‘I want to live as a woman’: Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves spends thousands on surgery
The human Ken doll has hinted that he may become a human Barbie doll.
Rodrigo Alves has revealed he wants to “grow old as a woman” and is now plashing out thousands on surgery.
The reality star and cosmetic surgery enthusiast is now looking to “feminise” his look as he seeks to live as a woman.
Rodrigo has undergone 59 cosmetic surgeries and hundreds of other aesthetic procedures to form his look.
He had over 3,000 hair follicles transplanted to his forehead and then platelet rich plasma injected into his forehead to stimulate growth.
Rodrigo is desperate for a more ‘womanly hairline’ as he changes his look, but wants to avoid ending up like Caitlyn Jenner.
Rodrigo told The Mirror: “I don’t want to age as an old man, I’d like to grow old as a woman, I’m 34-years-old and am happy with who I am, but when I reach my 50s I could live as a woman.
“I am happy looking how I am for the moment but I don’t want to age looking as a plastic modified man, I want the best of both worlds.
“When I get older I think it would be pleasant to see what it’s like, it’s nothing to do with sex or the sexuality part of the experience.
“My motive is not based on sexuality or wanting to have a sex change, it’s to do with life experience.
“I travel the world, I party and I would like to experience living as a woman someday too.
“Half of my life has been spent going through modifications to become a Human Ken Doll and I think my transition would be through hormones.
“I’m continuing to feminise my appearance slowly rather than doing everything at once like Caitlyn Jenner.”
The television personality hinted to Italian media that he aspires to have surgery on the one part of his body that remains untouched.
He reiterated this sentiment while talking to the Daily Mail.
“One day when I’m older I may have a sex change and become a Barbie,” he said.
However, the star admitted that his addiction to his appearance is taking a toll and requires constant attention.
“Being a live human Ken Doll has never been easy.
“It takes constant maintenance. Bits fall off and need repairing now and again,” he said.
The 34-year-old added that the most obvious impact surgeries are having are on his hair.
“O have had two hair implants and I’m due to have another one in a few weeks, simply because I was not born this way.”
Because of the effects, Alves is starting to see the physical affects his lifestyle is having, he has made a conscious decision to stop having some of the procedures he regularly relies on, such as liposuction.
“I’m saying goodbye to liposuction. I’m not saying that I won’t have another facelift when I want to or hen I need to, I’m just changing my lifestyle which means a good diet and for the first time in my life, facing the gym,” he said.
According to The Sun, Alves has splashed out on a long list of surgeries, including: £8,000 on Botox and fillers, £30,000 on nose jobs, £3,000 on liposuction to his jaw, £10,000 on pec implants, £22,000 on a fake six-pack, £7,000 on fillers to his arms, £5,000 hair transplant, £7,000 on laser lipo, £6,000 on leg lipo and £3,000 on calf shaping.
Despite the health risks from his numerous surgeries, he strongly denies having an addiction issue.

In fact, Alves, who inherited a fortune from his grandparents, thinks it’s impossible to be addicted.
“No one can get addicted to plastic surgery,” he insisted in a TV interview. “There’s no such thing.”
The plastic surgery regular woke up to find his veneers shattered and on the pillow of his bed.
Rodrigo claims that a group of women befriended him on a night out, then put a string of pricey drinks on his bar tab without permission, leaving him with a bill of over €600.
