Rodrigo Alves is known as the human Ken doll and with good reason. He has spent thousands of dollars and years upon years trying to get his face and body to look ‘perfect.’ The 33-year-old man has had operations and procedures done all over his body including his face and abs.
But on an episode of Botched, Rodrigo was informed by his doctors that there was a part of his body that he could no longer ‘enhance.’
Doctors informed him that they could no longer look into his nostrils since there was no skin left and his nose could potentially fall off.
Over the past 12 to 15 months, Rodrigo has had three separate procedures performed on his nose. His goal is to make his nose (and the rest of his body) ‘perfect.’
And this isn’t even the first time Rodrigo has had to deal with nose issues. He has since lost the ability to breathe through his nostrils and has even developed an infection.
The Brazilian native stated that he developed an MSRA infection from the result of staph bacteria. The two doctors, Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow, say that this is one of the toughest complications that they have faced.
According to Doctor Nassif, he said: ‘this is one of the worst results and complications that I’ve seen in my entire career.’
Rodrigo has spent nearly half a million dollars on a wide variety of procedures and has a set of silicone abs that were surgically placed on him. That procedure cost nearly 30,000 dollars!
The doctors have warned him that there is no longer any skin inside the airway of the nose. And due to the string of surgeries over the past three month, this has led to further scarring.
The doctors warn that if Rodrigo continues on with getting procedures done on his nose it could very likely revert the healing process and ‘turn back and then die.’
According to Dr. Nassif: ‘if you try to insult your skin one more time now while it’s healing, there’s a high possibility that if you let one of these doctors touch your nose now, this will turn back and then die and fall off.’
