E! ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES "BOTCHED" SHOWCASING THE RISKY QUEST TO CORRECT EXTREME PLASTIC SURGERY GONE WRONG

World Renowned Plastic Surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif Set to Fix the Unfixable When "Botched" Premieres Summer/Fall 2014 on E!

Los Angeles -December 5, 2013 - In a world where our culture is obsessed with youth and beauty, some people revert to plastic surgery to achieve a certain look and turn back the hands of time. With weekly magazine covers catering to a public thirsty for perfection, some can take that quest to the extreme and the results of too much plastic surgery can be disastrous. For the first time on television, the ugly side of beauty will be put under a microscope, revealing the fascination surrounding beauty and plastic surgery...the results will shock you. In this new eight episode, one-hour series, highly accomplished plastic surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif will work with these victims of ill-fated cosmetic work to attempt to undo and fix their results.

In each standalone episode, the doctors will perform two surgeries, but could work with multiple patients who desperately need their help turning the nightmares of their previous plastic surgeries into success stories where they look and feel beautiful once again. With physical issues ranging from harrowing to just plain odd, each patient has a unique personal story that will be told as they prepare to embark on the emotional and physical journey of a lifetime. Viewers will follow each patient every step of the way from the complex medical procedures to the intensive recovery process that will result in the ultimate reveal at the end of each episode. "Botched" premieres summer/fall 2014 only on E!

"In a culture fixated on looks, I think we are equally fascinated by stories of both good and terrible plastic surgery," said Jeff Olde, EVP, Programming & Development. "As more and more people endure multiple procedures for that perfect look, all too often the outcome can be a nightmare. But with the help of two of the best doctors in the field, 'Botched' will offer them a second chance at beauty. "

From frightening facelifts, shockingly bad boob and hideous nose jobs, to devastating tummy tucks and lopsided butt lifts, Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nassif will work their medical magic trying to turn tragedy into triumph. Leaders in their field, Dubrow and Nassif will use their training, education and sometimes even imagination as they set out to turn back the clock and miraculously change lives. Throughout the series, we'll see the patients' back-stories and follow all stages of their journey to recovery and get a sense of their pre-corrective lives of shame and insecurity. Each patient will undergo initial consultations with Doctors Dubrow and Nassif and throughout each episode viewers will witness their surgeries, peer into their post-operative follow-ups, and then see the big reveal of their new and corrected bodies.

Born and raised in Los Angeles California, Dr.Terry Dubrow's record of academic achievement spans both coasts. After obtaining degrees in medical sciences from both Yale University and the UCLA School of Medicine he went on to complete a residency in general surgery and was chief resident in surgery at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. During this period, he devoted over seven years to research in plastic and reconstructive surgery. He ultimately completed a plastic and reconstructive fellowship at the UCLA Medical Center widely regarded as one of the top in the world. His surgical scope has included everything from cosmetic surgery, major trauma, chest and abdominal cancer removal, vascular and cardiac surgery as well as congenital deformities such as cleft lip and palate, aesthetic, major burns and microvascular surgery. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Paul S. Nassif, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in obtaining natural results in both rhinoplasty and aging face rejuvenation. He has received international recognition by patients, peers, and the media for his innovative surgical techniques. Patients from around the world come to his Nassif MD Plastic Surgery center in Beverly Hills for help in correcting some of the most complicated cases. Dr. Nassif has authored numerous peer review articles and regularly lectures across the globe. He is a Director of a fellowship training program, accredited by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, where he teaches young facial plastic surgeons his pioneering procedures. He is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Southern California School of Medicine.

"Botched" premieres summer/fall 2014 on E! and is executive produced by Alex Baskin, Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart and Mark Herwick for Evolution Media.
