A young man with a disfigured nose after a dog bite opens up to Dr. Nassif and his family about his struggles in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the all-new episode of ‘Botched.’
Marcelo comes to Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow for help in the April 13 episode of Botched. “When I was 4 years old, I went to go pet my family dog, and I think it kind of got freaked out and it bit my nose,” Marcelo explains. “Next thing I remember I’m just waking up and I’m in a hospital bed.” Marcelo reveals that surgery on his nose was done the same day.
Dr. Nassif says the doctor did the best they could at the time, but now there’s a “discrepancy of tissue” on Marcelo’s nose. “When you use a flap, you’re moving tissue on one part of the face to another part,” Dr. Nassif says. In Marcelo’s case, the tissue was moved from his cheek to his nose. “He kept growing but the flap did not,” Dr. Nassif continues.
