WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Sandy Scoggins is suing Terry Dubrow for a butt lift surgery that resulted in deadly infections, horrible pain, and permanent disability.
- Scoggins claims several incisions tore open right after the surgery and the week that followed.
- Her lawsuit claims that doctors said bacteria from the infection destroyed over 4 inches of her flesh.
Sandy Scoggins wanted to have some cellulite and loose skin removed from her legs and didn’t want a huge scar after the procedure. This led to her choosing “Botched” star Terry Dubrow for her July 2019 butt lift.
Scoggins now claims that she suffered horribly immediately after the surgery, and is suing Dubrow, E!, and others involved in her surgery for $10 million.
Sandy adds that E! staffers entered the operating room with cameras and lights, scolding her to be quiet because they were filming. She says they didn’t have her consent to be there.
According to her lawsuit, as soon as Sandy tried sitting up in bed post-surgery, an incision in the center of her back above her butt burst open. For the next week, she claims the incision tore open in several more places, including an incision in her groin. She had to go to a hospital for treatment.
Sandy says she developed a serious fever, swelling in her abdomen, and infection in the wounds. Though Sandy claims her attending physician paged Dubrow several times, he never responded.
The suit reported that doctors said bacteria had destroyed over 4 inches of her flesh. A “tan and white synthetic mesh-like material” was also found in her body, allegedly a remnant from Dubrow’s surgery.
Last week, Dubrow claims Scoggins was trying to extort $5 million from him. A motion was filed to handle the case in arbitration. Sources also say that Dubrow doesn’t use mesh during his surgeries, so his procedure could not have possibly been the source of the material in Scoggins.
