Extreme Dr. 90210
 
While watching E! last night they had a commercial for "Extreme Dr. 90210" which I think they said would be on Wednesday night this week. It's about plastic surgery horror stories apparently. Hopefully I'll be around to watch it.

Thanks for the heads up. I hope I can catch this as well!

Okay so tonight's the night let's hope I remember. I will wait all week for a show then forget the night of the show LOL.

This is on at 10 o clock tonight and before that there is a 2 hour special about the 20 best and worst celebrity plastic surgery cases but I am 90% sure that is a repeat.

I SAW THIS AND THATS WHY I CAME TO THIS PLASTIC SURGERY FORUM!

I was really inspired by Jaime's story the most.

This show has given me the motivation and belief that a new me is possible. I want to have self-esteem for once in my life and be proud of my looks!

Will this show be a regular series?

la_angel 12-03-2009 02:05 PM

I wasn't able to catch it but I did record it and will try and get to it today or tomorrow. Based on what you say ronnie, it sounds like it was a pretty good show! I don't believe it is a new series, only a special. But you never know if the ratings were good enough then we will see :)

robyne00 12-03-2009 04:27 PM

I missed it (totally not a TV person, and I tried to remember but my memory can be shot at times) lol! :(

How was it?

I was finally able to see this and I liked it, but I wish they would have focused more on the surgery rather than body modifications like tongue splitting, piercings, etc. The transgender person really was a basketcase. I don't recall his age (I think it was 19 or 20) and he said that he believed his feminization surgery would "solve all my problems." People that believe any surgery will solve "all their problems" need to see a therapist or psychiatrist. They are not a good candidate for surgery and I can't believe a doctor would do those operations with a patient that says that kind of stuff!

I agree wholeheartedly. I used to do psych evaluations for patients trying to get approved for gastric bypass surgery. I was working in an urban area, and all these morbidly obese people had such skewed views about how this surgery was going to "transform" their lives. Many women said they wanted to look like models or particular celebs and were seriously determined to do it. Although many were required to lose a substantial amount of weight prior to the surgery, they never did, as the surgery was being perceived as a magic bullet.

There is NO magic bullet. I have seen many people over the years have various surgeries including lipo, gastric bypass, fillers, rhinoplasty, etc., and maintain their mindset and lifestyle. Many gastric bypass patients gain their weight back. Many plastic surgery patients sue their surgeons or keep getting surgery after surgery.

The individual la_angel mentions above is not an ideal candidate for surgery, especially such a radical series of procedures and lifestyles changes. In my opinion, the doctor was either performing the surgery as he was being filmed (self-serving agenda). He might have a slew of degrees and cerftificates, but the aforementioned info diminishes any accreditations he may hold. Disgusting!

Excellent analysis, Robyne!

I think all of us put our hopes and dreams into various "remedies" (whether that be a new nose or a new house) and it's important we tell ourselves that none of these things are going to fix life's problems. In fact, they may just create more problems! If this young kid that got this plastic surgery on his face done later decided in life he wants to be a man again, what is he going to do?

The teen years and the twenties are such a crazy time for all of us and we're changing our minds a lot. This kid shouldn't be able to suddenly decide he wants to be a woman and then be allowed to get permanent plastic surgery done. That is malpractice in my opinion. I think decisions like that need to be thought out carefully for a very long time, maybe even a decade or more as an adult first!
