A woman’s breast tissues started to rot and smell like dying flesh after a botched breast reduction surgery.
On Monday night’s episode of the series Botched, the woman, named Esmeralda, describes how she was left with a “hole” in each of her breasts after her doctor spent six months cutting out the decaying flesh.
Dr. Terry Dubrow said:
“I’ve seen a lot of breast reductions, and I’ve seen a lot of complications from them, but this is the worst complication from a breast reduction I have ever seen,”
Speaking with plastic surgeon Dr. Dubrow and his partner Dr. Paul Nassif, Esmeralda explains how she decided to have a breast reduction at the age of 18 because her DDD breasts were causing her back pain.
Esmeralda says her doctor assured her that they could fix it, and each time she saw him, he would cut deeper and deeper into her flesh to remove the dead skin.
Dr. Dubrow was appalled by her first doctor’s approach, adding that he had wasted precious time.
Fortunately, she was rushed to the hospital, where she was forced to have multiple operations to save her life and rectify her botched surgery.
