The doctors on E!'s Botched have seen the ultimate plastic surgery nightmares — and, billing themselves as plastic surgery superheroes, they're often tasked with fixing surgeries done in Mexico or by doctors who seemed to have gotten their medical licenses out of a Cracker Jack box. The horror stories from Botched include a woman with actual concrete in her face — yes, the same stuff from which sidewalks are made — a woman who had giant breast implants in her butt, and plenty of breast implants gone awry.
As cosmetic procedures become cheaper and more commonplace, the potential for a tragedy seems to have grown right along with the market. Many of the people on Botched seem to be addicted to plastic surgery, starting small with Botox or lip injections and moving to multiple implants — and then bigger implants. This mindset increases the risk and potential for things to go wrong... and then, too, there are just lots of bad doctors out there.
The people on Botched often go way beyond wanting Kylie Jenner's lips or Meghan Markle's nose. Some of these plastic surgeries are crimes — and the solutions that the doctors on Botched must implement are almost always risky.
Rajee Had Tire Sealant And Cement Injected Into Her Face
48-year-old Rajee Narinesingh came to Botched with actual cement in her face.
Rajee attended a black market "pumping party," where scurrilous characters offered low-price cosmetic injections of cheap substances as budget options to those unable or unwilling to pay the steep costs of medical injections. The so-called doctor used cement and tire sealant as fillers in Rajee's face — which not only started causing her extreme pain, but eventually also started pussing and burning and creating hard, rock-like nodes all over the affect areas.
Luckily, after the docs on Botched took her on, some of the rock-hard nodes were able to but cut out of her face, but there's still a risk the infections can come back, since everything is in her blood stream. Unfortunately, though, the injections in her breasts and butt have caused problems too dangerous to remove. In fact, the Botched doctors originally said that her face was too dangerous to fix, and spent months deliberating over whether they could try the risky series of procedures that, in the end, has helped Rajee regain some confidence in her look.
Dee Had Bowling Ball Boobs That Weighed 30 Pounds
Dee had her 30-pound breast implants removed by the docs on Botched after many doctors said it was impossible. In her former career as a call girl, she'd become addicted to getting larger and larger implants even at a time when the surgery was considered fairly risky and new. Her old-fashioned implants, called double lumens, were made of both silicone and saline, and one breast had completely deflated. Luckily, the 20-year-old implants were safely removed without permanently damaging the breast tissue, but even so, Dee admitted it was hard to part with them.
One Woman's Breasts Were So Mangled She Had To Duct Tape Them Together
Kailan got a boob job at age 19 and the surgery lasted all of 15 minutes, which is never a good sign. She was left with way too-high and odd-shaped breasts, and after that, she was forced to use duct tape to manipulate them into a "normal" shape. Yes, she duct taped her breast tissue to the implant... and then had to rip off the tape at night. So if you've ever whined about taking off a Band-Aid, just remember to be glad you're not Kailan.
Another reason to be glad you're not Kailan — she even duct taped her breasts with clear tape during sex. Luckily, the doctors were able to save Kailan's chest.
Just Say No To Implants In Your Butt
If anyone ever wants to put breast implants in your butt, just say no. Jana Stoner is proof that this is a very, very bad idea.
Jana had the DD implants put into her butt in Mexico, citing lower costs than doing a proper injections regimen in the US, as well as the fact that the doctors at the time made it seem doable and favorable. But it really hurt her career as well as her pride, and Jana went to the Botched doctors seeking help to get her twerk back. Words can't really do it justice, though — you've got to watch the video. As Dr. Dubrow says, "They have their own zip code."
