We’re currently 3 episodes deep into season 8 of “Botched,” which airs on E!, and honestly, it’s one of my favorite things TV even has to offer.

The show is far more than simply a spectacle of medical procedures and cosmetic transformations.

“Botched” actually has a lot to offer us as viewers, and it’s more than just surface-level stuff. The show stands for a glimpse into the human psyche, an exploration of self-improvement, and a testament to the art and science of plastic surgery.

So, in case you haven’t ever seen the show, it basically follows LA-based plastic surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif as they tackle some of the most challenging and intriguing cases of cosmetic surgery gone wrong.

Sometimes the doctors work on celebrities, but mostly they’re working with people just like you and me who are seeking a fresh start and a renewed sense of self.

What makes “Botched” truly special and different from your other run-of-the-mill reality shows is the emotional connection that’s built up through every episode with us as viewers.

Each episode is not merely about correcting a physical flaw; it’s about mending emotional scars and rebuilding confidence. Just like they say, beauty is more than skin deep, and “Botched” goes further than what you can see on the surface too.

Patients from all over the world come to the show bearing the marks of previous surgeries that didn’t go as planned, hoping Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow can change their bodies and their lives in the process.

Their stories are often filled with pain, embarrassment, suffering, and heartbreak. But with the expert hands of Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow, they find hope, transformation, and a new lease on life.
