Plastic Surgery Addict Insures Body For A Million Pounds After Nose Job Went Wrong
A plastic surgery addict who has spent more than £300,000 to look like a Ken doll has insured his body for a million pounds after one of his operations went wrong - costing him £40,000 to fix.
Brazilian-born Rodrigo Alves has gone under the knife 45 times - including liposuction, six-pack implants and botox fillers - in his desperate hunt for the perfect look.

But after the 32-year-old’s sixth nose job in February, his body rejected the donor cartilage and he was rushed to hospital after the skin started to die.
It meant he had to fork out £40,000 for a seven-hour repair op in Germany after he was left with a hole in his face.
Now, the air steward has decided to insure his body for a million pounds - at a cost of £753 a month in premiums - in case anything else goes wrong.
He said: “I’ve spent nearly £350,000 on procedures over the past 11 years and I needed some insurance.
"If I’d been covered it would have paid for my last operation.
"It makes sense really. It’s a bit like having comprehensive cover with your car insurance.”

Flamboyant Rodrigo went under the knife for the first time in 2004 after struggling with the way he looked since childhood.
Since then he has spent £8,000 on Botox and fillers, £30,000 on three nose jobs, £3,000 on liposuction to his jaw and £10,000 on pec implants.
He has also forked out £22,000 for a fake six pack, £7,000 on fillers to his arms, £7,000 on hospital bills, £7,000 on laser lipo, £6,000 on leg lipo and £3,000 on calf shaping.

Rodrigo also indulges in twice-yearly Botox and filler top-ups and takes a cocktail of daily pills consisting of collagen tablets, anti-water retention and hair growth tablets.
He has also had the skin between his inside lip and gum cut to give him a wider smile and liposuction in his legs and back which was re-injected elsewhere in a bid to make him look younger.
He added: “The fact is I have very high standards of living and I am a perfectionist in everything that I do and when it comes to my image I go an extra mile because I love my self.”
