As far as I know, it is not possible to actually “fix” a drive with bad sectors (only the manufacturer can do that), it is only possible to do a so-called “cosmetic fix”, i.e. make it so that the drive reports a flawless SMART status even though it does have flaws, which are therefore hidden. If the purpose is to continue using the drive, it's pointless (because it is not fixed and it is no longer reliable). And if the purpose is to re-sell it, it's very bad practice... Ditto for the bad mofo who pretends to “fix” drives for a fee.

Kindly tell me that Cosmetic Fix will change the SMART status and any tool that can identify it to its real state?
