I realize that plastic surgery is pretty common these days, but this guy has maybe taken things just a little too far in that department. Meet Rodrigo Alves.
He’s called the “Human Ken Doll” because of how much plastic surgery he’s had. The 34-year-old Alves has spent a whopping $700,000 on dozens of cosmetic procedures.
Alves recently appeared on a British talk show to discuss his 60th operation: the removal of four of his ribs so he can have a 20-inch waist. Alves said he had the surgery because he wants to “express myself through fashion. My blazers have to be altered. I had to always have a bigger blazer and get it altered. I had four ribs removed so that I can do up my blazers without having to breathe in or have my blazers altered.”
People on Twitter shared their thoughts on the bizarre and fascinating story.
What do you think? Watch the video of Alves on the talk show discussing his “journey.”
