EXCLUSIVE: Botched star Dr. Paul Nassif reveals the most shocking cases he's ever had - including a woman who was left with horrific facial scarring after waiting in an ER for treatment for SEVEN HOURS following a car crash (10 Pics)

Botched star Dr. Paul Nassif has opened up about some of the most shocking and emotional cases that he has seen walk through his doors during his six season on the E! reality show. 
The 57-year-old plastic surgeon, who is based in Beverly Hills, spoke to DailyMail.com about the sixth season of the reality series - while opening up about the anger and upset he feels whenever he meets someone who has suffered as the result of a botched surgery. 
One such case is Brontee, a woman who appears in a new episode of Botched season six - which is now airing on Hayu.com - to speak to Dr. Nassif and his colleague Dr. Terry Dubrow about horrific facial scarring she suffered after her car was hit by a drunk driver.

In the teaser clip for the episode, Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow are seen discussing Brontee's case, while looking at images of her painful-looking injuries, which she sustained as a result of the glass from her car window slicing through her cheek. 
'So this basically was a motor vehicle accident [and she got] glass in her face,' Dr. Nassif explains. 
'Trauma to her face. Looks like she still has some residual fullness from whatever that was.'
The surgeons then meet with Brontee and her partner Axel, who recount the awful night that their car was hit by an intoxicated driver - leaving Brontee in the hospital with agonizing injuries to her face. 
'Three years ago we were involved in a car accident... a drunk driver hit us,' Brontee explains. 'I think she [blew a] .18 [blood alcohol level].'  
Axel then reveals that the driver, as well as having more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in her blood, was also found to have cocaine in her system at the time of the crash. 
'The window smashed, and my face took the impact of the glass,' Brontee continues, prompting Dr. Nassif to clarify: 'So the glass sliced right through your cheek?' 
Outrage: Dr. Nassif was left furious when he discovered that doctors in the ER didn't even try to remove the glass from Brontee's cheek while waiting for a surgeon

But the nightmare for Brontee had only just begun; despite being picked up by paramedics and taken to a nearby hospital, she then faced an agonizing wait for treatment, revealing that emergency room staff left her bleeding into a bandage for a staggering seven hours - a wait that Dr. Nassif believes likely made her condition far worse. 
'They didn't have a surgeon on duty and they had to wait until the surgeon came in at about 7AM,' Brontee recalls, revealing that she and Axel arrived at the hospital at around midnight. 
She adds that the doctors on call didn't attempt to remove any of the glass from her face, but instead 'wrapped it up' in an attempt to control the bleeding until she could see a surgeon. 
'I pretty much just continued bleeding throughout the night,' Brontee explains.  
Dr. Nassif is left almost speechless by their story - before hitting out at the emergency room staff who dealt with Brontee's case, telling the camera: 'Brontee had many problems relating to waiting all night for a doctor to come in. 
'One, she was bleeding all night. That could have stopped if the doctor had closed it. Two, the risk of infection goes up. Three, there's a possibility that it could increase scar formation if you wait too long. 
'The doctor should have gotten his a** in there a lot sooner.' 
As a result of her mishandled treatment, Brontee is now left with obvious scarring on her right cheek - as well as a lumpy patch that doctors believe could be the result of the scarred tissue.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, Dr. Nassif admitted that seeing cases like Brontee's tend to see him 'run the gamut' of emotions, explaining: 'We get angry... our emotions are mixed. From anger to... you feel horrible for that person.  
'How have they been living like this? It's a combination of feelings that change throughout the whole process.' 
And it's not just this particular case that prompts these feelings from the doctor, who added that he is often left in shock at what some of his patients have been through. 
'Why would a dentist do a breast augmentation? These are all of the kinds of things that we have to wonder,' he said. 
There are also instances where he is left feeling incredibly frustrated by the patients themselves, specifically those who he and Dr. Dubrow warn against undergoing any further surgery. 
The doctors are regularly confronted with people who suffer from plastic surgery addiction, body dysmorphic disorder, or OCD, and many of them have reached a stage where additional cosmetic procedures could end up causing severe damage to their bodies. 
'In the beginning when we were doing this, we thought everyone would listen to us, and we were upset,' he says of the advice that they have given to patients in the past. 'But now I have to tell you, we almost expect it. And when they listen to us, it's a nice surprise.' 
However, when it comes to Brontee's case, and others like it, Dr. Nassif is inspired by the changes that he and Dr. Dubrow are able to have on their patients' lives, with the surgeon saying: 'They're sad, but they're great because we are actually able to help.' 
Memories: Dr. Nassif also revealed to DailyMail.com that one of his most memorable patients was trans activist Rajee Narinesingh who had cement injected into her face

Dr. Nassif recalled one of their most famous patients - transgender activist Rajee Narinesingh - who pushed both surgeons further than they ever thought they would go when they worked to repair the shocking damage that had been done to her face when she had liquid cement fillers injected into it.  
She was one of the victims of 'toxic tush' doctor Oneal Ron Morris, who performed illegal plastic surgeries using substances such as Fix-a-Flat, Super Glue and mineral oil instead of medical-grade silicone, leaving patients horrifically disfigured. 
Rajee, who was born in New York but grew up in Philadelphia, had Morris inject her cheeks, lips and chin back in 2005, and she was left with a series of lumps and bumps across her cheeks. However, she was too 'embarrassed and ashamed' to go to the authorities.
However, she eventually sought help from doctors Nassif and Dubrow in 2015 - and was devastated when they turned her away over fears that more damage could be done to her face in an attempt to correct the botched procedure. 
Eventually however the doctors worked out a way to help her - and she was left looking like a completely new woman. 
'Rajee was someone that we finally went back and operated on to remove some of those silicone granulomas from her face,' Dr. Nassif recalled. 'We knew we couldn’t help her. But then it ended up working out.' 
Botched season six is now available to stream on Hayu.com
