GONE WRONG!!! HORRIBLY WRONG!!
TUMMY TUCK GONE WRONG!!
Let's say that my name is Sally James reasons for false name is I plan on taking this farther. I will not give up until Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic Clinic is shut down for disfiguring my body!!!
I had a Tummy Tuck done about 10 months ago done by Dr. Elisa Stein MD at Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic Clinic. As soon as I had the surgery the results are not what Dr. Elisa Stein had promised me. She completely disfigured my stomach. She has caused my stomach to look disfigured and abnormal. I have suffered excruciating pain since my Abdominoplasty I’m still not completely healed and don’t know if I ever will be. I have some open soars that drain daily and I have to now live with this discomfort and pain.
I went to Dr. Elisa Stein to help me get my body back and be able to wear any bikini I wished and undergarments without being self conscious, not to destroy me forever. I can’t where a bikini or any undergarments comfortably due to the abnormally large unhealed scar, much higher than ever expected or told (3 inches) and a new belly button about 2 inches below my breasts! And very large dog ears on both sides of my scar. I have had to consult with other doctors who say they might be able to re do the Abdominoplasty once I heel from the disaster Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic clinic has caused me. This is so unfair, I spent thousands of dollars on this, and the recovery time continues still to this day, and now I need to pay more money to get this fixed.
On the website it says
“The results Your abdominoplasty procedure will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight. The final results may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete. Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident about your new slimmer profile.”
THIS STATEMENT WAS COMPLETELY FALSE!! I SHOULD BE REBURIED FOR NOT ONLY THE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS SPENT TO DO THE SURGERY BUT COMPASSIONATE ME FOR TIME MISSED FROM WORK AND PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT I HAVE ENDURED!
Being a Board certified plastic surgeon does not MEAN ANYTHING TODAY!! Yes there was no guarantee on my surgery but how I was treated after by Dr. Elisa Stein and the staff at Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic clinic was more than unprofessional.
I JUST WANT TO WARN PEOPLE ABOUT DR. ELISA STEIN& HEALING WATERS SPA & COSMETIC CLINIC!!
Very nice staff/ atmosphere but after my waxing they didn't put anything on to soothe my skin like aloe..My skin was still sticky after wax!
Above all - a life changing experience! – More than just an above par, excellent results and services, to me healing waters and the services i did (facial, massage, laser hair, smart lipo and smart lipo HD) provided me with an above expected experiences at each visit and services. Above all, smart lipo was a life changing experience and how I first came to healing waters for. I have always been very self-conscious and insecure about my stomach/ belly area. From a size 12 to a size 4, my body type as well as the weight gain and loss left a lot of fat in the stomach area that is hard to go away. I did the smart lipo focusing mostly in the lower region of my stomach. Happy with the results, i came back for the HD procedure focusing more on all areas. The results are priceless compared to my comfort, self-assurance and happiness satisfactory levels I have today after the procedures. The facial and massage were complimentary services from the smart lipo, being the facial, the best one i have done in many years. The laser hair removal, which im doing in the lower legs, is so far proven to be very efficient each session. The healing waters staff are extremely friendly, professional, caring, attentive.. not to mention patient. During my first smart lipo procedure I was probably torturing the staff (especially Louisha and Dr. Miller) more than they thought they were doing to me. Dr. Miller was very caring, patient as well as knowledgeable. I was expecting to leave his office fully marked all over my body with areas suggested to work on after the first consultation. Instead he was reasonable and suggested only a few areas which indeed needed work and is where i did the surgery. It is not a very painful procedure but is local anesthesia, which is what i like about it - full anesthesia lipo are VERY dangerous. I have low tolerance for pain, but was able to go through it twice and would happily do it again. I advise to anyone who will do this procedure to focus on the massages after, especially lymphatic drainage massage. It is CRUCIAL for a proper healing. I also advise wearing the body suit for as long as you can and make sure it doesnt "fold" in the stomach area, since is sensitive and soft, so can stay that shape if you dont watch out. For those who actually work out and have muscles in the stomach, the HD can help see abs definition. For me it helped see a nicer shape overall.
Awesome Experience! – Dr. Miller is absolutely the best! He is so patient and caring, and took so much time to answer all my questions. I'm one month out and I love my results!
The staff is second to none, and everyone is so kind and helpful. Kirsten has done my Botox and Refirme treatments, and is SO sweet and gentle. I have had botox treatments before that felt like they were stabbing my face, but with Kirsten I barely even knew she had started!
Nice spa, needs more space – I love going to Healing Waters - every service I have ever received there has been wonderful! The girls are always so friendly, and they have a lot of nice extra touches to make your visit special. The only thing that gets annoying is the lack of parking (because they are right near PF Changs and Starbucks, so everyone takes the spots). Also, the inside of the spa is short on space. When I have facials done, the room is so small!!
Great atmosphere and Cheerful staff – I was at Healing Waters for a facial several times and all the estheticians have been super. They really know their stuff and have given me great tips for my home skin care routine. I am totally hooked on the PureMD products, I've always had problem skin and am amazed at how well it works.
I also had a consult with a nurse about botox and was impressed at how knowledgeable she was and her quickness with my questions. I can't wait to book an appointment!
My favorite Birthday Gift to Me from Me – This staff at Healing Waters helped me through 2 VERY uncomfortable pregnancies. I am happy to say that I have spent each birthday for the last 4 years at Healing Waters. I can not wait untl my next spa date :-).
My personal resort, my home away from home! – I recently visited a friend in Raleigh & she scheduled a girls day at the spa. I was a little reluctant as my last day at the spa with a group of friends was a complete disaster, scheduling conflicts...& we just didn't get to spend time together in between sessions. But to my surprise, the staff at Healing Waters coordinated our services to allow us time to really relax in the lounge together in between as well as before & after. && The services.... although a little pricey, they were completely worth it! I am now hooked on the Pure MD product line & my clarisonic brush! Plus, I received an amazing massage. I'm looking forward to returning to Raleigh in the NEAR future & having another day out with the girls. Thanks to the staff in making it my home away from home!
Excellent Facial! – I had my first facial at Healing Waters with April. The spa itself is wonderful- a clean, efficient locker room, amazing waiting area (aka the Relaxation Room) stocked with water, teas, snacks, and a fire in the fireplace. April was so friendly, and thoroughly explained the treatment and what to expect. I would highly reccomend this spa to anyone- you will not be disappointed!
