That’s when the Botched doctors came to her rescue and saved the day. Thanks to their intervention, Kaitlyn is now able to live without pain and discomfort.

Bye Bye Ballsack Foot

When Destiny first met the Botched doctors, she humorously referred to a growth on her foot as a “ball sack.” However, in reality, the growth was caused by a rare condition called lipoblastoma.

Fortunately, Dr. Dubrow successfully performed a procedure to significantly reduce the size of the growth, bringing relief to Destiny.

Beast of Burden

Thankfully, with the brilliant idea of using a tissue expander by Dr. Nassif, Jazmyn was finally able to bid farewell to her birthmark once and for all.

Past Life Complaints

17 years ago, Aia made the decision to undergo calf implant surgery after a profound experience of “past life immersion.” Being quite preoccupied with the appearance of her legs, Aia believed that her dissatisfaction stemmed from a “subconscious memory” of her past life as a German soldier. According to her, she had encountered an explosion near her legs on the battlefield.

However, the outcome of her calf implants led to a host of present-day problems. Aia lamented, stating, “All I wanted was larger calves, and now I have disfigured, purplish legs that seem like they belong to someone else.” To alleviate her discomfort, she resorted to taping her legs to compress them. Additionally, she disclosed experiencing a burning sensation in her right leg. Dr. Dubrow identified that Aia’s implant had become “twisted” and was causing damage to her nerves. Consequently, both implants were removed, allowing Aia to regain her natural leg appearance once more.

A “Giant” Chin

Yazmin had grown tired of her “uneven and bumpy” chin, which she often referred to as her “giant” chin. When she was 14 years old, she underwent surgery to reconstruct her chin using fat taken from her stomach due to an accident. However, Yazmin continued to feel self-conscious about the appearance of the lower half of her face for many years.

To address her concerns, Dr. Nassif performed a procedure to tighten the skin around her chin, resulting in smoother contours. Additionally, he lifted the tissue to correct Yazmin’s slightly drooping mouth. Once again, it proved to be another successful transformation for the skilled botched doctor!

Reconstruction Rescue

It was soon discovered by Dr. Dubrow that Shannah still had residual breast tissue, putting her at risk of developing breast cancer.

Thankfully, Dr. Dubrow took prompt action and removed all of the remaining breast tissue. This allowed Shannah to finally feel at ease, knowing that she was no longer at risk. With her new and improved implants, she could move forward with confidence.

“Hot Mess” Nose

Real estate agent Christy fell victim to what she called “the worst example of retail medicine” when she underwent a two-for-one rhinoplasty procedure. Her previous doctor blamed her “defective” cartilage for the outcome, but Dr. Nassif was determined to fix her slanted nose. However, during the surgery, there was a slight surprise: Dr. Nassif encountered unexpected alcohol-related ooze due to Christy’s alcohol consumption prior to the procedure. After her nose job, Christy jokingly remarked, “This probably won’t be the last time a White Claw gets me in trouble,” but she expressed her satisfaction, saying, “I finally see what I feel like should have been on my face my entire life.” Consider her surgery a resounding success!

Coral Reef Relief

I am starting to love myself more.”
