Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves says three surgeons declined to treat him after his chin implant exploded
Fortunately for him, Alves found a surgeon in Istanbul, Turkey who was willing to perform the surgery.
Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves recently revealed that three surgeons turned him down for corrective chin surgery after his implant exploded. However, a miracle doctor has finally agreed to step in and save the day for the television personality.
The TV star had a new implant fitted just weeks ago in Iran, but unfortunately woke up to discover a permanent dent had appeared on his chin. Admitting that he was left quite devastated over his appearance, he also revealed that three screws holding his implant in place had become infected.
In a conversation with Daily Mail, the 35-year-old explained, "Three surgeons turned me down for surgery and I didn't know what I was going to do. One declined to do the operation last minute after realizing it wouldn't be possible for him to fix it to my level of expectations. It's been very stressful."
Fortunately for him, he found a surgeon on Turkey who was willing to perform the surgery.
"I have found a surgeon called Dr. Ali, who can perform the procedure in Istanbul, Turkey, on Saturday, where I have been filming a new project," he continued, "He has taken lots of X-Rays and done a CAT scan and feels confident that he can fix it. He has taken lots of X-Rays and done a CAT scan and feels confident that he can fix it."
Alves further said, "During my last chin surgery, the surgeon used a silicone implant that got infected causing me a lot of pain. The doctor used three screws to hold the silicone implant firmly in place, but this is now affecting my teeth and making them spread apart."
"I have been very upset and I'm on pain medication. It is very frustrating to find myself in this situation right now. I had to cancel all my TV shows and it's got in the way of me promoting my single, Plastic World." But the Human Ken Doll admits that he's more confident that his Turkish surgery will be a success.
He said: "They are going to use a type of implant called Medpore, which is like a fake piece of bone. Then he will use fat from my neck and jawline to fill up the dent which has been created by the infection. I want my chin to look smaller on a V shape and he will shave my bone to achieve that look."
Alves said he was "in tears" over his recent chin rupture. He even lamented about a future singing appearance: "How can I go there to talk about my song when I have a big dent in my chin? I have been in tears as I have been in pain, can't feel my mouth and have been struggling to eat."
