Man’s Penis Cracks Open After He Injects It With Vaseline, Calls It “The Worst Mistake In My Life!”

27C5E57800000578-3046769-image-m-36_1429520705915Just when we thought we’d heard it all, a Hungarian man injected his penis with petroleum jelly. He wanted it to appear larger. Instead, the organ became so swollen and the pain so intense that he stopped being able to have sex.

“Every day is difficult for me,” 24-year-old Szilveszter (pictured) recently lamented in TLC’s latest freak show Extreme Beauty Disasters. “It’s very painful and bleeding. This was the worst mistake in my life!”

“I had to stop having sex,” he continued. “It’s too painful.”

Szilveszter went on to explain that he first got the idea to inject his dong with Vaseline from a friend.

“I said to my friend I want to lose weight as I think my penis is small,” he recalled. “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.”

But that gratification was only temporary. Nine moths later, Szilveszter’s penis began to change forms, becoming swollen and misshapen. On top of that, his foreskin swelled up 15 times its regular size, cracking in several places. The pain was insurmountable.

Szilveszter went to several doctors, but none of them said they could help. So he turned to plastic surgeon Dr. Vik Vijh from Extreme Beauty Disasters.

“I have been doing plastic surgery now for 20 years,” Vijh said, “and I have never seen anything like this. Injecting petroleum jelly into the penis makes no sense on any level.”

“His penis,” the doctor added, “is a disaster.”

An MRI scan revealed large, hard bumps had formed inside of Szilveszter’s wiener as a result of the Vaseline injections.

Vijh explained to the patient: “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 only way to heal Szilveszter’s frankenpenis, Vijh said, was to literally skin the thing, then surgically remove the Vaseline and scar tissue.

“I have never done this before,” he said before the surgery, “but fingers crossed we can save his penis.”

Thankfully, everything worked out in the end. After several hours on the operating table, all of the Vaseline that had been injected into Szilveszter’s penis was removed and the organ restored back to normal.

“I am much better,” he now says. “It has healed well. It’s pain-free and working. I can have sex.”

He also says he’s learned his lesson and that he won’t try anymore D.I.Y. penis experiments.

Here’s hoping.
