“Human Ken Doll” Rodrigo Alves revealed that he has had four ribs removed as he continues his mission to attain the “perfect” body.
Appearing on This Morning, Alves told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that he underwent the surgery so that he can wear the blazers he wants without having to get them altered.
He added that he now has a 20-inch waist, and originally wanted to have six ribs taken out.

“I visited three different doctors – two in Europe and one in America,” he said. “They said I can only do four [ribs].
“I chose the best doctor. I had the procedure. I’m very happy.
“[I wanted to] express myself through fashion. My blazers have to be altered. I had to always have a bigger blazer and get it altered. I had four ribs removed so that I can do up my blazers without having to breathe in or have my blazers altered.
“I have a 20-inch waist now. It can be a dangerous procedure, absolutely.”
The surgery was his 60th cosmetic procedure in total. Rodrigo has now spent £508,000 (which is over $700,000) on cosmetic surgery.
“I’m 34 years old. I’m going to be 35 in July,” he said. “It’s been a long journey for me.
“I love the way I look. I like to stand out. I never had plastic surgery to look ordinary or look like a Ken Doll! I’m perfect to my eyes. I love the way I look and I love myself.”
