Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow have teamed up for a new E! show to repair surgeries gone wrong. The show, “Botched,” premiered Tuesday, June 24 at 9:00 p.m.

In each one hour episode, the doctors will be tasked with restoring, fixing and adjusting what appear to be unfixable, botched procedures and operations. From the more bizarre cases like altering what’s commonly referred to as a uniboob to a man obsessed with looking like Justin Bieber and a transgendered patient who after 24 surgeries just wants a more normal life, Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow were definitely put to the ultimate medical test. 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.

In an exclusive interview, Dr. Paul Nassif said this show is not one to be missed.

Q: How did you get involved in the show?

Nassif: Well I was on “Dr. 90210″ on E! if you remember that show. And before that show I did a lot of makeovers on “Extra” and “ET” and that kind of stuff. So it was something for me that i really enjoyed is doing the plastic surgery stuff. Being on television is fun especially when you can show your work and do nice human interest stories that helps the patients and that is really fun and really rewarding. So if someone has some problems they can see what I could do that might be able to help them. This show gave me the opportunity that people can be helped which is extremely important.

Q: So these are all people that got surgeries that went wrong and they need you to help fix it or correct it as best you can?

Nassif: Yes and that is where the whole “Botched” came into play. Our goal is to help these patients and fix them as best as you can. You can’t hit home runs all the time especially if you are doing a fourth, fifth or sixth revision on a face lift or nose job your goal is to take someone who is really messed up and go willing we will be able to give them an improvement and help their lives. When you watch some of their stories on this show it’s amazing that we are doing a small thing that will help these patients and giving them some relief especially since it’s such an interesting story.

Q: Why should people tune into this show what can they learn?

Nassif: Well first of all they are learning about plastic surgery. Just like any other television show you watch you go wow I didn’t know they could do this. You are learning something that is not only interesting but learning about these people that have been dealing with something horrible. So if you are at home and have a similar situation it’s nice to see on television that something can be fixed or helped in some way. I think by people watching and learning about it they will see that there are people out there that can help others. We might show you something you may never thought could be done.

Dr. Nassif is working on a new skincare line that he plans to release soon and is also working on expanding his offices and services with a move coming shortly. Nassif said the best way to contact him is to give his office a call.
