Drs. Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow have their work cut out for them in this week’s episode of “Botched.” The face a potentially unsolvable case that involves a mother of three and a nose job.
Gisela Juarez came to Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow as her last hope because several other doctors have called her situation “a reportable case.” So far the medical professionals that she has seen have been unable to diagnose the issue. The doctors are immediately concerned and grow nervous about what that could potentially mean.
Gisela described that she was not satisfied with the first nose job she had and described her issue with the first surgery.
“I still had the huge hump and so I got my second nose job done and I was happy,” she told the doctors. Fast forward eight years, and I start noticing that my nose started changing.”
“The tip of my nose started looking rounder and rounder,” Gisela explained. “The tip of my nose was hurting.”
Dr. Nassif seemed particularly troubled by the mother’s story and did not like that Gisela has suffering with no hope for a cure.
“When I hear about patient developing pain years after surgery,” Nassif said in this week’s teaser clip. “I’m thinking is it an infection, some inflammatory process, or is it a tumor underneath the skin.”
“No one likes to hear ‘I don’t know,’ or ‘You may have a reportable case,’ because it potentially means that you have an undiagnosable or even untreatable condition,” Dr. Dubrow told the cameras.
Gisela explained that she has three wonderful little girls and she started to tear up at the consultation with Nassif and Dubrow.
“I feel like I want to be okay,” she said. “I have three daughters, the youngest one is 7-months-old and I want to be healthy for them.”
The doctors empathized with the woman and stated that her condition is not something they see every day.
“The thought of having a tumor on the tip of my nose…” Gisela told the confessional camera, “I don’t want to have to think that.”
The new episode of “Botched” airs Monday at 10 p.m. on E!
Last week, the “Botched” crew helped Tiffany “New York” Pollard with an illness that she believed was related to her breast implants.
“I’ve been getting sick, diarrhea every morning like clockwork,” “New York” said during her consultation with the experts.
The star explained that her friend had her implants removed and all her problems went away.
“There’s a Facebook group of, I think, 40,000 women who have come together complaining of all of these symptoms,” the Dr. said when he identified her issues as Breast Implant Illness (BII).
“If enough people have it, it’s a real thing.” “When you put a foreign body into a human,” Dr. Dubrow continued, “it can have a lot of reactions to it and you can a lot of the kinds of things that we are seeing in Tiffany.”
Whether the issues are too big or too small the doctors really are helping people and changing the lives of their patients and their patient’s families.
