Rodrigo Alves has spent fifteen years shaping himself into the living image of Barbie’s dimpled, smooth crotched boyfriend Ken.
However, after being detained at Dubai airport due to his face no longer matching his human-featured passport picture, our doll faced hero is seriously re-evaluating his life.
He has now made a solemn vow never go under the scalpel again, except for work on his ‘bones and structure’.
This still counts as plastic surgery in my book but, hey, who am I to disagree with a guy who has had not one but eight nose jobs.
The 34-year-old began his plastic surgery addiction at the age of just nineteen, and has since clocked up £373,000 on sculpting his distinctive look.
However, after his Dubai disaster, Roddy will stop tweaking his face for good… or at least until his passport gets updated.
The jet setting celebrity spoke about his very unique identity crisis with MailOnline:
This experience has made me think a lot and made me analyse myself and the decisions I’ve made in the past.
But I can’t change them, so from now on it will be constant maintenance, maintenance.
As anyone who has ever had an ill advised haircut will know, the decisions we make in the name of beauty often come back to haunt us. However, this silicone socialite takes makeover days to a much greater extreme than most…
Rodrigo also hinted at new start in his life, where he will ‘become something else’:
The kind of changes I’ll be undergoing from now on won’t be plastic surgery as such but rather procedures that focus on my bones and structure.
It took me 15 years to become the Rodrigo Alves that you see today, now I have few more years to become something else. I just get bored of the same old look and I like to challenge myself.

I’d like to believe Rodrigo is finally happy enough with himself to stop changing his appearance for five minutes, but I wouldn’t put money on it.
Could we about to see the launch of a new, au natural Ken?
