Cosmetic procedures are pretty common these days since a lot of people are unhappy about a certain part of their body. And, since they have such an easy way of rectifying that error, cosmetic surgeries are a go-to for normal folks and celebrities alike. But, you’ve never seen someone like Rodrigo Alves who looks exactly like the Ken doll. In this post, we’re going to be talking about the fascinating life of Alves and how becoming the human Ken completely changed things for him.
34-year old Rodrigo Alves from Brazil took the world by storm with his plastic surgeries and facial enhancements. He has appeared in quite a few television shows where he talked about his many modifications.
THE FIRST SURGERY
Alves had his first plastic surgery back in 2004 when he was 19 years old. Alves had a big nose and he didn’t want it to be as enormous as it was. That is why he had it shrinked down a bit.
In London, Alves was having multiple plastic surgeries. When he went back home, his family was startled to see what had happened to his face. They were really concerned and held an intervention and even persuaded Alves to visit a therapist.
Another part of his body Alves didn’t like were his eyes. Not specifically his eyes, but his eye color and surprisingly, you can get it changed in a few parts of the world. He traveled to India but due to medical reasons, the doctors rejected because it wasn’t possible to complete the surgery.
THE LIST OF SURGERIES
Gear up, this is a long list. Recently, Alves has completed several liposuctions, numerous rhinoplasty procedures, pecs implants put in, a fake six-pack done, hair transplant, calf shaping, fat transfer to his rear end, a facelift, eye lifts, eyebrow lifts, ears pulled back, chin implants, lips augmented, and more botox injections and fillers than we could keep track of.
Alves admits that he is often “bullied” because of his looks, but even with all that, he is perfectly happy with the way he looks. He idolized Disney princess and hopes to become one soon enough.
Well, you have no idea how much Alves has spent on cosmetic surgeries. The bill of his fifty surgeries racks up to more than most of us earn in a lifetime.
So, where does Alves get the money for hundreds of thousands in surgeries? At first, his only source of major earning was from the inheritance his grandparents had left him. He’s a big star now and the TV shows are probably enough to clear the bills.
Plastic surgeries are complicated procedures and that is why there’s a show called Botched that features two doctors and their attempt to repair badly done plastic surgeries. Alves will soon appear on this show to get a bad nose job repaired.
DEALING WITH COMMENTS
Alves has said on multiple occasions that comments from the haters online don’t mean anything to him. But, his actions say otherwise. For example, some folks attacked him for having a large head due to his chin implants. Shortly after, he changed his chin implant so his head wouldn’t look as big.
The definition of friendship is having people that have similar interests to yours. And Alves certainly likes being friends with other enthusiasts of plastic surgeries. He also became friends with rapper Tyga quite recently.
Alves went to Iran to get a few changes done to his teeth. A plastic surgeon broke one of his teeth during a rhinoplasty procedure. So, he got porcelain veneers put in.
VOWING OFF SURGERY
Now, Alves said that he is not going to receive any more plastic surgeries. This is because of legal trouble, the images on the official documentations are so different from his face that the legal problems were off the roof.
How can we talk about a human Ken without talking about a human Barbie? This woman named Valeria Lukyanova is a perfect embodiment of Barbie. However, unlike other people portraying cartoon characters, Valeria hasn’t received any surgeries other than a breast enlargement. Everything else is natural other from the creative makeup.
