There is so much that people can do only to feel good in their skin. After revealing that he spent $490,000 on plastic surgery, Rodrigo Alves is no longer interested in having gastric bypass. It looks like the Brazilian Ken doll had a change of heart after looking at himself in the mirror and liking what he saw. Alves eventually decided not to have a gastric bypass, which would have helped him lose weight by changing the size of his stomach.
Instead of the costly procedure, he decided to keep working out at the gym to maintain his physique. The 34-year-old has also opened up about his desire to settle down and finally find love.
The surgery-addict has spent $490,000 on his cosmetic procedures, because he was born in the wrong body.
He said to MailOnline:
“The problem is not my clothes being too tight, it’s my body. I need to lose two stone in two weeks. I want to do this the natural way now. I want to do what everyone else does.”
The Brazilian has also revealed he is no longer going to rely on liposuction for a good physique. This news is partly due to the damage he has inflicted from the previous surgeries.
Alves has stated he never intends on getting old, as ‘one only looks old if one wants to’.
After almost 60 surgeries, he is reportedly satisfied with his looks.
Speaking of the gastric surgery, he said:
“The side effects can be really bad, especially for someone like me doing it for cosmetic reasons.”
Chilling at home, working on a super new diet and now started to go to the gym I guess that the on line anonymous trolls won me over on that 💪🏼🙄 I am also detoxing and saving my liver for my #dubai trip in few days #diet #gymbunny #marbella #lifestyle #jetsetter #worldtraveller #home #puertobanus #summer #detoxing #dxb #uae coming up soon! #australiangold #goldenboy #blonde #beauty
“In the past, each time when I was overweight or when my fashionable favourite 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.”
Fibrosis is actually a damaged tissue that can be very harmful to the body.
Alves is still not afraid of going under the knife, as he has a procedure to top up hair implants in Los Angeles.
The human Ken doll seems to be on a good path. Doctors recently warned him his nose might fall off if he keeps up the surgeries.
