'Botched': Woman with 'zombie breasts' asks Dr Paul Dubrow to help remove her troublesome breast implants
Judy was so conscious about her breasts that she wanted her 'zombie' breasts to go.
Judy, a mother of four, wanted to have a makeover and decided to undergo "a tummy tuck, a BBL and a breast augmentation when she first went to Columbia. Unfortunately, things did not go her way as two and a half years after the surgery, Judy found herself hating the implants that she had got.
To make sure that she was happy with the way she looked, Judy decided to go to the Dominican Republic to decrease her implant size. "It was a terrible experience. I went to the recovery house, I was so sick," Judy said. "I came back to the United States, immediately went to the hospital, 'cause I was running a fever."
But having a fever was not the worse of things that Judy had expected to happen. Judy started getting wounds on her incisions and her worst nightmare came true when her implant fell out and into the hand of a plastic surgeon's physician assistant. "She was hysterical. She's like, 'I've never seen this before,'" she said while Durbow replied that neither had he heard or seen something like that before.
To make things worse, Judy's other implant also fell out the day of her corrective surgery and the doctor informed her that she "had contracted two antibiotic-resistant bacterias" which led her to have VAC therapy and a two-week stay in the hospital. However, this resulted in Judy having breasts that she was not too happy to see.
"You know what the problem is? That second surgeon in the Dominican Republic cut out the blood supply to the breast tissue," Dubrow explained. "It slowly started to die and turn into, basically, a zombie breast." Dubrow then decided to examine Judy and see how things are. "The fact that Judy no longer has a lower pole makes it really difficult to conceptually figure out how to make her a normal breast," he said.
Even though Dubrow thought that Judy's health would be at risk if he decided to give her implants, he decided to do the corrective surgery without implants. Judy was so conscious about her breasts that she wanted her "zombie" breasts to go. After hearing that Dubrow could help her, Judy was extremely happy.
"My first move with Judy today is to try to give her a good shape without using implants. If I'm unable to get a good shape, then I may have to resort to implants," Dubrow explained. "But, I really don't want to. Because, if you don't have breast implants, you can't have a breast implant complication." Luckily, Dubrow was able to come with a result that Judy was pleased with.
"Thanks to Dr. Dubrow, my scars are gone and now I have two full, perky and implant-free breasts," she said after looking at her breasts.
