Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow went from being the husbands of Beverly Hills housewives to landing their own reality show.
Both plastic surgeons, they now star on “Botched,” a show dedicated to helping women and men whose lives have been ruined by plastic surgery mishaps. Right now, there is no bigger plastic surgery story then that of 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, and her extra pouty lips. She finally came clean on the family’s reality show, joining the story lines of Bruce Jenner’s transition and Khloe Kardashian’s never-ending divorce.
Jenner, who for months, circled around questions about her instantly plump lips, and spawned the Kylie Jenner Challenge craze, admitted to lip injections due to insecurities around her small pout.
Seeing as she comes from the family of selfie queen Kim Kardashian, we can’t really blame her. But is 17 years old too young for plastic surgery?
We spoke to Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow about what they think about teens going under the knife, and what we can expect from the current season of “Botched.”
On what they think about Kylie Jenner and other teens getting plastic surgery: TD: “Apart from ears pinning and noses, we’re not into it. We don’t think it’s a good idea.
On discouraging young girls who come into your office from getting lip fillers: PN: “We just say no.” TD: “I will say our societies are mixed on it, and a lot of plastic surgeons who are board certified like we are, are ok with it. We are in the group that isn’t really ok with it.”
On the craziest botched plastic surgeries that you saw this season: PN: “They are coming up. really, you have to see the show. There is some incredible nasal traumas that I’ve never seen before in my life.” TD: “I had a woman who tried to get bigger and bigger breast implants to the point where it destroyed her breasts. And one of them even ruptured. But there was so much scar tissue and so much damage that they were basically impossible to fix, I didn’t know what to do. We went through this journey, it’s incredible.
On if they were able to do anything for Jordan James, the guy who wanted to look like Kim Kardashian: PN: “We wanted him to stop.” TD: “For his own good.”
