Alves is known for his striking appearance as he’s undergone some 60 cosmetic surgeries, and hundreds of other aesthetic procedures to form his look.
He’s previously had over 3,000 hair follicles transplanted to his forehead and then platelet rich plasma injected into his forehead to stimulate growth.
The 35-year-old previously said that the most obvious impact surgeries are having are on his hair.
“I’ve 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.
