In an attempt to extend the length of his penis, a man cut his life short during penis enlargement surgery performed at a private plastic surgery clinic in Stockholm, Sweden, the Journal of Forensic Sciences reported.
The surgery which is considered a safe procedure, involves transferring unwanted fat from the patient’s belly to his penis.
This marks the first known death from penis enlargement surgery, the journal reports.
The patient went into cardiac arrest and was given CPR, but it was unsuccessful. He died hours later.
Doctors said the patient likely died because the loosening of the ligament and the fat injections in the penis shaft were performed at the same time.
