10 mins later. KEEP IN MIND, I AM STILL IN AGONIZING PAIN AND STILL BLEEDING FROM THIS SITE THAT WAS RIPPED!
She then sends me back a screen shot of the "same text message" that was 1 hour and 10mins late. so I ask her "Why are you sending me a picture of the message that is an hour an 10 mins late"?.
She then says "A text reply hun to show you we did text"...
Once again, I asked for a phone call and I told her it was an emergency, why is she still trying to prove something that we are not even discussing?
She then says " ANYHOW, SEND ME A PICTURE OF WHERE THE DRAIN WAS PARTIALLY RIPED OUT? IT SHOULD BE OK"
So my final text message to her was this " Miss, I have been asking for help this entire weekend, and all I've asked for was a phone call instead of a text message, and we are still texting now"
At that moment she finally calls me. And upon answering the phone, she had the nastiest attitude I have ever heard from a qualified nurse in my life! I couldn't even get a word in without her talking over me! I said to her respectfully, and I couldn't even scream , and could barley talk because of anesthesia effects. She said and I quote " Look do you want me to help you or not because I didn't call you to argue with you and I'm not doing this with you" At that moment I lost it, and I started crying and breaking down. I had no one to help me, but this woman on the phone, and she treatment me so meanly, so rudely. I was In shock! I started crying... telling her that I'm not trying to argue, but I'm in pain, can you please just help me, but I just gave up and gave the phone to my mom. And I closed my door, and cried myself to sleep.
I could not believe that a licensed nurse that a high profile Doctor hired... could treat me as if I did something totally wrong. And I didn't want to pass any judgment on this mans practice. Believe me, as there is a God in heaven, I tried my best to be so fair. But this is the worst I have ever been treated. And I am so hurt and disappointed. And I wish I never have to go back to this place of business, but unfortunately I have to remove these drains. I regret ever going to this office, and I regret saving and spending my hard earned money of $8,000 for this procedure. No one should ever be treated like this. And I see the OBVIOUS truth... I can not speak for anyone else, but I do know that he doesn't not care about me being his patient. I was nothing but a paycheck... and I was a part of an automotive chain line of women going in and out.
I am deeply hurt, but as hurt as I am...I would never advise anyone to not go where their heart desires. But if you decide to go here, please be carful, and make sure you don't have to depend on them for after care. I am in tears writing this because I worked so hard, and saved so hard, and lost all this weight for this. I have been on their waiting list for 2 years. I researched for countless hours. I've seen other girls complained about his after care...but I did not listen because I honestly thought they were trying to bring him down because of his success.
My previous Dr, Cortez and his staff never ever made me feel this way. And even after surgery he called me to make sure I got home safe and so did his staff. I never received a phone call nor a text message from Dr Miami's staff unless I texted them first. The only contact they made with me was to send over a medical assistant to bathe me and take pictures; and that was the day after surgery. I haven't heard from them, haven't gotten an email ever since.
My eyes are swollen from crying so I'm going to go...but ladies please carefully choose your Surgeons. And listen to other patients please, because they might just be telling the truth...
