Self-styled Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves, 33, was photographed in NYC this week, wearing an lovely outfit of raspberry-red shorts, white shirt, and Gucci belt, before he jets off to India to have his eye colour permanently changed in a risky cosmetic procedure. So far, the celebutante has spent a staggering half-million dollars on 57 surgeries to achieve the perfect look. This week’s eye-color change will be his 58th.
In an exclusive interview with the MailOnline, Rodrigo explained his new surgery (which doctors in the UK and USA have refused to perform)
‘My next surgery will be a permanent eye colour change,’ he said. ‘I wear Pure Optical lenses made by an artist here in the USA. Each pair is $500 and I have 14 different colors.My natural eye colour is dark brown and I’m tired of wearing coloured lenses.’
Rodrigo is planning on getting a brand new eye colour called light icy grey.
He said: ‘Bright Ocular is now making a special eye colour implant light icy grey and the procedure will be performed next month in Delhi.
‘The procedure will also be filmed,’ Rodrigo explained.’The eye surgeon will implant the coloured implant in front of my natural iris making it icy grey forever.’
He said that the procedure would cost around £8,000.
‘Such procedure is also done in the USA and the UK but not for cosmetic reasons,’ the surgery fan added. ‘Some people who don’t have iris pigmentation can have these implants to give them an eye color. In my case it is for aesthetics reasons and there is no money on earth that would convince an eye doctor to do it in the USA or UK for cosmetic reasons.’
He added that he was flying to Delhi on the recommendation of friends: ‘Three of my friends had the procedure done and it looks amazing. From the reference I shall be visiting the same doctor in Delhi.’
Rodrigo is known for his love of extreme surgeries and in the past has indulged in liposuction, fillers, eight nose jobs and chest silicone implants as well as stem cell injections into his face and hair.
Much of his income has reportedly come from properties he inherited from his grandparents and he has invested almost £400,000 in attaining his distinctive look.
Rodrigo believes that plastic surgery will stop him aging.
‘I don’t want to age and I think that I’m doing a great job of it,’ he said.
He also defended himself against people who called him a ‘freak’.
‘People say I’m a freak and addicted to surgery. But I don’t want to look like anyone else. I want to stand out.’
