Calling for divine intervention.

Plastic surgery patient Jazmyn meets with Drs. Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow in a sneak peek at tonight's Botched, airing July 20, to see whether or not her large birth mark can be removed. As Dr. Nassif explains, Jazmyn's feature is dangerously along the back of her neck, and falls right where the skin tightens. 

"This is a very challenging case for anybody," Nassif warns. "If I just went inside there right now and tried to cut it out, that wouldn't work because the skin in the back of the neck and behind the eye doesn't usually stretch that well. We would not be able to close your skin." 

Yet, the always-inventive Nassif has a "little idea" about how to loosen Jazymn's skin prior to surgery: A tissue expander could be placed under her birth mark to slowly expand the area over a few weeks.

Even Dr. Dubrow has to admit it's a good idea. "Hm, I've never thought of that," he says.

Jazmyn is left in tears. "So, there's hope?" she cries.

In a confessional, she adds, "In the past, I felt like a lost cause. I felt like nobody could really help me. This mark has consumed so much of my identity, so hearing that there's a strong possibility of it being taken off, I feel like the heaven's opened up and sang to me."

E!

Dubrow notes that the procedure is coming at the perfect time as Jazmyn's mark has grown. But, Nassif quickly points out that she will have a scar "no matter what" from the surgery. 

"So at the final stage, you can get tattooed," he clarified.
