He famously had four ribs removed in a bid to make his waist appear smaller – but Human Ken Doll, Rodrigo Alves, has revealed his regrets over the procedure.
The 34-year-old told MailOnline: ‘I am in pain in the evenings. It’s not unbearable but it’s on my mind and now I wonder what I was thinking.
‘I’ve been left with two scars on my back, but the worst thing is, I don’t feel any smaller than I did before.’
Rodrigo had to wear a corset at all times following his £28,000 surgery, in which he had his 11th and 12th ribs removed in a bid to try to achieve his dream 20″ waist and to fit into his form-fitting blazers.
But he said: ‘I only look smaller when I’ve got it on. As soon as I take it off, I feel like I am back to normal.’
Rodrigo has spent over £500k on plastic surgery now in a bid to make his body match his mind. He even stole his own ribs from the doctor’s surgery in LA.
But he has since turned his back on having more cosmetic work done, unless he has to have maintenance done to things he has had done before.
Despite his worries about his appearance, Rodrigo was pictured out on South Beach in Miami on Thursday, showing off his £22,000 pectoral implants.
He wore a peach coloured lace blouse, which he told MailOnline he has to wear in order to cover his scars.
Wearing it unbuttoned, as well as a pair of very small trunks, which had metal embellishments at the sides.
With his platinum locks slicked back, he wore a pair of designer shades as he topped up his golden tan.
He told MailOnline: ‘I have a bump on one side and I don’t know what that is. I need to find out. It could be a piece of floating cartilage. I don’t recommend anyone has this surgery. It is risky, it can be dangerous and the results are only shown when I wear a corset. I can’t wear a corset to go to the beach. Summer is coming soon. I can’t wear one as I will be too hot and sweaty.’
Rodrigo is currently in America, where he will be appearing on a series of television shows.
He had planned to hit the town after his day on the beach, but he got a little too much sun on his day out and told his followers he was getting an early night.
