Thursday Sep 7, 2017

A Croatian stylist and reality TV star says he suffered an odd side-effect after undergoing a nose job: A permanent erection, according to The Daily Mail.

Neven Ciganovic, 45, was being filmed for a documentary at the time he discovered the anesthetic he was given during the procedure triggered his the painful condition.

"I was in Iran for rhinoplasty for the documentary film which is covering my life," he explained to The Daily Mail. "[During the surgery] I was given general anesthesia and I reacted badly to it."

Ciganovic said he was diagnosed with priapism - an unwanted and long-lasting erection that is extremely painful and not caused by sexual stimulation - during the procedure. The Daily Mail writes if priapism isn't treated within 24 hours, the penis can be preeminently damaged and could cause erectile dysfunction.

The stylist said he recovered in a hospital in Belgrade, Serbia but he refused painkillers.

"I've resided in Belgrade hospital since Friday," Ciganovic told the newspaper. "Unfortunately, I did not receive analgesics because they do not give them to patients here, so I continue to suffer. I have to be at the hospital for a further five days."

He added he underwent another operation to help relieve his priapism and that it'll take a number of months before he returns to normal.

The Daily Mail reports Ciganovic has gone under more than a dozen plastic surgeries, including three nose jobs as well as procedures for his lips, stomach and chin. He said his latest nose job was to correct his septum will help him become a star.

"I'm looking forward to a movie about myself," Ciganovic explained. "The film crew dedicated a whole episode about me. I think this is a big deal and I hope this is the start of my international career."

    Who the hell would go to Iran for a nose job? Well, I guess this egotistical fool. He went to a hospital where he said he refused pain meds then said the hospital doesn’t give painkillers? Make up your mind, boy. His nose is so malformed it reminds me of the last nose Michale Jackson was sporting. He wants to be famous by being infamous. This guy needs some serious, long lasting mental therapy.
