‘Human Ken Doll’ Rodrigo Alves says he is no longer able to breathe properly after spending nearly $400,000 on 50 cosmetic procedures.
Speaking to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on This Morning today, Rodrigo said that having plastic surgery is “just like a domino effect”.
“July last year I had my nose reconstructed with a piece of cartilage from my ribs,” he explained. “That helped, but I still can’t breathe 100%.”
Asked why he continues to have cosmetic surgeries if it’s causing him breathing problems, Rodrigo added: “To repair. I’ve had eight nose jobs, and it’s just like a domino effect.
“Now I can’t breathe I have to undergo surgery to repair my breathing. It’s just like when you start dyeing your hair.”
He also told This Morning that “you can’t get addicted to plastic surgery”.
“It’s a constant maintenance,” he reveals. “I don’t encourage [people] to do what I did. What I do encourage is for people to better themselves, better themselves by going to the gym and also aspiring to be the best thing possible.”
“It’s a totally different person,” he said. “I would say that today my soul matches to my body. I will always say I was born in the wrong body. I was very unhappy, I was very depressed being like that.
“Thanks to plastic surgery, I became the man I am today and I regard myself as a very successful person, and very happy as well – not only physically but mentally and spiritually as well.”
