Increasingly kooky fashionista and plastic surgery junkie, Rodrigo Alves, recently appeared on British television to reveal the results of his stylish new rib removal. For added umph, he brought the (still meaty-looking) ribs with him in a jar of formaldehyde.
The 34 year-old Brazilian is the first man to ever have his ribs removed. To clarify, he lost four ribs — his original request for six to be taken out was deemed “too risky” by doctors — all of which he kept. Why did he alter his body so dramatically? So that he didn’t have to alter his blazers.
“So I can do my blazers up without having to breathe,” he clarified to the bemused hosts.
Alves underwent the surgery just two weeks prior to his interview, appearing in a full suit and corset to reinforce his spine, now that he’s lacking in support.
“Well I am 34 years old, it has been a very long journey for me,” Alves said. “I love the way I look. I love to stand out.”
Whatever it takes to feel attractive, honey.
