The hit plastic surgery show Botched is changing the lives of people left damaged from poor results by performing revision surgery. Transgender woman Nicole Sanders signed up for the show hoping to correct a bad boob job, but was left in worse condition than before. Producers decided to cut all of her segments at the last minute, adding further insult to her traumatic experience.
A similar story to many other surgery-obsessed patients, Nicole has spent a lot of money leaving behind the life as Jason Torres to transform into a woman. Rhinoplasty, breast implants, silicone injections, and a brow lift are only the beginning of her journey that has spanned over 10 years. At a very young age, Jason found himself drawn to Barbie dolls and knew that something inside of him was different. He identified with being a female so much that he was often teased and bullied until he found himself attempting suicide as a method of escape from the torment. Luckily, he was saved and decided that once he was healthy that it was time to become a real woman on the outside to match the girl on the inside.
In order to look more like her feminine visual idols Carmen Electra, Barbie, and Pamela Anderson, the woman formerly known as Jason has undergone the following procedures since the age of 17.
- Lip fillers
- Brow lift
- Cheek implants
- 4 nose jobs
- Jaw surgery
- Chin implants
- 5 breast augmentations
- Silicone injections in the hips, buttocks, and thighs
- Gender reassignment surgery
- Calf Implants
Nicole has had a lot of success performing as a dancer in nightclubs, admired for her looks. Unfortunately, a botched breast augmentation and rhinoplasty performed by the now infamous Brad Jacobs left her in turmoil http://vanquishfatremovalsystem.com/. Jacobs was stripped of his license after he was found guilty of malpractice in other cases involving botched surgeries and misconduct with patients. Unable to sue for compensation, Nicole decided to take part in the Botched television program where she would have revision surgery performed.
The breast correction was at no cost to Nicole other than the 2 month commitment to filming that left her unable to work. Producers failed to make further contact with the patient with claims that she was incredibly difficult to work with. Sources say that she became a diva on camera and was incredibly rude to people working on the show. However, her side of the story is that they cut her after the surgery went wrong. Although complications were unspecified, she claims being unable to work due to the poorly conducted corrective procedure.
Nicole’s story is a message to all people that no surgeon is perfect and any patient can experience problems during or after a procedure. “Revision surgery holds no guarantees, especially in a patient that has multiple surgeries done in one area. In many cases, the reward is more valuable to a patient than the risk that must be taken to improve the body,” said Dr. Jason Hope http://www.healthgrades.com/physician/dr-jason-hope-blasz.
