How to Get an Appointment with Dr. Dubrow from ‘Botched’

Did your facelift or nose job not turn out quite the way you hoped? Maybe you’re regretting stretching your earlobes or have decided your breast implants need to go. Whatever your problem, Dr. Terry Dubrow is here to help. The Orange County plastic surgeon stars on Botched, where he and fellow doctor Paul Nassif fix plastic surgeries gone horribly wrong.

When he’s not appearing on TV, Dr. Dubrow works out of his office in Newport Beach, California. Not only does he repair botched surgeries, but he also offers patients a full range of surgical procedures like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, liposuction, and tummy tucks. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments like laser hair removal, facial fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion are also on the menu.

Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Dubrow

If you’re interested in working with Dr. Dubrow, you can start by scheduling a consultation. To get started, fill out a form online or call the office at 949-515-4111.

A consultation costs $365 and can be done either in person or over the phone. You’ll pay when you make your appointment, and the consultation fee is not applied to any future procedures, according to an email from his office. While Dr. Dubrow does not do phone consultations himself, he is present for in-person consultations that happen on Mondays and Fridays. You’ll likely need to wait 3 to 4 weeks for your consultation, while surgeries typically are scheduled 4 to 6 weeks after a consultation.

While Dr. Dubrow’s office is in Southern California, you don’t need to be in the area to become a patient. Some patients travel from around the country and the world to work with Dr. Dubrow.

Dr. Dubrow’s fellow Botched doctor Paul Nassif also offers consultations for people interested in pursuing plastic surgery.

If you think your plastic surgery disaster makes you a good candidate for Botched, don’t contact Dr. Dubrow’s office, since they don’t handle casting for the show. Instead, head to the Botched casting page. You’ll need to share info about your past plastic surgeries, what you want fixed, and how the botched sugery happened and how it has affected you. You’ll also need to upload photos showing your botched area and your appearance before the surgery. You must be 18 or over to apply.

Getting cast on the show isn’t easy. There are reportedly thousands of applicants for just a few dozen spots each season. Those who do appear on the show are paid for their participation, but Dr. Dubrow doesn’t work for free, he told Allure in 2015, so people typically end up putting the money they receive toward the surgery.

If you’re not willing to flaunt your flaws on television and don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for a consultation, there’s a cheaper way to get advice from Dr. Dubrow. You could buy one of his books. With his wife Heather he’s the author of The Dubrow Diet and Dr. and Mrs. Guinea Pig Present the Only Guide You’ll Ever Need to the Best Anti-Aging Treatments. He also wrote The Acne Cure with co-author Brenda Adderly.
