A self-confessed plastic surgery addict in Croatia has been left with a permanent and painful erection after surgery went wrong.
But 45-year-old reality star Neven Ciganovic has not been scared off going under the knife again, despite the horror.
He was undergoing a nose job in Iran when the anaesthetic triggered the unfortunate reaction. The surgery was being filmed for a documentary on his life.
Erections lasting longer than four hours are deemed a medical emergency.
He’s been recovering in a hospital in Belgrade, Serbia.
“Unfortunately, I did not receive analgesics because they do not give them to patients here, so I continue to suffer,” he told media.
Ciganovic has had more than a dozen operations – three on his nose plus procedures on his lips, stomach and chin.
He believed the nose job was the final operation needed to give him the looks to shoot to international stardom, the Daily Mail reports.
“I often hear from people that I looked better before surgery.
“It was a long time ago and I’m curious: Who wouldn’t look better if they are 20 years younger?”
