Yup, read that title again…
Argentinian Doctor Arrested WHILE Performing Penis Enlargement Surgery… ON HIMSELF!
I swear, people, I can’t make this stuff up! 🙂
A plastic surgeon, Carlos Gustavo Arzuza, 48, was arrested on suspicion of causing the death of a woman during a botched procedure – while performing penis enlargement surgery on himself. Arzuza was in his private clinic in the city of Mendoza, in the western Argentine province of the same name.
Arzuza had performed liposuction and a buttock implant on 49-year-old Beatriz Gattari, who died shortly afterwards of problems believed to be associated with the procedure. An autopsy confirmed the suspicion of malpractice. Sadly, this isn’t the most interesting thing about this story, as Arzuza had been investigated in 2013 after another patient, Roberto del Barco, had died from cardio and respiratory failure, during a liposuction procedure, when Arzuza was accused of failing to administer the correct anesthesia.
What WAS unique was that as police went into the clinic to arrest Arzuza, they were startled to find out he was in the middle of penis enlargement surgery… ON HIMSELF!
It’s unclear what stage of the operation the authorities found Arzuza or even if police let him finish, but he was taken to the hospital. Arzuza should be thankful! Prosecutors have closed the unregistered clinic, noting it doesn’t meet hygiene standards.
