Rodrigo Alvez, who became famous as ‘Human Ken Doll’ for spending around $650,000 on surgery, recently came out as a transgender woman.
“It feels amazing to finally tell the world I’m a girl,” Alvez announced in the Sunday Mirror. “I’m known as Ken, but inside I’ve always felt like Barbie.”
Alves now wants to be called Roddy and uses the pronouns ‘she’ and ‘her.’ She has also admitted that she will undergo further surgeries, including gender realignment surgery.
“I finally feel like the real me. Glamorous, beautiful and feminine,” the 36-year-old went on.
“For years I tried to live my life as a man. I had a fake six pack put in, I had fake muscles in my arms but I was lying to myself.
“I’m a woman and have always had a feminine brain. Now my body matches my mind.”
She added: “I will have a penile inversion and my testicles will be removed. That will be the final step.
“Before that I’m having silicone breast implants. I’ll be able to wear dresses that show my cleavage and look sexy. I’m very excited.
“After that, I’m having face feminisation surgery. It will be an incision at the top of my scalp, and through that the doctor will reshape my forehead, give me an eye lift, lip lift and middle face lift.
“I’m having my Adam’s apple removed, my jawline shaved and my chin modified.”
The reality TV star shared: “Behind closed doors, I’ve been living as a woman for the last three months. I love it and everything that comes with it – going to nice hair salons and getting my nails, eyebrows and eyelashes done. Buying dresses and high heels and wearing sexy lingerie.
“But I have been trolled and called a freak and a weirdo, so of course I am nervous about how people will react.
“A few years ago I could never have done this but it feels easier now.
“People are more aware of what being transgender means. I just hope people can accept me as a woman and don’t judge or ridicule me.”
