A man (though he believes he is a woman) whose face was left disfigured after a self-proclaimed ‘physician’ injected it with cement and tire sealant more than a decade ago turns to two Los Angeles-based surgeons in the hopes that they can remove the concrete nodules underneath her skin once and for all.
Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif kick of season three of the E! reality show Botched on Tuesday night with the return of Rajee Narinesingh, a 48-year-old transgender from Hollywood, Florida, who received the harmful black market injections in his cheeks, chin, and lips at a ‘pumping party’ in 2005.
Rajee was one of the victims of ‘toxic tush’ doctor Oneal Ron Morris, who performed illegal plastic surgeries using substances such as Fix-a-Flat, Super Glue and mineral oil.
After the life-changing injections, Rajee was left with a face that was as hard as a rock, but felt too embarrassed to go to the authorities.
Rajee turned to Dr John Martin of Coral Gables Cosmetic Reconstructive Surgery in 2012 for treatment of the harmful procedure, and was given softening injections and laser therapy.
Hoping to finally have the cement nodules removed from his face, Rajee appeared on Botched in 2015, but was turned away after his consultation because Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nassif felt it was ultimately safer to leave his face as it was.
However, just a year later, the doctors are ready to give Rajee’s face another look because they so desperately want to help.
‘I have to make sure my plan is a conservative one, it’s a smart one and it doesn’t take any undo careless risks with Rajee’s face,’ Dr. Dubrow explains in Tuesday night’s clip.
Dr. Dubrow tells Rajee that he and Dr. Nassif have two major concerns when it comes to surgically taking the masses out of his face.
The doctor says that they are worried that when they go in there and try remove the cement, they will ‘activate the inflammatory process’ and turn her face into an ‘inflammatory mess’.
Another concern is that the ‘masses encase all the muscles, nerves, and blood vessels, and taking them out would do a lot of damage to the skin’ and could potentially hurt her nerves. DailyMail
