These days, plastic surgery is more common than ever. In fact, there were more than 17.5 million cosmetic procedures performed in the United States alone in 2017. But while some people opt for Botox or a little nip and tuck here and there, others take it to the extreme, completely transforming their appearance in the process. Rodrigo Alves is the latter.
At just 35 years old, Alves has spent the last two decades transforming himself into what he considers the ideal man. He’s spent nearly $1 million on cosmetic procedures and is often referred to as the “Human Ken doll.”
The Road to Perfection Isn’t Easy
With over 772,000 Instagram followers, Alves’ life has become a spectacle — but his fame has come at a cost. He’s been diagnosed with body dysmorphia, a mental disorder where an individual can’t stop thinking about their appearance and has put himself at serious risk to undergo countless extensive surgeries.
Alves isn’t done yet either. He has plans for more plastic surgery sooner rather than later. Take a look at Rodrigo Alves the Human Ken Doll’s journey to perfection.
