Five Important Lessons the Show “Botched” Teaches Us

You may not be a big fan of a television show that highlighted plastic surgeries gone awry, but there are quite a few reasons why everyone should watch the TV show “Botched.” The series is popular and has brought in a good number of viewers, but it isn’t as much entertainment as it is educational. Here are five important lessons that we have learned from the show so far.

1. Avoid unnecessary extreme plastic surgeries

We learn a lot about the pros and cons of extreme surgeries. One of the things that we learned is that massive sized breast implants have the potential to deform the shape of your breasts. Some surgeons may refuse to perform such a procedure while others are willing to give it a try if that is what the patient wants. We learn by watching the consequences that some others have experienced and it lets us know that some extreme plastic surgeries come with high risk of unsatisfactory results and the need for more surgeries to fix the problems that they cause. The predominant theme of the show is a solid advisement against having extreme plastic surgeries that are not necessary. In most cases, less is better.

2. Cheap rates may be a red flag to run

The field of plastic surgery is competitive and there is a virtual plethora of surgeons to choose from. Some offer big discounts on their services. They are doing so to attract more patients. “Botched” shows us some very good reasons why we should avoid plastic surgeons who offer budget prices. If their clientele is low there is probably a reason. Many botched surgeries come from cut rate surgeons who are not popular for the quality of the work that they perform. Not all who offer lower prices are bad necessarily, but bear in mind, the old adage “you get what you pay for” is generally true.

3. Not all botched surgeries are the fault of the surgeon

While the majority of problems that arise from errors in judgment or surgical procedures, it isn’t the case in every situation. There are times when an extreme surgical procedure, such as breast implants will cause issues within the body itself. There have been cases where tumors have formed at the site of an implant, fluid collection and swelling, allergic reactions, and so forth. Not every surgery goes off without a hitch, regardless of how skilled or competent the surgeons are. This is why patients are informed of all of the potential risks associated with the procedure.

4. Take “no” for an answer

Some patients are so set on having a particular part of their body changed or augmented that they will not listen to practical advise from trusted surgeons. This is often a mistake that leads to more problems and dissatisfaction. When a qualified physician tells you no, and explains the reasons why, you should listen to him or her. They know the potential risks and are being ethical by turning down the money for performing a procedure that they know may put you in jeopardy. You seriously don’t want to end up as a client on the “Botched” television series.

5. Don’t leave the country for plastic surgery

The United States have strict protocols for specializing surgeons. They must pass boards for certification and prove that they are competent and knowledgeable in their chosen fields. You don’t want a surgeon who is guessing that they can take a few shortcuts to save time on your procedure. Other countries use different standards for approving surgeons for practice. It isn’t worth taking the chance that the one who works on you will have a few deficiencies. The show features several patients who came back from other countries with botched results.
