An unidentified 30-year-old Swede who wanted to increase both the girth and length of his genitals using a process where fat is transferred from his stomach, has become the first man to die by penis enlargement surgery.
The plastic surgeons who perfomed the suregery had first carried out the elongation process, which involves making an incision to loosen a ligament at the base of the penis after which they began the enlargement and had planned to inject two fluid ounces of fat cells.
According to journal of Forensic Sciences report, they had almost finished the injection before his heart began racing, his oxygen levels fell, and his blood pressure dropped, and he then suffered a heart attack.
Doctors performed CPR and sent the man to an emergency room, after which he died in less than two hours.
Report states that the patient who reportedly had mild asthma, and no past medical history, died from a fat embolism.
”This occurs when fat tissue passes into the bloodstream and lodges within the blood vessels of the lung and other sites, resulting in respiratory failure.’’
‘’The paper states that penile elongation and enlargement is considered to be a simple and safe procedure’ but warns that complications may be higher when both procedures are combined.’’
While this is the first reported death from this kind of surgery, experts say it often leads to other serious problems.
Urologist Tobias Kohler of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota told BuzzFeed News that ‘’It’s a completely useless procedure that never works and disfigures men, and could kill you,”
He said: ‘This is the worst case, but there are lots of other horrible consequences, from disfigurement to permanent erectile dysfunction to even worse.’
Furthermore, one expert has warned that the risks are not worth taking and results are often disappointing.
He says the use of biodegradable frames has had better results than fat injection.
