I need financial help to reconstruct a botched tummy tuck

Tummy Tuck

I had a tummy tuck about 20 years ago and it was botched... I have now been divorced for the past 4 years (not by choice) and I can't move on with my life. I don't like looking at myself in the mirror therefore I fear for my future. I tend to isolate myself from the world. I would like to have a chance at life again but the hideous scar that I was left with is holding me back.

"They ended up going in six times, and they just slowly cut off half of my nose. I remember calling my agent while I was in there going, 'I'm not going to be able to shoot next week because I have half a nose.'"
