Brazilian reality television star Rodrigo Alves surgeries in full as she comes out as trans and unveils new identity: The reality TV star known as the ‘Human Ken Doll’ has become famous for spending over half a million pounds on cosmetic surgery.
Now Rodrigo Alves, 37, has made more than just skin profound changes, coming out in public as a transgender woman. The former Celebrity Big Brother star, who is keen to be referred to as Roadie, has spoken out about her desire to embrace her true gender identity.
Speaking exclusively to the Sunday People, Roadie said: “It feels wonderful to tell the world. Finally, I’mI’m a girl.
“I am known as Ken, but inside I have always felt like Barbie.”
Roadie, who now wants to be called by the pronouns “him” and “she,” is undergoing hormone injections and now wears hair extensions, lashes, and a D-cup bra to embrace her authentic self. Rodrigo Alves has previously undergone more than 100 cosmetic procedures, spending over £ 500,000 on surgeries such as liposuction, gel filler across the shoulders, triceps, and biceps, facelift, and 11 rhinoplasties.
Surgery began with a breast reduction at the age of 17 as Rodrigo Alves’ body produced more estrogen than the average male child, and her large breasts lead to bullying.
After this, Roddy obtained a nose job at the age of 19, before undergoing further facial surgery — more than 40 procedures — getting a look away from his natural face and getting the human Cane Doll reputation. Also, Roadie — who was previously diagnosed with body dysmorphia — has a fake six-pack surgery and ribs removed to maintain a slimmer figure, saying this morning in 2014: “I had four ribs removed so I can breathe in my blazer or without having replaced them.
Roadie appeared on the morning show with presenters Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield and revealed her ribs removed in a jar. At that time, Roadie said- “It is dangerous for internal organs. My ribs that were 11th and 12th are short that are not much use for them there.
He also noted at the time: “Yes, there is satisfaction in my soul. Plastic surgery has changed my life. From water to alcohol.”
Roddy revealed to The Sun in 2018 that she had spent:
- £8,000 on Botox and fillers
- £30,000 on nose jobs
- £3,000 on liposuction to her jaw
- £10,000 on pec implants
- £22,000 on a fake six-pack
- £7,000 on laser lipo
- £7,000 on fillers to her arms
- £5,000 hair transplant
- £6,000 on leg lipo
- £3,000 on calf shaping
- fat transfer to give her a larger bum
- a SMAS facelift
- £28,000 procedure to remove four ribs
- In operation last year, Roddy also had her fake six-pack removed and inserted into her buttocks to give a bum lift, which was then shown in a German television documentary.
At the time, Rhodey said: “I see all of my plastic surgery as my development as a person! I never wanted to look like Ken Doll or be Ken Doll. I just wanted to be unique And to show the world that anything is possible in life.
However, revealing her true gender identity has been the most positive experience for Roadie above all others.
He opens: “I finally feel like the real me — glamorous, beautiful, and feminine.
“For years, I tried to live my life as a man. I was put in a fake six-pack, I had counterfeit muscles in my arms, but I was lying to myself.
“I am a woman and always had a female brain. Now my body matches my mind.
Rhodey has also been clear about the surgery she will undergo in her transition, with full penis resurfacing surgery, breast implants, and facial feminization due to future operations.
“I will have a penis reversal, and my testicles will be removed,” she has decided. “This will be the last step.
“Before I am doing silicone breast implants. I wear clothes that show off my cleavage and look sexy. I am so excited.
“After that, I’m doing face feminization surgery. It will be an incision on the top of my scalp, and through that, the doctor will re-shape my forehead, give me an eye lift, lip lift, and mid-facelift.
He said: “I am removing my Adam’s apple, shaved my jaw, and modified my chin.”
Hormone treatment has already undergone massive changes to Roddy’s physical appearance, which he claims is being made more potent by naturally high estrogen levels.
“It would take two years of hormone therapy to show a complete change in my body, but the differences are already very noticeable.
“My skin is softer; my breasts and hips are more feminine. Fat distribution in my body is very different now, so my face is becoming rounder.”
“My genitals have shrunk a lot, and my sex drive has decreased a lot, which doesn’t bother me at all.”
The treatment comes, however, after years of abuse for her true feminine identity.
“Growing up, I was very feminine and used to play with dolls and wear my mother’ smother’s clothes and heels,” she said. “I had an instinct towards toys and footwear designed for women.
“I was bullied at school because I was very feminine. Boys would play football and girls volleyball. I always want to be with girls.
“I was physically abused — I was pushed into my face urinal and was thrown down the stairs.
“I was sexually abused by two boys at school at the age of 13. I was very feminine and weak. I couldn’t defend myself. It was excruciating.
Abuse towards transgender people remains a prevalent issue, with the BBC revealing last year that transgender crimes in England, Scotland, and Wales had increased by 61% in the year before police-reported crimes. Stonewall, a charity for the equality of LGBTQ + people across the UK, said it was “a sign of the consequences of a society where transphobia is everywhere.”
