Rodrigo Alves is addicted and known for his famous plastic surgeries. He has spent more than 500k pounds on multiple surgical procedures, in order to shape his body as he wanted.
He is compared to Ken, Barbie’s boyfriend. He said that achieving his current looks wasn’t an easy task. He had to undergo various procedures, including 8 separate nose jobs. The 34-year-old started to go under the knife when he was 19.
He is also called as the ‘Human Ken doll’ because of his appearance. In spite all the fame and attention, he is now regretting one procedure he has done, and that is getting four of his ribs removed to make his waist smaller.
He said in an interview: “I am in pain in the evenings. It’s not unbearable but it’s on my mind and now I wonder what I was thinking.
“I’ve been left with two scars on my back, but the worst thing is, I don’t feel any smaller than I did before.”
The surgery also costed him a staggering 28,000 pounds and he had to wear a corset all the time after it. He did it because he was looking to have a 20” waist so that he can wear form-fitting’ blazers. He did admit that the expensive surgery isn’t worth it.
“I only look smaller when I’ve got it on,” he shared. ‘As soon as I take it off, I feel like I am back to normal.”
He has now decided to say goodbye to cosmetic surgeries, except maintenance for those he already had in the past.
He explained: “I have a bump on one side and I don’t know what that is. I need to find out. It could be a piece of floating cartilage.
“I don’t recommend anyone has this surgery. It is risky, it can be dangerous and the results are only shown when I wear a corset.
“I can’t wear a corset to go to the beach. Summer is coming soon. I can’t wear one as I will be too hot and sweaty.”
He was detained in Dubai after authorities said that he looked different from his passport picture. The incident made him reflect on all the surgeries he had so far.
