Looks like you’re better off sticking with jelqing, fellas.
According to the Daily Mail, a healthy (except below the belt) Swedish man hoping to increase both the “girth and length of his genitals using a process where fat is transferred from his stomach” has unfortunately succumbed to a heart attack that was the result of a “fat embolism.”
Of course, a fat embolism “occurs when fat tissue passes into the bloodstream and lodges within the blood vessels of the lung and other sites, resulting in respiratory failure.”
That makes this guy the first dude ever to die while he was in the middle of a penis enlargement surgery.

Many experts say the procedure, which involves injecting two fluid ounces of fat cells into your pecker, is hogwash even after the patient leaves the hospital after a “successful” operation, and one of those naysayers is urologist Tobias Kohler of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
“It’s a completely useless procedure that never works and disfigures men, and could kill you,” Kohler said. “This is the worst case, but there are lots of other horrible consequences, from disfigurement to permanent erectile disfunction to even worse.”
So, yeah. That’s just plain gross.
