On Botched, 42-year-old Kelli Johnson was once an aspiring model but was convinced that to make it in the modeling business she needed to get a nose job. But it was a decision that would end her career. "My nose is turnt up, but not like the club," she said.
After her first surgery Johnson knew something was wrong saying, "First of all, there was a piece of cartilage sticking out. He kept telling me, 'Oh, it's just swelling. Don't worry.' But I knew something was wrong because my nostrils were different sizes and shapes. I was mortified."
Dr. Paul Nassif had a plan of action for her nose. To start he would harvest a piece of her rib and take composite grafts from her ear and fascia from her left temple. He would then open up her nose and give her a better airway. Finally, he planned to wrap the cartilage, fascia and rib up and use it to build up the bridge and lower her nostrils which he described as a "burrito, or a grape leaf, because I'm Middle Eastern." Johnson said, "Whatever. Burrito, grape leaves. I don't care if you have to use a tampon. Just fix it."
Once Dr. Nassif was able to get all the parts necessary for her surgery he was able to fix Johnson's nose and she couldn't have been happier.
