You’ve probably heard of this guy before. He pops up every now and then in the news, and somehow he’s one of those people that you don’t want to look at but can’t look away. He just really makes you say, “Huh???” He’s spent over half a million dollars on plastic surgery because he wants to look like a dang Ken doll…
Rodrigo Alves is his real name and he’s actually a plastic surgeon himself, so I wonder if he’s gotten all his work at a discount too? Anyways he became addicted to his craft at age 19 and he’s lost count of how many surgeries he’s had. He’s had 8 nose jobs and that doesn’t even make sense.
Honestly he looks like a Jim Carrey character. I sure hope this isn’t an elaborate prank.
He’s now revealing his only regret that thinks about daily it seems. He talked to DailyMail about it:
“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.”
If you’re wondering what he’s talking about, we have to go back a few months. Rodrigo had four ribs removed which went viral and it seems that a guy needs all the ribs he was given.
Before the surgery he told Barcroft:
“I am my own person, I am my own brand and it feels good to be an individual as well. Having the ribs removed is just a small fraction of it.
I didn’t have any plastic surgery to please anybody rather than myself and I never had plastic surgery to have the attention from the media or the press. It was an accident.”
He has to wear that corset all the time now though after the surgery. Please sit down to read this next part. The corset cost Rodrigo $39,000. Yeah I still don’t get it.
I wonder if he still feels like an individual, gonna go with nope. He went onto The DailyMail:
“I only look smaller when I’ve got it on. As soon as I take it off, I feel like I am back to normal.”
He also claims he’s done with plastic surgery, so I guess the ribs being “a fraction” was false.
“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.”
“This experience has made me think a lot and made me analyse myself and the decisions I’ve made in the past.”
Yeah sounds good, but I’m not sure this is the last we have heard from the human Ken Doll! If you want to not miss anything from Rodrigo make sure you follow him on Instagram!
