Botched Up Bodies TV programme reveals multiple cases of cosmetic surgery gone wrong

A TV program aired recently has illustrated some graphic examples of cosmetic surgery gone wrong where patients at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital have sought corrective surgery procedures.

‘Botched up Bodies’ on Channel 5 highlighted a series of instances of cosmetic surgery gone wrong and interviewed a number of distressed patients desperate to have their cosmetic catastrophes corrected.

The TV program claimed that of the 100,000 cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the UK last year, as many as five per cent ended with unsatisfactory results. Illustrations of cosmetic surgery gone wrong included butchered breasts, a deformed face, and unsightly scars.

Graphic examples on television of cosmetic surgery gone wrong and the repercussions it can cause has highlighted the pressing need to regulate the cosmetic surgery industry.

Amongst the examples of cosmetic surgery gone wrong highlighted in the programme was the harrowing experience of Claire, a cleaner from Essex who underwent breast reduction surgery. Claire, whose family paid for the cosmetic surgery procedure as a 40th birthday present, suffered from a complication that left her with rotten tissue and open wounds.

Claire noticed her right nipple had darkened and the surrounding area had turned blue. The TV program revealed Claire was suffering from necrosis which occurs when breast tissue begins to die after it is deprived from oxygen. The cosmetic surgery gone wrong left her with open wounds on both breasts and revealed Claire now awaits reconstructive surgery.

Also featured on the programme was Louise, a mother of five from Manchester who had surgery which had left her breasts lopsided and very tender. Suffering from capsular contraction as a result of cosmetic surgery gone wrong, Louise sought new breast implants after removal of scar tissue and her old breast implant.

The second part of ‘Botched Bodies’ tells the story of a man from Liverpool who experienced problems after undergoing a breast reduction procedure.
