While the majority of male clients who opt for hair transplants simply want to rejuvenate their look, some have other goals. Rodrigo Alves recently made the headlines with the results of his latest cosmetic surgery. He went under the knife to have 3,000 follicles implanted, creating a thicker, lower and more feminine hairline.

Brazilian born Alves has become famous for the extensive work he has had done on his face and body, earning him the nickname The Human Ken Doll. He has appeared on reality TV shows, as well as on ITV’s This Morning, and in GQ Magazine and Vogue.

34-year old Brazilian-born Alves has spoken in interviews about his feelings that he was born in the wrong body and stated that he will eventually transition to being a woman. His recent hair transplant operation was the 59th procedure that he has had with the aim of making his appearance more feminine. Previous surgeries include nose shaping, facial fillers, liposuction, chest and arm implants, and a buttock lift, with a cost totalling at least £450,000. As he showed off his hair transplants in Los Angeles during October 2017, Alves told the press that the results would look even better in six months time.

While it is not typical for an individual to want to change their appearance as much as Alves has, his case is a reminder that treatments like hair transplants can allow us to take control of how we look. There is no need to suffer in silence if you have noticed that your hairline is receding or you have bald patches appearing – there are solutions available to restore your hair for a more youthful look.
