Cosmetic surgery documentary Botched Up Bodies returns to Channel 5 tonight. The fascinating programme, which began its second series run in August 2013, will tonight look at the cases of three more people who underwent cosmetic surgery in the hope of transforming their bodies only to be left with disastrous results.
Marie Eaton, who used to weigh in at 50 stone, underwent a gastric bypass; however the procedure went drastically wrong. As a result of the surgery, Marie shed over 35 stone but now has masses of excess skin hanging from her small frame. In tonight’s episode, she consults leading surgeon Peter Amstein to discover if he can perform an operation to remove it.
Also in tonight’s programme, US-based Apryl Brown, who opted for silicone injections to improve the shape of her buttocks, but was instead injected with bathroom sealant, speaks of her regret about having the procedure done on the blackmarket. The sealant caused a huge infection which resulted in Apryl losing her arms and legs. The episode also follows the case of Shenise Farrell, who wanted to permanently change her eye colour, a procedure which is not licensed in Europe. She risked having the procedure done in Panama, forking out a massive £8,000, but the surgery left her technically blind. In tonight’s episode, Ophthalmic surgeon Ali Mearza works to save Shenise’s sight.
