Russian Bodybuilder Dubbed Popeye Gets Injections In His Face
Synthol-pumped bodybuilder Kirill Tereshin, better known as 'Popeye', is having injections again, but this time they're going straight into his face. Lovely.
The Russian bodybuilder recently underwent surgery to remove huge chunks of damaged flesh after years of boosting his biceps with oil. However, undeterred he's now had injections to give him more defined cheekbones.
Sharing a video of himself during the procedure, 23-year-old Kirill wrote: "I underwent treatment to reshape my cheekbones. The procedure was completely painless, and I was very pleased with the results."
I mean, at least this time he seems to be leaving it to the professionals and isn't just jamming needles into himself with reckless abandon.
In the clip, Kirill can be seen with white marks on his face, presumably to help the injector see where to put the needle.
In the next shot, a woman wearing a mask and gloves can be seen injecting right into to his cheekbones, before giving the area a little squeeze. She also seems to be messing about with his jawline.
At the end of the video we can see Kirill with his newly chiseled cheekbones as he pouts into the camera, seemingly delighted with the results.
But not everyone was on-board with his latest enhancement, with one of his social media followers asking 'why?' and another branding him 'so stupid'.
In November last year, Kirill had an operation to remove lumps of 'jelly' and 'necrotic flesh' after he was warned he could die.

Surgeon Dmitry Melnikov had to remove 'scar tissue with fragments of muscle' in a series of operations.
Following the operation, the surgeon told him: "We cannot choose in your case, I tried to explain this to you."
Speaking after the surgery Melnikov said: "The problem is that this is the petroleum jelly. You injected this so thoroughly, that it spread in the muscle and killed it.
"It was dead anyway."
Explaining the severity of Tereshin's case, Dr Melnikov added: "Petroleum jelly saturates the muscles, under skin tissues and the skin itself.
"All that has to be removed, but we need to keep the vein, nerves, and other functions of the limb.
"Petroleum jelly is not designed for injection, only external application.
"Kirill injected about three litres into each arm. It saturated the muscle tissues, blocked blood flow.
"As a result, the tissue dies and gets replaced with a scar which is as tough as a tree, you can even knock on it and hear the usual sound."
