Botched is a reality television show that debuted on E! on June 24, 2014. The show is currently in its seventh season and stars two plastic surgeons, Terry J. Dubrow and Paul Nassif, who specialize in corrective and revisionary plastic surgery. Their goal is to help those who have suffered from poorly executed cosmetic procedures, either due to a lack of skill, poor decision making or simply bad luck. In each episode, the surgeons see patients who have had botched procedures and try to help them get their lives back on track.

The show is a combination of heart wrenching stories and comedic relief. The patients who come to the surgeons for help are often distressed, embarrassed and in extreme pain, both physically and emotionally. Many of them have been ostracized by society and have lost all confidence in themselves. The surgeons are very empathetic and are able to connect with their patients on a personal level. Their goal is not just to fix the physical damage done by the botched procedures, but to also help the patients regain their self-esteem and confidence.

Most of the patients on the show come to the surgeons for help after having undergone a series of futile surgeries elsewhere. They often have unrealistic expectations, which were not met by their previous doctors. Terry and Paul have to manage their expectations whilst still taking into account their wishes. Sometimes, the patients are in such a bad shape that the surgeons have to turn them away, or refer them to a different medical professional.

The show has received criticism for promoting plastic surgery as a solution to all problems. However, both the show and the surgeons make it clear that plastic surgery is a last resort, and that the core value of the procedures is to surgically correct physical conditions that have impacted a patient’s life adversely. Not every person who appears on the show is going under the knife; patients are only referred to surgeries if necessary.

The show also highlights the dangers of unqualified practitioners and the importance of choosing medical practitioners wisely. It provides an educational platform that informs the public about the risks and complications that can occur when unqualified or unlicensed practitioners perform invasive procedures such as buttock injections or facial fillers.

Botched covers a wide range of topics within the realm of plastic surgery. For example, the show has highlighted the dangers of traveling for surgery, the risks of using unlicensed practitioners, and the complications of injecting industrial grade silicone into one’s body. The show also covers less-severe cases such as correcting a previous surgery that didn’t go as planned, or softening years-old scars.

Overall, Botched is an informative and entertaining show that has sparked a lot of conversation about plastic surgery. It provides a glimpse of the intricacies associated with the craft of plastic surgery, and serves as a valuable source of knowledge on the perils of the industry. The show also highlights how our society’s obsession with image can lead people to go to dangerous lengths to change their appearances, and how things can go wrong when they do not take the proper precautions. Terry J. Dubrow, Paul Nassif, and their team, show the professionalism and the passion required to be successful in their craft, leaving viewers appreciating the importance of qualified medical practitioners.

Botched is a series that is currently running and has 8 seasons (164 episodes). The series first aired on June 24, 2014.
