He never wants to look old.

He never wants to look old.

And Rodrigo Alves going to extreme lengths to make sure of it – and he doesn’t mind spending an arm and leg to do it.  

Rodrigo (34), also known as the Human Ken Doll, recently underwent a painful cosmetic face chemical peel and a phenol acid face peel session in Spain.  

The Brazilian-born TV personality, who now lives in the UK and Spain, didn’t waste time flaunting the harsh effects of the procedure.

In an interview with MailOnline, Rodrigo admitted the procedure was “fairly painful”.

“It feels like burning! Here in Marbella [Spain] is very sunny and I can’t go out for the next few days unless I have a lot of sun protection!”

According to WebMD, chemical peels can improve how your skin looks.

During the treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it blister and eventually peel off, revealing the “new” skin beneath.

Rodrigo says his ambition is to never look flawless but ageless and hopes that his skin will look “finer and younger”. 

“I would never let myself go and no one will ever see any wrinkle on my face,” he vowed, encouraging other men to take care of their faces.

According to The Sun, he has spent more than £450 000 (R7,7 million) on cosmetic procedures. In his next procedure, Rodrigo reportedly hopes to have three of his ribs removed, for “a thinner, Barbie-style waist.”

2017 has been a great year for him, he told Metro UK.

“I have been able to showcase my lifestyle and my personality on TV, although plastic surgery and my extreme makeover is what I’m primarily known for,” he said.

He has big plans for next year and says he wants to become known as “Roddy Doll or just as Rodrigo Alves”. 

“The true story is that I never wanted to be or to look like the Ken Doll but five years ago when I was called that I [decided] to have fun with it.”
