Rodrigo Alves The ‘Human Ken Doll’ Talks About His Rib Removal

When you hear the name Rodrigo Alves, you might not know who it is straight away, but when you hear the name ‘Human Ken Doll’ you immediately conjure up exactly who Rodrigo Alves is. In the latest of a series of dramatic plastic surgeries, Alves has undergone a drastic procedure to have his lower ribs removed. His reason? He didn’t want to get his blazers altered. In an interview with the British program The Morning Show, the eccentric fashionista revealed that he had had to continuously get this tailor to adjust his suit blazers because they would never properly fit around his waist.

Now, with 4 of his ribs removed, Alves can fit into all the blazers he wants. He originally wanted 6 ribs removed, but he couldn’t find a surgeon in the world who would perform the procedure. Finally, he settled for 4 ribs, however, in doing so he has given himself added risk to his internal organs. Alves now wears a mens corset to give himself added support after his surgery. The procedure was carefully executed to ensure that Alves’s spine would still be protected and that minimal intrusion could be avoided to help protect his organs. Following the procedure, Alves now keeps his ribs in a jar to show off to whoever he pleases.

To date, Alves has gone under the knife so many times that it has cost him well over £500,000, which in U.S. dollars equates to over $707,000. The rich Brazilian model and personality inherited a large sum of properties, investments and money from his grandparents, including a large investment that pays for a large majority of his income to this day. When asked about his many procedures, Alves said to The Morning Show: “My advice is don’t do what I have done. I didn’t need 60 [surgeries], I might have only needed 10.” Alves also goes on to explain that, “I do not encourage others to do this but I am very happy. This has changed my life from water to wine.”

According to Alves, he is the only man in the world to have the procedure done, noting that it is a very popular procedure in Hollywood but it isn’t talked about that often. To date, Alves has had work done on his body including: botox fillers, fake six-pack transplants, over 10 nose job surgeries (which included a botched attempt that got him featured on the popular series Botched), pec implants, laser eye color adjustment, numerous liposuction procedures, calf shaping, hair transplants, and of course the current rib removal procedure.
