Doctors and experts in their fields, bariatric surgeons Dr. Khan, Dr. Hodges, and Dr. Rao along with plastic surgeons Dr. Kundu and Dr. Caplin, take on these botched bariatric patients and see if they can undo the mistakes made during their previous surgeries. This new series premieres on Wednesday, May 15th at 10PM ET/PT on TLC.
