A 24-year-old man let his friend inject hot Vaseline into his penis in an attempt to make it bigger.

Father of two Szilveszter noticed that his penis was randomly bleeding and causing him extreme pain a few months after the DIY penis enlargement surgery.

His swollen, painful manhood stopped him from having sex.

“It was painful and bleeding. I went to my GP, but he said he couldn’t help me,” he said.

“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.

“Every day is difficult for me as it’s very painful and bleeding. This was the worst mistake in my life as I don’t feel like a real man.”

Szilveszter says his friend convinced him that injecting petroleum jelly into his penis was a good idea.

"I was talking to my friend about wanting to lose weight so my penis would look bigger when he replied, 'You don’t need to lose weight,  I can help you,’”

“My friend injected my penis with Vaseline. Afterwards I was happy as it looked bigger."

In a last ditch attempt to mend his mangled manhood Szilveszter turned to TLC’s Extreme Beauty Disasters.

Resident plastic surgeon Dr Vik Vijh said it was possible to fix his phallus, but it wouldn’t be easy.

“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,” Dr Vijh said.

“The other problem is the foreskin is swelling and splitting, the foreskin is 15 times more swollen than should be.

“It’s not a pretty slight, it’s inflamed, it’s sore, it’s misshapen, his penis is a disaster,” said Dr Vijh

“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 said the only course of action was to skin Szilveszter’s penis.

‘I’m going to have to skin his whole penis like a banana. Then I will have to roll it back up and stitch it closed,’ Dr Vijh explained.

By peeling the organ he was able to remove the scar tissue underneath.

Luckily for Szilveszter the operation was a success.

“I am much better. It has healed well, it's pain-free and working. I can have sex with my wife again," he said.

“Many people said we can't help you. Dr Vijh did a perfect job, he has changed my life.”
