On tonight’s Botched on E!, Dr. Terry Dubrow is going to be tested on his restorative surgical skills like never before.

In the clip above, Dr. Dubrow shows images to his partner Dr. Paul Nassif, who is shocked at the damage a woman suffered from the hands of a surgeon who never followed up on a suspected hematoma or infection after her second surgery.

Heather has come for a consult.

At first glance, there seems to be nothing wrong with her until the photos of her breasts are shown.

The doctors on this TV series tries to fix the work of hack doctors who make terrible mistakes, and conversely, patients who go to doctors demanding unrealistic results and ask for the trouble themselves.

Drs. Nassif and Dubrow are straight-shooters.

The two made a TV show that reveals how they tell people what they can expect and what complications can arise.

Then they try to unravel the damage done by medics who disfigure people who likely should have been turned away from surgery in the first place.

What is wrong with Heather’s breasts?

In the beginning, there was a positive result with Heather’s first breast implant surgery. She went for D sized breasts and liked the result very much.

After three children and then a husband who was critical of her breasts, she had them removed. Luckily her skin was resilient, and she said she bounced back pretty well.

It was a second surgery that went south.

In the consult, before Heather is in the room, Dr. Dubrow shows Heather’s images to Dr. Nassif. He says: “Let me show you something okay, so here’s Heather… look at this, isn’t that incredible?”

Dr. Nassif is horrified at the wrinkled and gathered skin of Heather’s left breast and says, “No, it’s incredibly messed up, what happened to the skin?”

They usher in Heather.

Dr. Dubrow says: “Heather, you have a very interesting situation. So how did you end up here?”

Heather lays out the timeline.

She says: “When I was 19, I had my first surgery and loved it…and then I got married I had three kids and my husband at the time really wasn’t a breast guy.”

She explained that she removed her breast implants. She says: “I bounced back pretty good, it was amazing.”

Then her personal life went sour.

She says: “Then I ended up divorced and decided I’m a breast person. My ex-husband wasn’t, but I was, so I did the surgery…so I woke up that day and felt, my left side always felt different.”

When asked about the swelling, she said it was “way more swollen, so I went back like four or five days later and said this really hurts. But [the doctor] said the swelling and everything — that was normal…”

Dr. Nassif says: “So she had a hematoma and the doctor just left it.”

Dr. Dubrow adds: “It sounds like. You had an emergency right away. you had something you need to be treated in surgery.”

He explains that not only is the surgery really important, but post-operative care is equally important because if you develop a complication, it can be solved very quickly.

If you miss the complication, and it goes on to develop into something very significant, it can be really hard to fix.

I had breast impons and a mini tummy tuck about 15 or so years ago that almost costing me my life. My right breast has a scar that is inside the breast so it pulls my nipple to one side it’s very odd. My mini tummy tuck was supposed to have been a tiny scar but instead it’s a scar that goes right across from one hip to another on top of that, I almost died because he the surgeon sold me up without completely burning the capillaries so instead after he sold me up and left the office with the anesthesia I ended up bleeding internally which he then was called back to open me up and without anesthesia I felt everything just so he can cauterize the cat capillaries that was not that was bleeding. I have been through so much in my life and have so much self-esteem issues if you could please help me with this you don’t know the gratitude I would have. I am a very loving and kind person who has been through the worst you can think of in life as a child and as a young adult and I am trying my best to put my life together I am a survivor and a big part of my feeling good about myself inside is being able to look in the mirror and I feel good about the outside. If you ever get to know me I promise he would think I’m one of the most kindest loving caring person you could ever meet. I desperately need your help in fixing my breast and maybe even my tummy tuck if possible but more of my breast if you can get back with me you don’t know how much of a difference you would make my life. True story!
