From time to time most of us would have contemplated plastic surgery. It’s just one of those things.
While most of us admit it’s something we wouldn’t have done to ourselves, we still think about what we could have done.
Most people think about having their nose changed, or having a face lift, or even having a tummy tuck. But just because you think about it doesn’t mean it’s going to happen.
I think about ordering a salad whenever I got to McDonald’s but I know I’m never going to do it.
“Botched” is a reality TV show with a massive following.
It’s a show where they try and find the remedy to plastic surgery mistakes.
The reasons people go onto the show are far and wide, they cold be going onto the show because they have horns on their head, they look like a blow-up doll, or they genuinely need help repairing burn marks and other scars.
However, each show showcases a few odd patients who have dabbled with too much plastic surgery. They usually go on the show because they want to get something insanely stupid and over the top.
One of the most famous clients is Rodrigo Alves, also known as the ‘Human Ken Doll’.
Rodrigo is infamous for spending shocking amounts of money on various cosmetic surgical procedures in the quest to find perfection.
Rodrigo was born in Brazil, but now travels around the world as a flight attendant.
The Human Ken Doll has had chest implants, a number of butt lifts, ten nose jobs, hair implants, and even an artificial eight pack!
So far, all of his cosmetic procedures have totalled an astounding $500,000.
Rodrigo believes that there is an unfair taboo attached to plastic surgery, a taboo that he aims to tear down!
But it looks like this 34 year old could be shunning cosmetic surgery and turning to a natural approach!
From our perspective, it seems like Rodrigo has a pretty relaxed lifestyle.
He flies all over the world in jets and is invited to glamorous events. He’s really living life in the fast lane!
But it just goes to show you that everything isn’t how it seems. There’s something that has been making him more than a little anxious.
“I have been stuffing my face like crazy and I’ve gained more weight than ever!”
That’s right, the Human Ken Doll is worried about gaining weight, which could damage his flawless Ken Doll image.
“I have been suffering from anxiety lately which lead me to gain nearly over forty pounds in weight and all my outfits are feeling really tight”
So, what is Rodrigo doing about his weight gain? Is he going to resort to plastic surgery?
No, he’s decided to turn to healthy living and going to the gym.
Gastric bypass procedures aren’t only hugely expensive, but also very risky.
But Rodrigo has also has enough of liposuction.
“I’m now planning a gastric bypass surgery in September since my body can’t handle lipos anymore.
“In the past, each time when I was overweight or when my fashionable favorite outfit didn’t fit me I would just book and have an invasive lipo – but my body reached a stage where it is full of fibrosis which makes the procedure risky.”
The plastic surgery fanatic has decided to put his health ahead of his look, and decided that natural remedies are the best way to go for this particular problem.
“The side effects can be really bad, especially for someone like me doing it for cosmetic reasons.”
But, if you think Rodrigo is giving up plastic surgery for good then your very wrong!
He’s all set to get another hair implants later this year.
However the Human Ken Doll has to be very careful not to overdo it with the plastic surgery.
He’s already been told by doctors that there’s a danger his nose may fall off if he doesn’t stop with the nose jobs!
Aside from becoming his ideal of perfection, Rodrigo is set on settling down and finding the one for him.
I really hope that Rodrigo manages to find happiness and love, but I also hope his nose doesn’t fall off!
