Patiaput her faith in the Botched doctors.
The new patient is receiving a consult in this sneak peek of tomorrow’s all-new episode, with Drs. Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif attempting to figure out what went wrong with her upper lip.
After getting a closer look, Dr. Nassif realizes that the surgeon who performed Patia’s initial operation “pulled” her lip over to one side, ultimately making her mouth opening shorter.
To fix this mistake, he’ll need to perform what’s known as a “commissuroplasty.”
“A commissuroplasty is changing the corner of the mouth,” Dr. Nassif explains. “In Patia’s case, what we need to do is take this short commissure, cut it just extend it to equal the length of the other side. To make this happen, we need to move tissues, mucosa, and muscle.
It’s not an easy procedure, but it will be worth the effort. It will, however, “make the upper lip look more natural and normal.”
