Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves to have six ribs removed in 60th surgery

December 29, 2017

Rodrigo Alves, known around the world as ‘Human Ken Doll’, is set to have his most terrifying surgery to date as he goes under the knife for a 60th time.

The Brazilian born plastic surgery obsessive wants to have six ribs removed in the quest for the beauty.

He believes the highly dangerous procedure will will help him feel more confident in couture blazers, after concerns his physique had become “shapeless and big”.

However doctors have refused to perform the surgery in full, saying the risks are too great.

Instead, a top Hollywood surgeon will remove four floating ribs in a £28,000 procedure set to take place next month to give the jet-setter an “elegant and classic figure”.

He told MailOnline: “I was frustrated at first because I really want to be able to fit back into my four breast blazers as before but removing two extra ribs could compromise my lungs, and my doctors must be very careful that my health is not compromised.

“They said a big no to that and said that safety always come first. Aesthetically speaking the results will be the same as if six ribs were removed. The visual impact will be the same.

“My life shall be changed forever as from January 2018 and by summer 2018 I will be looking like a fitness model.”

Rodrigo, who has splashed almost half a million pounds on surgeries to date, says he realises the 60th operation comes with big risks.

He explained: “It will be my surgery number 60 between countless procedures but I’m nervous yes because this is not a plastic surgery where skin or fat will be removed, we are talking about my floating ribs.

“I have being advised by all the doctors that it is a safe procedure but it is unknown to the public because people that have it done don’t talk about it.

“Having ribs removed isn’t plastic surgery. It is a real surgery where the doctors will be changing the shape on my mid body to a very small size.

“I’m very much image conscious and I love my fashion. The rib removal will change my body shape quite dramatically and the results will be seen instantly.

“Afterwards that I won’t be bursting in my slim fit blazers anymore. I shall gain a very elegant and classic figure.”

The decision comes despite vowing never to go under the knife again just months ago after a shock detention by Dubai immigration police.

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

His 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.”
