His burial took place the day after his demise so it seems like no autopsy was done.

Who was Valdir Segato?

The Brazilian native was reportedly a construction worker. He was also quite popular on social media as ‘Valdir Synthol’. He was referred to as Valdir Synthol as he used to make use of Synthol oil to obtain an excessively bulk appearance.

Valdir hailed from Sao Paulo and then soon afterward, he moved to Ribeirão Preto and began working as a construction worker. Due to his popularity, DailyMail UK also interviewed him in October 2016.

During an earlier interaction with the media outlet, the bodybuilding enthusiast said, “They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger, and He-Man all the time and I like that. I’ve doubled my biceps, but I still want to be bigger.”

At that point in time, Segato had 23-inch biceps but then also he wasn’t satisfied with the size of his biceps and wanted to gain additional four inches through Synthol oil injections. In the past, he stated that he was inspired by the Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Comic character, The Incredible Hulk.

Valdir told the media outlet about his past and went on to say that he was a drug addict. He continued, “I got involved with drugs and I started losing weight because you don’t eat… You lead a wrong life.”

When did Valdir start using Synthol oil injections?

During his recovery phase from drugs, Segato joined gyms to get his life back on track but he wasn’t satisfied with the muscle gained via his workout routine. Then, he explored the option of Synthol oil injections.

Soon afterward, Valdir began injecting Synthol oil injections in his biceps, pectorals, and backside to acquire that extreme bulky look. The injections consisted of massive risk of strokes, infection, and amputation, but he continued with the injections till the day of his death.
