A 23-year-old bodybuilder in Russia, nicknamed “papayas” because of his abnormally large biceps, recently underwent the first of three operations to remove about 3 pounds of “dead” muscle tissue after injecting a dangerous gain substance – Synthol – into his biceps and triceps .

The operation was performed by Dr. Dmitry Melnikov, who, according to the Post, estimated that Tereshin injected three liters – about 100 ounces – of a substance similar to petroleum jelly into his hands.

He added: “We saw how petroleum jelly was injected into the chest, buttocks and other parts of the female body,” he said. “We warn that this is extremely dangerous.”
Synthol oil is purely cosmetic; it makes the muscles “swell” and look bigger than they really are. The substance is injected deep into the muscles and usually consists of oil, benzyl alcohol and lidocaine, according to a 2009 review on the use of Synthol in bodybuilding.
