‘Botched’ Doctors On Plastic Surgery Nightmares: People ‘Die’
But there’s a season full of lot of victims of terrifyingly bad plastic surgery that the two top plastic surgery docs face and fix on Botched in upcoming episodes, and they tell us at the HollywoodLife.com podcast all about the scary scenarios.
We’re talking about people who’ve had concrete, glue and caulking agents injected into their faces, breasts and buttocks — and not always legally.
People “die from these things,” warns Dr. Terry Dubrow, who categorically says that no one should ever go to a “pumping party”! No one, ever!
‘Pumping parties’ are when a person with no medical training goes to someone’s home and injects substances into the guests’ various body parts in an attempt to get rid of wrinkles or make their breasts, buttocks or hips larger. Sounds insane, right? Letting a non-medical stranger inject you with god knows what?!
Unfortunately, people do it and doctors Nassif and Dubrow have dealt with the horrifying results on some of their episodes, not to mention that people can also get life-threatening flesh-eating bacterial infections from non-sterilized injections into their bodies.
‘Botched’ On E! — Drs. Dubrow And Nassif Fix Plastic Surgery Nightmares
But the second season of Botched also showcases extraordinarily difficult life-saving operations which most other plastic surgeons wouldn’t dare to do.
In one episode, Dr. Dubrow tells us that he couldn’t walk away from a woman who was disabled by the giant rock-hard implants in her breasts. “She had extraordinary large implants, which she kept replacing with bigger and bigger implants until they basically destroyed her breasts. They caused her skin to stretch out so much that they were rock hard. She was completely disabled by them and she couldn’t have a mammogram or any cancer surveillance done,” explains Dr. Dubrow.
The woman begged for help, and Dr. Nassif didn’t want to touch the case because there were so many dire potential complications. But Dr. Dubrow finally came up with a surgical solution that was a success, and the patient was able to literally get her life back.
Both doctors blame celebrity culture and social media for turning some people into ‘perfection’ addicts who undergo multiple plastic surgeries, with usually horrendous results. “They see celebrities sort of not aging on TV, and most celebrity work done now is very good,” says Dr. Dubrow.
Selfies are a big plastic surgery motivator, believes Dr. Nassif. “You see your face, your neck, you’re staring up close and you start Photoshopping, then you want to get Botox and a little filler — that’s how it starts,” he says.
But plastic surgery is no small thing to undergo, both point out. Complications on breast implant surgery on young women occur 27-35% of the time. That’s a lot. And with any surgery, “there is scarring,” whether it’s implants or a nose job. So if there is a problem, fixing it in subsequent surgeries just gets harder.
Good News For Plastic Surgery Hopefuls: The Brazilian Butt Lift Works
But then there’s the Brazilian but lift and thankfully, it’s actually good news, according to the Botched docs. Fat is transferred from your abdomen and thighs into your butt — and it survives, according to the pair: “It works!” Just don’t go to anybody but a trained plastic surgeon…or else!
