The man who describes himself as a “Human Ken Doll” is recovering in a hospital in Malaga, Spain, following a recent nose job that left him with a flesh-eating bacteria infection.
The London-based flight attendant, Rodrigo Alves, 32, has reportedly spent around $250,000 on more than 42 plastic surgeries to transform him from average Joe to something resembling a childhood toy.
Rodrigo’s body has undergone extensive redesign and trauma from face to abs.
A few months ago, Rodrigo had an operation on his nose, and this time things went horribly wrong.
Speaking from the hospital to Daily Star he said, “I had a nose reconstruction three months ago, and it seems like the new cartilage has been rejected by my body."
He added, "It's terrible, and I am trying to go back to London as soon as possible for help."
"It got harder and harder to breath, and now my nose in completely blocked," he told the paper. "A horrible hole has appeared in my nose, and the infection is eating it. If it does not stop, it could eat my whole face. I am very worried."
According to Us Magazine, Alves has a degree in public relations and speaks five languages.
A month ago, he told the Daily Mirror, “I was born in the wrong body. My soul never matched up with the rest of me, and now it does. ”
“I never set out to look like Ken. But people have increasingly commented on how similar we are. I’m happy with my look but I will continue with surgery.”
