“Botched” has dealt with some crazy surgeries in the past, but this one probably takes the cake. In the Season 3 premiere, Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif take on a risky facial surgery of a transgender woman named Rajee Narinesingh.
Rajee has appeared on “Botched” once before, but she was ultimately turned down due to safety risks linked to her condition.
In 2005 Rajee had her cheeks, chin and lips injected with cement and tire sealant, resulting in lumps and disfigurement across her face. Due to the nature of her condition, doctors have been hesitant to perform corrective surgery because it would run the risk of leaving her face “a mess” according to Dubrow and Nassif.
After a careful and continuous steroid treatment, the “Botched” doctors were finally comfortable putting Rajee under the knife again.
Besides one slightly terrifying mishap, where Rajee starts to wake up during the middle of her surgery, the procedure to remove the remaining cement from her face is successful.
Other surgeries in the premiere included a man named Vinny who wanted to look like an alien, and a woman looking for a nipple lift. Obviously, their surgeries took a backseat to Rajee’s life changing treatment, and the reveal of her new and improved face was a pretty victorious moment for “Botched.”
“Botched” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on E!
