Human Ken Doll’s New Nose Rejected After Plastic Surgery Infection
Things are going from bad to worse for the real life human ken doll, who has had 42 operations to look like the popular ken fashion doll from Mattel’s barbie doll toy collection.
Rodrigo Alves the human ken doll has spent over 305,000 British pounds the equivalent of 433,000 U.s dollars on his surgeries After his latest nasal reconstruction surgery, Rodrigo is now faced with a life threatening condition. He was recently rushed to the hospital with a condition called necrosis – the condition was brought on after his body rejected his new nose.
Necrosis is an infection that results in the death of human flesh and it has started to eat through Rodrigo’s nose. As the body’s tissue begins to die from the lack of blood supply it can trigger blood poisoning.
He told his Instagram followers that ‘A horrible hole has appeared in my nostril and the infection is eating my nose and I’ve been warned if it is not stopped it could eat into my face.”
He’s also stated that his “breathing has been getting worse for the last three days and now his nose is completely blocked.”
After the hole began to appear in his nose his new septum started to come loose as his body rejected the new nose.
The new nose cartilage was rejected by his body and Doctors say the infection is so serious it may eat through the skin of his nose in to his face. If the nose becomes gangrenous -it may have to be removed altogether.
He is now receiving antibiotics through an IV drip every eight hours. The real life ken is still not sure if doctors will have to remove his new nose or not.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first time Mr Alves has has problems with his plastic surgery. A couple of years ago he suffered serious complications from a procedure to enhance his biceps, triceps and shoulders by injecting silicone in to the area.
After the chemical leaked in to his body his body began to swell and he had to rush to the hospital to have the fluid drained from his body and he nearly died.
It’s not easy looking like a real life ken doll. All told Rodrigo’s gone through 6 nose jobs, chin implants, stomach liposuction, chest implants, fillers in the arms, a hair transplant, leg liposuction, and calf shaping. He undergoes Botox injections every 6 months as well as daily collagen pills, ultra-violet teeth whitening, hair growth pills, and anti-water retention tablets.
As for the money for all these operations, it’s come from an inheritance from his grandparents, money from rental properties, and his job with an airline company.
Sometime last year he began treatment for Body Dysmorphia. It’s an anxiety disorder that causes a person to have a distorted view of themselves. When he started the treatment he told others “I’m really hoping that that is going to help me. Help me, not to keep changing myself.”
He’s also on record telling others, he will have more cosmetic surgery as he gets older. Here’s hoping this Real life plastic surgery addict gets the help he needs, before its too late…
