I went to Strax Rejuvenation in September of 2010 to see Dr. Osak Omulepu one of the Plastic Surgeon there. He was to correct a breast surgery I had before. The correction he did was terrible and horrible. He made one napple smaller then the other and one of my breast is flatter then the other and the scars hurt till this day so bad. My breast looks so deformed. I did go back to him because one of my breast was hurting so bad. There was a big not made from the thread he made that skin grow over the thread and the pain was so unbearable. I would like you to close this terrible place down and investigate this place, so that one other women would go through this like I have. Unfortunitely, this place does not have Insurance to sue them. Please help me resolve this terrible and horrible situation for me and others.

    This so called Plastic Surgery option is no more than a fast paced butcher shop. They take their money and they run with it but first they ensure you sign a bunch of forms whereby you can never sue them for malpractice. It is a shame that the State of Florida has not revoked their license. STRAX REJUVENATION's staff member should be all serving long term jail sentences.

    I agree with you 100%, I had a upper eye lift and the doctor took to much skin and now I can not sleep with tearing all night long and with pain, since I can not close my eyes.fully They gave me three options, 1. skin graph on top of my eyes. 2. Pick up the sides of my eyes to look like I was chinese and that would change my look. 3. Live with it. Those are the three options. This place is a butcher shop, they don't even have malpractic insurance so you can not sue. I guess they can do anything to a person and get away with it. This place need to be investigated and the State of Florida needs to revoke their license. This is a night mare for me to live with this terrible situation. If everyone who had a terrible experience with Strax Rejuvation please submitt your complaint so that they can close this butcher shop down. The first complaint on this page was my daughter's breast surgery a young girl that has to live with this horrible surgery. Run as fast as you can if you ever step a foot at this place. It maybe less money but you get what you pay for.

    The doctors don't carry insurance but can we still sue them? What about suing the company as a whole? They have a lot of assets to go after.

    What they did to me cannot ever be made up to me with no amount of money. The very first rhinoplasty is the best time to get it right. After that, one will never get the optimal result that one was capable of achieving. And I already had two rhinoplasties by Strax. So where does that leave me? I wanted a nose job for sooooo loooong and they ruined it for me. Even when I get it fixed, that optimal result will never be achieved. This is just damage control now.

    A $4, 000 rhinoplasty turned to be a $13.000 job to fix it. I got this estimate from another doctor. And next time I am going to competent doctor and price will be the last thing considered.

    So all I want is my $4, 000 plus the $13, 000 to get my nose fixed. That is the bare minimum. I think they owe me at least that much.

    I want to get my money back. I want justice. Please help.

    I agree with you 100% my daughter had her breast done and still this day she is in so much pain and let us not talk about the scaring. I feel so bad for her, since she is a young woman and every day she has to look at these terrible scares.

    All we want is justice and her money back. I also had work done as stated on top about my upper eye lids. I want my money back as well, since now I would have to get another surgery done to correct their stupid mistake.

    Can you please tell me how to go about sueing them since they do not have any malpractice insurance- Do we sue the doctor, I would think he would have malpractice insurance to cover his ###.
    By the way serveral people have died in this butcher place, please close this place down.

    First, I would like to say I am so sorry you had to go through this terrible situation. I also have concerns about a surgery I had in Dec 2010. I went in for my breast. My major concerns were the breast and nipple on the left one was bigger than the other. I went to multiple doctors prior to going to Strax. Everyone wanted to charge me an arm and leg. When I went to Strax, the doctor I spoke with gave me confidence that he could fix the issue and for much less. I stated what all the other doctors had told me to do. He stated that he would not suggest those because once the implants were in there it would fix itself. Well needless to say... I went in as an A/B and now I have the exact same problem just as D/DD size. I have been searching how to go about this situation but after reading all the reviews, it really seems like that is no solution. If anyone finds a way to handle these issues please let me know. I guess, unless you a dead person on their table no one really wants to hear about your case. Best of luck to you all.

    Plastic surgery is such a risk and so few people pay attention to the details. 1. All surgeons, plastic or otherwise have you "sign your life away" it is a general practice. 2. Bodies respond differently, especially breast! 3. Many people have expectations that may be unrealistic and often have a period of depression after surgery. Strax has many doctors and they are good doctors. When you go to a "one - man" office they have fewer surgeries therefore fewer complaints. Make no mistake surgeons who operate more are more skilled bottom line!

    I had tummy tuck done, a lipo and a breast reduction by three different doctors at Strax. None of these surgeries came out right. Terrible scars, uneven breasts, the tummy tuck turned out so bad that I'm trying to find a reconstruction doctor to fix it. I would not recommend anyone to go to Strax. I am proof, and two of these doctors mentioned above were my doctors and the one who did my tummy tuck moved to Boston, I heard. Every time I went back to complain, I was told that nothing was wrong and my body looks fine. They really make you feel like you're crazy, their way to make you go away, like the problem is in your head. When it came to the time to pay them, they make you sign the contracts fast and schedule your for your pre-op as fast as possible. I'm an old patient of Strax since 2006 and I finally realize that these people are butcher and don't really care about their clients. PLEASE BEWARE!

    I am also a prior patient of Strax from August 2009. I went to see several different doctors that said I could not achieve the results I was looking for without major scarring. I wanted a lift and implants after losing over 100pounds naturally and i'm young, only 24. Im also a fitness competitor and wanted to look great on stagenext to all the girls, who already had theirs done. I went in to see Dr. Nees, not knowing his past in Washington State. My recovery was painful but was ok, I do have some major scarring and i'm not happy with how he reshaped my nipples. You would expect a "Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with over 35 years of experience" to be highly skilled and know how to draw a perfect circle of a nipple and able to leave "minor scarring" as he promised. After my surgery, about 1 month later, a dissolvable stitch was stuck in my right breast and he had to remove it with tweezers, hurt like hell, and the doctor had NO COMPASSION what so ever in my situation. Over 2 years later, that same place on my right breast, now has a hole and is leaking of blood and puss, and looks absolutely hideous. I moved across the state and had to drive down to see the doctor today. I had to wait over 1 hour for him to come in the room, said "he only has 5 minutes to see me", that "the hole in my breast is not his problem", and to "simply take antibiotics and it should go away, its completely normal for this to ocur." He acted wit such unprofessionalism, I have never experienced anything like this in my entire life. I now have to go see a "Breast Specialist" to figure out what is exactly wrong, because according to hime, "its completely normal after 2 years to experience a leaking hole in my breast. I drove 3 hours to see this Doctor and he saw me for no more than 5 minutes and this isn't his fault? I decided to look up his history thoroughly and did research. Over 445 complaints against him for unprofessionalism and sexual assualt in Washington State, they revoked his Plastic Surgeon License in Washington State, since 1996 he has had so many complaints, that I couldn't print all of them out and they are so lengthy. I pray to God, that this Butcher shop gets closed down, and let the past 3 patients that died this year in their hands and at their care be a witness and proof, that they simply do not value any one of their patients. PLEASE PLEASE I beg you to review this horrible ran establishment that is only money hungry and will leave you so unsatisfied, you wouldve wished you had paid an extra few grand for better service with employees and physicians filled with compassion, care, and understanding.

    I'm sorry you guys had bad experience. I have been to Strax twice already for two different procedures, breast augmentation with saline, and a brazilian butt lift ! And I love my results! My scars are minimal if not even noticeable and I am a tan skinned 24 yr.o ld woman. my Dr was Dr. Osaka omulepu, he did both of my procedures! You have to take into consideration that not all expectations are realistic, I was hoping for my booty to be bigger, but I have to take into consideration that I didn't have that much fat, but I did cry after my procedure and it was a lot more mental pain than physical for me. Every person is different. I can Imagine a person who doesn't take care of them selves as much as the next person or doesn't take pain as well as the next person is going to have different experiences. I consider myself a very strong woman who can handle pain very well, and I remember telling myself as soon as I got out of the recovery room following my surgery, " I can't imagine somebody who doesn't take pain very well going through with this!, because i feel like crap! " and my face was all puffy!! ... but to get back on track, Im sorry to those who have had horrible results, I really do feel for you, plastic surgery is a risky thing to get into, and every time you are taking a risk, I knew it when I was only paying 3 g's for my breast aug. and a yr later 5 g's cash for a BBL!!! But it's a risk I took. and I thank God I am ok.

    HORRIBLE! RESULT HERE, wife's breast is now scarred & is now a TURN-OFF from (2) corrective surgeries-2nd surgery was to replace large implant with the size that she had requested on 1st surgery(he placed a bigger size than the size requested without consent)
    On the 2nd surgery i could see her muscle through a hole in her sutures & it could not heal as the hole was too big also it was becoming infected.)

    Her Nose is WEAKENED from (2) corrective surgeries by this MADMAN & might go out of position if accidently impacted (she's always says "my nose, my nose..be careful")
    Thank god for her personality!

    On 3 March 2015 I went to Strax for the pre-op session. The first thing they prepped me for drawing my blood. They had all of the Oreo items including the injections on a small table without a paper covering. Then the tech asked me to undress to do the ekg. I had misgivings because they have a window with the blinds half way up. I asked the tech to close the blinds she said that
    No one is going to be staring. Then after that, they were about to have me lie on a plain black ugly chair. Then I asked the girl examining me 'arn't you going to put a cover on it?' They said the they don't have any. So what does the tech do? She placed a pink half garment top on it. I had to open it up and placed it myself. Anyway, I had the ekg. Then they asked to stand up so that they could take pictures of my body. i told them that I wanted the doctor to concentrate mainly on my abdomen; I was told that I would be allotted 4 litres of fat removal. Going forward, I had contacted Marcus the office coordinator and told him what transpired about the sanitary examining. He assured me that the conditions with preop and the operating room will not be like this. Anyway, I get to the office or 'medical center' at 7:22 am. The surgery was scheduled for 7:30am I went into the preop room. I was told to take off my clothes. Then the front desk nurse or assistant gives me a medicine stained blanket to cover up with. Dissapointed, I asked her for another one. She said that 'they are all like that.' After that a nurse came in the room, I asked her for another blanked, she said the same thing. Then the previous nurse came by and said that I am a pain in the neck. Finally the Dr Pane came in (1hr 45 min late). No apology. Then he marks me up with a ball-point pen on where I want the fat removal done. To my dismay, Dr. Pane took out only 1.8 liters of fluid - 2.25 lbs! I am 180 lbs. keep in mind that I realise that this is not for weight loss but I was assured 4 litres of fat removal. Later when I got home I had contacted him to ask how many litres was taken out with a bad attitude and condescending way. The next morning, I had called to speak with Dr. Pane about having extreme pain and that the prescriptions I received are very expensive. The doctor was very rudely said to me that they are not expensive the tylen I could get that over the counter and the percesad I could get via generic. Then I had asked the doctor about the minimum litres 1.8 that he took out of me at 180 lbs. He said that Im calling him 10 hrs later to ask him that? And that this line is for emergencies only. No apology and extremely rude! I told him that I called about me being in pain and that that was my second question presented to him.

    OMG!!! Wish I would have seen these posts BEFORE my surgery!!! JUST had done yesterday 9/18/2015 and am in SO much pain from lipo. The "money" grubbers (as I felt) lied to me, told me 2 days, back to work. I am a single mom. I have hand and finger prints SOOOOO bad that you can SEE the lines from fingers in the bruising. Read few other threads from people and now am terrified to remove garment. Cant imagine whats under there! here is just 1 pic of the finger bruising... So now reading will take 2 months to just feel better... I was literally thrown into wheel chair and loaded into car RIGHT when opened my eyes... NO instructions on what to do next or any one to ask questions too. Afer ANY surgery, I was UNDER, thought I was supposed to wait like 45 minutes MINIMUM, until I was released... I was sleeping in car as My eyes were still closing and anastasia was still in affect. Here alone with 8 year old daughter and cant move... MISTAKE!!! I also feel all about the money and do NOT care about patients... I EVEN GOT A CONFIRMATION BY FKN TEXT... WHAT DR OFFICE DOES THAT... SMH

    Thanks to all of you for posting your results. I was going to make an appointment for a tummy tuck, but thanks to all of you, I changed my mind! Strax should be closed down for good and the doctors should be stripped of their license.
