Plastic surgery is not an inherently bad thing, especially when you take as many precautions as possible, but that does not mean terrible results cannot occur. Remember that video of a woman being able to flip her butt implants under her effing skin? Yeah, there are more stories like that, some of which are being told by E!’s new show Botched. People appearing on the show have had negative plastic surgery experiences that ended in frightening, malformed and undesirable results. They then are able to have corrective plastic surgery by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif in order to fix the damage from those previous surgeries.
Today, E! published several before and after photos of various patients who have been under Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nassif’s care. From crooked nose jobs to uneven breast implants and even vaginal damage, the program shows and tells just how messed up surgeries can get. The woman above had had six nose jobs before the doctors wound up doing a seventh and final one. Can you imagine going under the knife a half-dozen times before you wound up being happy with the results?
It is frightening that both celebrities and non-famous folks alike have experienced horrifying botched plastic surgeries. I always imagine that if I were to get a procedure, I would have to be able to pay a lot of money for a reputable doctor who has had numerous happy clients, but the fact of the matter is that even then, your results are still not guaranteed. Last year, Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio opened up about having a botched ear-pinning surgery back in Brazil. In March, a British woman was hospitalized after developing a horrible infection from a pre-wedding gastric bypass procedure.
If you want to have plastic surgery, obviously that is up to you and your choice alone. Some people like the look of big implants, and that is fine! That said, it’s important to be as safe as possible. While there are obviously some conditions under which people are more at risk than others, plastic surgery is still surgery–there are always risks and often consequences.
Tune in to see Botched on E! this Sunday at 10 PM!
