Man attempts to perform nose job... on himself

Unable or unwilling to get it done professionally, one Brazilian man decided to take matters into his own hands.
There are a lot of skills that you can learn by looking up a guide on the Internet, but performing complex surgical procedures definitely isn't one of them.

This didn't deter one adventurous individual from Brazil earlier this month, however, when he decided to attempt plastic surgery on his own nose using nothing but household items and a video he found on YouTube.

Unsurprisingly, it wasn't long before he ended up in hospital.

According to doctors at the Campo Limpo Emergency Care Unit, the man's wound had become infected because he hadn't worn any gloves and his makeshift tools were not sterilized.
He had seemingly dosed himself up on veterinary anesthetic, attempted to disinfect the area with rubbing alcohol and had used superglue to close the wound afterward.

Fortunately, doctors were able to clean up and sort the wound to prevent further problems, however it remains unclear whether or not the man was satisfied with the result of his efforts.

The incident has been used to highlight the dangers of attempting surgical procedures on yourself - especially those relying upon DIY plastic surgery videos on YouTube.

The man was in fact quite fortunate to still be alive.

Well that sounds like the worst idea ever. But then again i shattered my nose in january and placed it all myself. The doctors were impressed they kept asking how i fixed it. I just pushed it around and shaped it to look like it used to. Cutting your face open though... Whoa. I need to see the nose that guy was that desperate to change.

The only odd part of this story is it didn't begin with these immortal words: "A Florida man..."

My worst idea ever was the at-home self-lobotomy kit.  Still have a few hundred left so look for it on E-Bay
