Rodrigo Alves, known around the world as the ‘Human Ken Doll’, has vowed to never has plastic surgery again.

The body obsessive has spent hundreds of thousands on changing aspects of his body.

But a shock detention by Dubai immigration police has left him scared to go under the knife again.

The plastic surgery enthusiast was prevented from entering Dubai for hours after officers questioned the authenticity of official documents.

The 34-year-old’s face is unrecognisable from ID after years of extreme cosmetic work.

He told MailOnline: “This experience has made me think a lot and made me analyse myself and the decisions I’ve made in the past.

“But I can’t change them, so from now on it will be constant maintenance, maintenance.

“The kind of changes I’ll be undergoing from now on won’t be plastic surgery as such but rather procedures that focus on my bones and structure.

“It took me 15 years to become the Rodrigo Alves that you see today, now I have few more years to become something else.

“I just get bored of the same old look and I like to challenge myself.”

Rodrigo claims he has been stopped many times in the past, too.

“I travel a lot and often I’m questioned about my identity by immigration officers in many countries – when I land at London City Airport which is a smaller airport where the immigration officers all know me,” he told the paper.

“I landed few hours ago in Dubai and when I reached the counter the immigration officer, after scanning my passport and using a face recognition machine, he politely referred me to an office where I had to sit and wait for 3 hours.

“I didn’t question what was going on because I have had the same situation when landing in NYC at JFK when I was questioned for one hour then once I told the immigration officer to look me up they all were very apologetic just saying that they were doing their job.”

He admits authorities were helpful despite the three hour wait.

The Ken Doll added: “I was very well treated by the immigration officers in dubai I didn’t questioned what was going on, for the three hours.

“I was set down at a very comfy chair and sipping a lovely Arabic Tea just waiting for then to finish their job.

“Once it was done I as called and the officer gave me British passport back with a silver stamp on it asking me to go to desk number one, where I was then let into the country.”

He was also left devastated after being ‘mugged’ and having his drink ‘spiked’ on a night out last week.

He was recently warned he must stop going under the knife due to health fears.
