A Hungarian man has revealed the horrifying results of at-home injection of petroleum jelly into his penis, in an attempt to make his manhood appear larger.
“Every day is difficult for me,” 24-year-old Szilveszter revealed on TLC’s Extreme Beauty Disasters show. “It’s very painful and bleeding. This was the worst mistake in my life!”
“I had to stop having sex with my wife as it’s too painful. I would like to have more children but if I can’t have sex I may lose my family.”
He says he injected the Vaseline jelly into his penis following a friend’s recommendation. His penis became swollen and caused him intense pain nine months later.
“I said to my friend I want to lose weight as I think my penis is small. He said you don’t need to lose weight, I can help you. My friend injected in my penis Vaseline. Afterwards I was happy as it looked bigger.”
Szilveszter sought the help of resident plastic surgeon Dr Vik Vijh.
“It’s not a pretty slight, it’s inflammed, it’s sore, it’s misshapen, his penis is a disaster,” Dr Vijh said after examining his penis. “I have been doing plastic surgery now for 20 years and I have never seen anything like this. Injecting petroleum jelly into the penis makes no sense on any level.”
Dr Vijh gave Szilveszter an MRI scan which revealed the large, hard bumps around his penis had formed thanks to his body reacting to the invasion of Vaseline.
Dr Vijh explained the results of Szilveszter’s MRI scan which revealed the large, hard bumps around his penis: “Your body has formed scar tissue around the Vaseline because it’s a foreign body, your body is trying to ward it off and it gives you these painful lumps, it will soon start to ulcer through the skin. The other problem is the foreskin is swelling and splitting – the foreskin is 15 times more swollen than should be.”
‘I have never done this before but fingers crossed we can save his penis,’ Dr Vijh said.
After hours of surgery, the operation was a success.
As a result of Dr Vihj removing all the Vaseline and scar tissue, Szilveszter is now back in full health following his recovery from the operation.
