WASHINGTON, August 6, 2014 – We can all take a deep breath now as Botched, the reality show that is nothing short of a genuflect to the stupidity of vanity, returns for a second season. Show premise is that people have horrific plastic surgery procedures done to them giving them the ability to do things flip their butt implants around (why would you get butt implants to begin with?) and end up looking from odd to monstrous.
Doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif return for Season 2 to restore, fix, and adjust botched plastic surgery procedures. Show viewers watch the doctor’s repair horrific breast implants, face lifts, silicon implants and other oddities caused by doctors with patients willing to go under the knife, all too often for vanity.
What is the truly most amazing part of this show is how vain the patients can be, and how patient the doctors are. One has to wonder how often they want to scream “what the heck were you thinking?”
The first season of Botched showed the results of 20 surgeries, ranging from nose jobs to altering a “uniboob.” The network says that thousands of people have submitted their stories for the second season, including a former professional athlete in need of facial work, and a woman who contracted a flesh eating disease during surgery in Mexico.
