One plastic surgery too many: Human Ken Doll admitted in hospital with 'rotting nose'

17 April 2016 / 6 months 2 weeks ago

Brazilian airline steward Rodrigo Alves has dedicated his life to transforming himself into a human Ken doll through plastic surgery.

He was admitted to hospital after his new nose started to rot on his face.

The 32-year-old suffers from body dysmorphic disorder, reports UniLad.

He has spent over SGD$543,000 (USD$400,000) on surgery.

But he has also admitted that he is ‘deeply unhappy’ with his looks.

He has now been diagnosed with necrosis as his flesh is apparently unable to withstand his 42 cosmetic operations.

He is being treated for the condition in Spain, after he noticed a hole appearing on his nose.

But doctors fear Rodrigo’s face is at risk of becoming gangrenous if the necrosis is allowed to spread.

He said: "I had nose reconstruction three months ago and it appears the new cartilage has been rejected by my body.

"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."

Necrosis is actually a relatively common hazard of plastic surgery, caused when the blood supply to parts of the body is interrupted.
