After Many Surgeries, Man Decides He No Longer Wants To Go Under The Knife

A man from Brazil is trying to shake his addiction to plastic surgery after his surgically modified nose began falling off while he took a vacation in Spain. The man in question, 33-year-old Rodrigo Alves, has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on more than 40 different plastic surgery operations and cosmetic enhancement procedures.

According to American Web Media (AWM), the most important thing in Mr. Alves’ life is becoming as similar as he can to a Ken Doll. The man’s commitment to his dream has prompted Brazilian media outlets to name him the Human Ken Doll.

However, Mr. Alves’ plans might be in tatters after he developed a dangerous infection in his nose while holidaying on the Spanish coast. A key part of Mr. Alves’ remarkable physical transformation were several rhinoplasty operations.

Rhinoplasty surgery, commonly known as a nose job, is a procedure that is used to reshape the bridge and structure of the nose. These procedures are often used to correct irregular nasal functions. However, nose jobs can also be used to create more aesthetically pleasing nose shapes.

After Mr. Alves’ sixth rhinoplasty operation, the Brazilian man decided to relax and recover on the Spanish coast. Unfortunately, the man’s holiday didn’t go as planned, and he was forced to seek urgent medical attention when he noticed a hole forming in his nose.

After being rushed to a Malaga hospital, Mr. Alves was diagnosed with necrosis – a condition that is caused by limited blood supply and can lead to tissue death. Because of Mr. Alves’ multiple nose operations, the tissue structure and blood supply was highly disrupted, leading to a case of necrosis.

When doctors told Mr. Alves that his condition was causing gangrene, the Brazilian – terrified that he would lose his nose – asked the doctor if they could save his nose with another rhinoplasty surgery.

The doctor reluctantly confirmed that this might work, prompting Mr. Alves to undergo a seventh nose job. Using cartilage and tissue from his wrist, doctors were able to reinforce Mr. Alves’ nose and return blood flow to the tissue.

After this incident, Mr. Alves has sworn that he will stop going under the knife for cosmetic purposes. “I’ve decided to make most of the treatments that do not involve surgery, and I would only have another plastic surgery again if it was for emergency medical reasons which was the recent case of my nose,” he said.

“But I’ve not stopped having aesthetic treatments, there are so many non-invasive treatments on the market that can replace surgery.”

Nevertheless, it’s clear that Mr. Alves is still committed to becoming a human Ken Doll. “I’m not giving up on trying to stop the natural aging process,” he told AWM. “Lately I have been trying everything, I’ve had Radiofrequency therapy and cavitation in my back and legs.”

“I’m due to have more hair implants soon, and I’ve had an injection of stem cells in my blood and the latest Lipoglaze fat-freezing technology on my thighs, hips and waist,” he continued.

“I want to look nice in my swimming trunks. This really bothers me, even after having liposuction there is something that I need contouring and I don’t want to have liposuction ever again.”
