They say it takes all kinds to make a world, and Rodrigo Alves—also known as “the Human Ken Doll”—certainly fills an unusual niche.
Alves, 34, has long struggled with issues related to his appearance and has had something on the order of 60 plastic surgeries and over 100 cosmetic procedures to radically transform his face and body. (“Human Ken Doll” is actually a pretty fair approximation.)
Alves, who has paid over $700,000 for his various procedures, voiced concerns during his recent time in Miami Beach that his hard-partying lifestyle was harming him, and possibly fatally damaging his liver.
“People think I’m a perfect boy, living a quiet life, but I am always out partying. It can be very lonely traveling around the globe and staying in hotel rooms,” Alves said. “So I like to go out and meet new people, but it’s meant I’m drinking excessively. I work hard and try to live my life to the max. But I spend a lot of time hungover and sometimes I wish I had a quiet night.”
