The man dubbed as 'Russian Popeye' who is known for his huge artificial biceps has ignored death warnings by doctors after he underwent surgery in order to look more like an 'alien'.
Ex-Russian soldier Kirill Tereshin has been likened to cartoon character Popeye by injecting petroleum jelly into his arms to give himself gigantic 'muscles'.
The 25-year-old has become pretty popular online and has racked up nearly a million followers on TikTok.
Although, the Russian has been forced to undergo a number corrective surgeries due to issues occurring from 'dead muscle' in his arms.
Despite the constant death warning from doctors, Tereshin has decided to have cosmetic treatment because he wants to look more like an alien.
He showed off his new look to his followers with enlarged lips, cheekbone fillers, plus shaping his lower jaw and forehead.
"I'm an ideally handsome male,” he claimed in a video.
“All stands out clearly - lips, chin, cheekbones, forehead, nose is even, lower jaw..."
He added: "I want to make an alien face.
“I have believed in aliens since I saw UFOs as a teenager.
“I know that they exist and that they are the most powerful race in the entire world.
“I feel like I'm going to them."
Tereshin, 25, has already had his fake triceps removed but has so far ignored the advice to get rid of dangerous giant implants from his biceps.
Surgeon Dmitry Melnikov warned him bluntly: “The risk of complications in this case is very high.
“But inaction will not help the patient. A toxic substance in the body long term can complicate the kidneys and lead to death.”
He confessed: “I bulked up my arms when I was 20 due to my own stupidity. I did not think about the consequences.”
Tereshin was initially persuaded to 'save his life' and remove the implants by Alana Mamaeva, 33, a campaigner for victims of botched plastic surgery, who was formerly married to Russian football star Pavel Mamaev.
After having the tricep surgery, he said he was 'very afraid' about going under the knife to remove the hardened jelly from his biceps and has evidently not done so.
