In the multi-billion dollar world of plastic surgery, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but for some patients, the quest for ultimate perfection ends in disastrous results. In their debut season, Doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif, offered viewers a peak into some of their most difficult operations, reversing the effects of horrendous plastic surgeries. The series captivated audiences in its premiere run on E! as most people only see the benefits of good surgery and are not exposed to the other side. The doctors were tasked with restoring, fixing and adjusting what appeared to be unfixable, botched procedures.
Season one of "Botched" covered over 20+ surgeries/procedures ranging from crippling nose jobs to the more bizarre cases like altering a "uniboob" and horrendous tummy tucks from Tijuana to counseling a man who spent over $100,000 to look like Justin Bieber. Viewers followed patients every step of the way from the complex medical procedures to the intensive recovery process that resulted in the patient reveal. Thousands of people are submitting their stories for season two including a former professional athlete in need of facial work, a man who had a botched surgery to look more Asian and a woman who contracted a flesh eating disease during surgery in Mexico.
"The 'Botched' series has struck a chord with viewers who are drawn in by stories of excessive surgeries gone wrong." said Jeff Olde, EVP Programming and Development. "In the quest for perfection, we've tapped into a pop culture zeitgeist, sharing cautionary tales, positive outcomes and true transformations. We're glad our audience has responded to these very personal stories."
"Botched" is an Evolution Media production, with Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart and Alex Baskin serving as Executive Producers and Robert Carroll as Co-Executive Producer.
