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.
The first season of Botched featured more than 20 surgeries, ranging from nose jobs to altering a “uniboob,” and counseling a man who spent more than $100,000 in an effort to look like Justin Bieber. The network says thousands of people have submitted their stories for the second season, including a former professional athlete in need of facial work, and a woman who contracted a flesh eating disease during surgery in Mexico.
“In the quest for perfection, we’ve tapped into a pop culture zeitgeist, sharing cautionary tales, positive outcomes and true transformations, network EVP Jeff Olde said in today’s news.
Botched is an Evolution Media production, with Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart and Alex Baskin serving as EP’s and Robert Carroll as co-EP.
