Series 3 Special: Botched Up Abroad

Format: 1 x 60 minutes

Channel: Channel 5

Botched Up Bodies returns to Channel 5 for a special documentary - Botched Up Abroad - looking at the trend of cosmetic tourism.

Thousands of Britons go abroad every year for nips and tucks, but do they always get the results they bargained for?

We follow the stories of people whose sun, sea and surgery excursions turned into a nightmare. Now back home, what can our top team of surgeons do to correct the mistakes?

32-year-old actress Barbara didn’t get the results she wanted when she ended up with a mangled mouth in Prague. Consultant craniofacial surgeon Niall Kirkpatrick is tasked with repairing the damage.

A fear of the dentist and a love of fizzy drinks combined to give 53-year-old fire fighter Steven a mouth of fillings, caps and false teeth. Unable to afford the sky-high prices in the UK, Steven found a surgery in Budapest which offered cheap implants, free accommodation and a package that seemed to surpass what was on offer in the UK… but he was left with a mangled mouth. Can cosmetic dental surgeon Adam Slade repair the damage and restore Steven’s smile?

Breast augmentation is the most popular surgery for women in the UK. But with the average price of going under the knife here coming in at £5,000, it’s out of reach for many women. More and more are turning to cheaper options abroad, like 30-year-old call centre worker Nicole.

Following her operation in Turkey, Nicole was left with a massive infection that resulted in her new implants having to be removed by the NHS. She was left with lopsided sagging boobs. Consultant reconstructive surgeon Patrick Mallucci has the job of repairing the damage and giving Nicola the bust she wants.

Series 3 Special: Botched Up Brides

Format: 1 x 60 minutes

Channel: Channel 5

Every bride wants to look good on their big day and an increasing number are prepared to have a nip and tuck to ensure they do... but what happens when disaster strikes? In this special Botched Up Bodies documentary, we find out.

For 45-year-old Dawn, choosing to have a second breast reduction close to her wedding day was a decision she would live to regret. In the hope of getting her married life back on track, and to find out if anything can be done to repair the damage so she can finally book her honeymoon, Dawn visits plastic surgeon Patrick Mallucci.

47-year-old Deborah decided to have her lips plumped for her wedding. But the filler that was injected caused a horrific reaction, leaving her with hideously swollen and pus-filled lips for her wedding day. Craniofacial surgeon Niall Kirkpatrick is tasked with repairing the damage.

By far the most common goal on a pre-wedding beauty wish list is to lose weight. A staggering 96% of women aim to shed pounds, with the average weight loss for a UK bride being 11 pounds and 3 ounces.

38-year-old Rachel had a gastric bypass to help slim down in time for her wedding to fiancé Michael. But following the operation her skin split open, resulting in a deep hole in her stomach, oozing with infection. Can surgeon Peter Arnstein repair the damage in time for her to walk down the aisle?
