(Scroll down for video) A man of the United Kingdom, who spent nearly $250,000 to look like the Ken doll, nearly died after his body rejected his fourth nose.
28-year-old Rodrigo Alves of London, who works as a flight attendant, spent $190,000 on nose jobs, fillers, Botox, six-pack implants and liposuction in order to look like Ken.
Earlier this year, Alves spent an additional $75,000 for his fourth nose job, an eye operation, toe straightening, liposuction and an incision to cut his mouth to have a broader smile.
After having the procedure, a hole appeared in his nose due to deadly necrosis. Necrosis is the death of most or all of the cells in an organ or tissue due to illness, injury, or failure of the blood supply.
Doctors said that it seems that the new nose has been rejected by his body. Alves is currently in Spain, and is looking forward to get back to London to expert care.
He complained that his breathing has gotten worse in the last three days, and his nose is completely blocked. An infection is eating up his nose, and doctors warned him that if the infection is not stopped, it could eat up his face.
Alves revealed that he is very upset and worried, but he is not blaming his doctors because he understands that surgeries are risky.
Alves said that he hopes to get a new nose job when his infection goes away.
