A woman’s breast tissues started to rot and smell like dying flesh after a botched breast reduction surgery.
On Monday night’s episode of E! series, Botched, the woman, named Esmeralda, describes how she was left with a “hole” in both of breasts after her doctor had spent six months cutting out the decaying flesh.
“I’ve seen a lot of breast reductions, and I’ve seen a lot of complications from them, but this is the worst complication from a breast reduction I have ever seen,” plastic surgeon, Dr. Terry Dubrow said.
Speaking with Dr. Dubrow and his partner, Dr. Paul Nassif, Esmeralda, explains that she decided to have a breast reduction because her DDD breasts were causing her back pain.
However, she started to get worried shortly after her surgery when she started to smell something rotting.
“The smell was coming through my shirt. That’s when I started to panic. I feel like we know what a dead body smells like now,” she explained.
Esmeralda added that her doctor promised that they could fix it, and each time she saw him, he would cut deeper into her flesh to remove the dead skin.
She explained, “For six months, I would go up to see him up to three times a week just so he could cut off the dead skin until it turned into flesh, open flesh, but it was deep.”
Dr Dubrow then asks Esmeralda if her doctor ever sent her to a wound care center and she responds, that her doctor treated her himself.
Dr. Dubrow was disappointed by her first doctor’s approach.
‘If you have tissue necrosis and tissue loss, and you need to treat it by surgical removal, you have to do it very aggressively and very quickly,’ he says in his testimonial,” he said
