Sure, Dr. Terry Dubrow is a gifted and renowned plastic surgeon, but he's also known as one of the stars of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County — he's been married to actress and Real Housewives star Heather Dubrow for over 20 years. That's what really matters, right?
The doctor-turned-reality-star obviously made most of his big bucks from his work in the medical field, as he's one of the top plastic and reconstructive surgeons in America. But, being the face of multiple reality television shows surely amped up his already fruitful net worth.
Dr. Terry Dubrow has been a media presence ever since his appearance on Fox's wildly controversial reality series The Swan in 2004 (don't worry, we'll get to that blasphemous piece of pop culture history later). Being a celebrity doctor essentially creates a double duty income, and, in turn, a stunning net worth. So, what is the doc's net worth?
What is Dr. Terry Dubrow's net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the doc has a net worth of $50 million. As mentioned, Dr. Terry Dubrow was first introduced in the media when he participated in the 2004 reality series The Swan — which was thankfully only granted two seasons before dying off.
The premise sees women with low self-esteem compete in an unusually superficial, almost cult-like beauty pageant. They go head-to-head after transformation for three months by a team of professionals (a coach, surgeon, dentist, trainer, and, probably most importantly, therapist).
Dr. Terry was one of the series's plastic surgeons. If you haven't caught on, the show aims to transform "ugly ducklings" into beautiful swans. According to Too Fab, the doc relayed that everyone had "very good intentions" making the show. "It's sort of the real-life version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show," he stated. Oof.

These days, Dr. Terry Dubrow — who, according to his website, "has over 30 papers published in surgical journals and co-authored The Acne Cure" — is most involved in E!'s Botched and its one-season spinoff, Botched by Nature.
In Botched, Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry aim to correct plastic surgery nightmares, many of them botched due to illegal procedures. In Botched by Nature circa 2016, the doctors traveled across America to help people who were "botched by genetics" or suffered lasting physical effects from traumatic accidents (like shark bites).
“We want to tell cautionary tales of plastic surgery experiences," Dr. Terry told Zwivel regarding Botched. “Something I like to point out is how plastic surgery is often regarded as being as safe as having your hair and nails done, when in fact it can be quite dangerous," he explained, urging people to take plastic surgery seriously.
"We want people to understand that when you choose to undergo plastic surgery, you’re potentially taking on some very serious risks. Certain cosmetic surgery procedures can be as serious as cardiac or brain surgery, so we feel a responsibility to educate the public," he continued.
