“HUMAN Ken Doll” Rodrigo Alves is known for his plastic surgeries and his ever-changing style.
But how much has he spent on cosmetic procedures, and what did he look like before? Here’s the lowdown…
Who is Rodrigo Alves and what’s his background?
Rodrigo Alves, 34, is known as the “Human Ken Doll” thanks to his love of cosmetic surgery and he has spent more than £373,000 on various procedures.
Rodrigo currently lives in London but also divides his time between his properties in both LA and Marbella.
The Brazilian is known for his style and fashion choices and has even featured om GQ and Vogue thanks to his unique dressing.
Over the years, he has reinvented him self via plastic surgery and claimed in an interview on This Morning that he was born in the wrong body.
So far, the surgery addict has had 51 plastic surgeries and 103 cosmetic procedures – leading to his nickname “The Human Ken Doll”.
Now he is looking to have a sex change and turn into a real-life Barbie.
Currently, Rodrigo is said to be filming his very own reality TV show in the UK and was featured on Botched!.
What is Rodrigo Alves’ aim?
Rodrigo says that, when it comes to making media appearances, his aim is to educate people about plastic surgeries and various aesthetic procedures.
He also hopes to “break the taboo” that surrounds cosmetic enhancements – in doing so he hopes to help shed light on the pros and cons of going under the knife.
He recently opened up The Sun Online about his years of surgical procedures and how he wished people would respect his “courage and bravery” for them.
So far, Rodrigo has appeared on 56 TV shows across the world, as well as various conferences, to share his message.
Why was the Human Ken Doll held at Dubai airport?
On September 21, 2017 it was reported that Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves was held at Dubai airport for three hours because his face no longer matches his passport photo.
The 34-year-old ran into trouble when trying to enter the Middle East because he looks so different to the man he once was.
The plastic surgery lover, who is in Dubai for the opening of a new hotel and club called Base, was held for three hours while trying to get to the bottom of his identity.
A source told The Sun Online: “Rodrigo totally understood why he was stopped and thinks the whole thing was dealt with professionally and with respect.
“He’s just happy to be allowed in for the opening of a new club where he is a guest of honour.”
Is the Human Ken Doll becoming Barbie?
Rodrigo has revealed he is going to get six ribs removed after he vowed to have a sex change.
The plastic surgery addict is jetting off to Los Angeles to get them taken out, after admitting on Italian TV he wants to have a sex change to become Barbie.
He will have three removed from either side of his rib cage so he can have a thinner waist.
Although he is getting the rib surgery, he says he would not go through with the sex change until his late 50s.
What cosmetic procedures has Rodrigo Alves had?
Rodrigo first decided to go under the knife in 2004 – after a childhood of struggling with his self-image.
His long list of surgery includes:
- £8,000 on Botox and fillers
- £30,000 on nose jobs
- £3,000 on liposuction to his jaw
- £10,000 on pec implants.
- £22,000 on a fake six-pack
- £7,000 on fillers to his arms
- £5,000 hair transplant
- £7,000 on laser lipo
- £6,000 on leg lipo
- £3,000 on calf shaping
- Fat transfer to give him a “Brazillian” bum
- A SMAS facelift
What is a SMAS facelift?
A SMAS lift generally refers to any facelift technique that tightens the SMAS (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer, as well as the skin on top of it, into a a more ‘youthful’ position.
The SMAS tissue weighs more than the skin itself and can weigh down skin, cuasing it to slacken.
A SMAS facelift treats the deepest two thirds of the face and the surgeon strives to create a result which is as natural-looking as possible.
Results of a SMAS facelift are usually visible after two to three months.
Rodrigo isn’t adverse to “topping up” his facial fillers and Botox – and he was snapped earlier this year enduring a whopping THREE HOURS of injections.
For his most recent bout of surgery, the Human Ken Doll marked his 34th birthday with his TENTH rhinoplasty surgery – as well as having an operation to give him eyes like a CAT.
What did Rodrigo Alves look like before his surgery?
Rodrigo had first nose job at 19 and carried on from there.
Older photos of Rodrigo show a much fuller faced and less lean physique – all of which have now been “improved” upon by Rodrigo.
He said: “Male perfection is to me having symmetry. So a chiselled face, broad shoulders, a lean figure, a prominent jaw line, defined abs and a chest in proportion.
“I have had a hair implant, a brow lift, eye lifts, my ears pinned back, cheeks redesigned, my jawline shaped, I’ve had cheek implants twice, the sides if my lips cut out in order to give me a bigger wider smile. I have had fillers injected into my shoulders, biceps, triceps, my abs – my six pack is purely plastic surgery.
“I have the most beautiful six pack.”
What is Rodrigo Alves’ net worth?
He is originally from Sao Paulo in Brazil but due to his family background he holds British nationality.
Rodrigo comes from an European family who immigrated to Brazil in the 40s to start a farming business which then expanded and developed to included shopping centres, supermarkets and property.
He is heir of several properties in Puerto Banus, that he rents to holiday makers, and also has a steady generous monthly pension left to him by his grandparents – leaving Rodrigo financially secured for life.
While it is unknown what Rodrigo Alves’ net worth is, a massive inheritance that he received from his grandfather has helped the near £400,000 he has spent on cosmetic surgeries.
He also makes money via a rental property he owns in Puerto Banus, Spain and used to work as an air steward.
