Plot Synopsis

In this one-hour reality series, two plastic surgeons, Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif, work with victims of ill-fated cosmetic work and attempt to undo and fix their results. From frightening facelifts, shockingly bad boob enhancements and reductions and hideous nose jobs to devastating tummy tucks and lopsided butt lifts, Doctors Dubrow and Nassif try to turn tragedy into triumph, using their training, education, and sometimes even imagination. BOTCHED chronicles patients' ill-fated cosmetic work, documents their back-stories to get a sense of their pre-corrective lives of shame and insecurity, goes inside their initial consultations with the doctors, documents their corrective surgeries, peers into their post-operative follow-ups, and then reveals their new and corrected bodies. In the series premiere, both doctors team up to fix some of California's worst surgical results when they set their sights and scalpels on: Alicia, a woman suffering from what's known as a uni-boob; Michelle, an actress who's had six surgeries in search of the perfect nose; and Justin Jedlica, often called the Human Doll, because he has gone under the knife more than 100 times in order to perfect his unique physique. In subsequent episodes, the docs help these patients: Janice Dickinson, who gets her breasts (with 30-year-old implants) restored to a more natural look; Kimber James, a transgender adult film star who's undergone 24 plastic surgeries; Renee, an internet sensation after posting a shocking video of her butt implants flipping inside her body; Desiree, who got a tummy tuck in Mexico from a doctor using a block of ice to numb her abdomen; Toby Sheldon, who made headlines in recent years for spending over $100,000 to look like Justin Bieber; and many more people with botched body modifications. On Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, E! presented the first part of a two-part reunion special, which is hosted by Maria Menounos. In the "Reunion: Show & Tell," Doctors Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow reunite to look back at the success of the first season of BOTCHED, welcoming some of their most outrageous patients. Part one of the reunion features the self-proclaimed "world's first supermodel" Janice Dickinson, the human doll Justin Jedlica, triple L breast model Lacey Wildd, celebrity look-a-like Toby Sheldon and transsexual superstar Kimber James. Part two airing Monday, October 27 at 10pm ET/PT showcases Michelle Blackwell who received her 7thrhinoplasty on Season 1, transsexual cult performer Glamorous Monique, Tijuana tummy tuck disaster Desiree White and Alicia Jenkins who was suffering from a life-ruining uniboob. BOTCHED returned for its second season on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on E!, with Drs. Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow challenged to work with everyone from famous TV, sports and music stars to disfigured burn victims who have experienced the pain and emotional stress of surgeries gone wrong. In the season premiere, "I Love New Work," reality star Tiffany 'New York' Pollard hopes the doctors can fix her botched boobs, Paul reconstructs a severely burned chin, and the doctors meet a transgender woman whose face was pumped with cement. Subsequent episodes feature patients like Guillermo Eiland of Mo' Thugs, Nicole Eggert from BAYWATCH, and Jordan James Parke, who reportedly spent $150,000 to look like Kim Kardashian. On Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, E! debuted the Season 2 fall premiere of BOTCHED, as Drs. Dubrow and Nassif continue to put their surgical skills to the test while facing a new round of patients with traumatic plastic surgery experiences -- from identical twins seeking to look more alike through revisions to their rhinoplasties and breast augmentations, to life-saving discoveries as the doctors attempt to fix injuries from a near-fatal accident. In the mid-season premiere, "Double Trouble," Paul follows a hunch and orders more tests for a woman with a severely botched nose and discovers shocking news. The doctors work in tandem to get two "botched bunnies" back in centerfold shape. On Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, E! premiered the third season of BOTCHED, featuring Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif taking on all-new surgical cases and patients with inspiring stories. In the season premiere, fan favorite Rajee, who unknowingly had her face injected with cement by someone who was not a licensed medical professional, is back in the consult room as the doctors construct a complex plan in an attempt to fix her severely disfigured face. Meanwhile, Dr. Dubrow performs surgery on a woman whose stargazing nipples are too high and an "out-of-this world" patient requests that the doctors make him look like an alien. Later in the season, Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nassif are once again tasked with fixing the seemingly unfixable. From a transformation for a woman whose nose is stuck at a "7 o'clock" angle, to an earlobe reconstruction for a woman whose lobes have been stretched to almost two inches, the doctors will tackle even more obscure and complicated surgeries than ever before. The doctors also receive a visit from former professional wrestler, Chyna, who enlists their help to fix her botched breasts.
On Sunday, June 18, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, E! debuted the mid-season premiere of BOTCHED, with Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif taking on a new night and ever more complex procedures. In the mid-season premiere, "The Boob Fountain of Youth," a female impersonator seeks Dr. Dubrow's expertise to rejuvenate old breast implants, Dr. Nassif tackles a severe nose deformity and both doctors meet a woman who has the biggest breasts in Europe and wants to enhance her backside to match. Coming up later this season on "Botched," the doctors meet a house husband with a plus-sized pout who hopes to supersize it; Dr. Dubrow meets a woman who has suffered nine failed breast augmentations and hopes he can help her continue pursuing her dream of being the world's first paraplegic fitness model; Dr. Nassif attempts to help a man with three eyebrows and after being previously turned down by the doctors, Rodrigo Alves, international plastic surgery fanatic, returns once again seeking the doctors' help after undergoing three nasal surgeries in less than a year.
