Man dies during penis enlargement surgery. First ever death as a result of enlargement procedure.
A 30-year old man who was reported to have been healthy has passed away during penile enlargement surgery. The purpose of the operation was to increase general girth and length.
According to a report in the Journal of Forensic Sciences, the operation had been planned to use a process where fat is transferred from his belly to his penis.
When surgeons had finished the elongation part of the surgery and started the enlargement, something went terribly wrong.
Injecting the patient with two fluid ounces of his own fat cells, the fat leaked into his lungs and it resulted in an embolism.
This ruptured his blood vessels. Even though the patient had no prior heart conditions, he had a heart attack on the operating table.
Despite attempts from doctors to perform CPR, the young man died around two hours later.
The journal goes on to state: “This is the first described case where a seemingly simple and safe procedure of penis enlargement by autologous fat transfer caused sudden death in a healthy young man.”
It also suggested the surgery was riskier since it combined two procedures.
