NANTES, France, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- A French doctor whose penis enlargement procedure left a patient with an "irregularity" in his sexual organ was suspended by a disciplinary board.
The board heard the doctor, whose name was not released, admitted to using too much botox during the July 2013 procedure in Nantes and he refunded the patient's $1,267 payment for the enlargement.
However, the patient, who sought medical attention for an "irregularity" he noticed in his flaccid penis after the procedure, filed a formal complaint and the case went before a disciplinary board Sept. 8.
The board suspended the doctor's medical license for two months. The ruling said the same physician had previously been called before the board for a similar case.
Herve Le Corre, the doctor's lawyer, unsuccessfully argued the doctor should not be suspended because the problems with the procedure were merely aesthetic in nature.
"It was at the pressing demand of the patient that the procedure occur rapidly," Le Corre said. "The bad aesthetic result of the procedure shouldn't give rise to a disciplinary sanction."
