'Botched' surgeons try to help woman who had cement injected in face

The Botched surgeons are about to tackle their most difficult and dangerous case yet.
Throughout the first two seasons of the show, plastic surgeons Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif have corrected horribly botched surgeries from dodgy breast implants to collapsed noses.
And the upcoming season three will see them attempting to help a woman who had cement and tyre sealant injected into her face at a so-called 'pumping party' back in 2005.
"Rajee [Narinesingh] is a person who got black-market, illegal concrete injections in her face and carried this burden for years," Dr Dubrow told Entertainment Weekly.
"She truly looks like the Elephant Man. She’s one we turned down because she came to us as a last-ditch effort, and even we said, it’s too risky.
"Since season 2 and season 3, we sat around and thought about it and formulated a plan that we thought, although extremely risky, provided potentially a chance, based on our first two seasons’ experience of working."
Rajee (48) will be familiar to viewers from her previous encounters with the doctors but features once again in the first episode of season 3 which airs on Tuesday May 17 on E!.
"It’s not without complications. It’s not without major agony. But I would suggest you watch and see what happens!" added Dr Dubrow.
Speaking about the impact the concrete injections had on her Rajee, who was born a man, previously said, "For years I was too ashamed and embarrassed to face dating."

Another tough case this season involves a woman who had eight nose jobs in Mexico.
Dr Nassif reveals that the surgeries this season push their skills to the limits and "sometimes [carry] a very high risk of a complication, up to 50 per cent" which will result in some patients having difficulties healing and facing complications this season.
