Rodrigo Alves has said he can finally taste food for the first time in four years after a new nose surgery.
The Human Ken Doll has now had his 70th surgery, including a nose job to help him breathe better and a controversial eye surgery which has given him "cat eyes."
But his 11th nose job has unlocked more than just his sense of smell – but also his tastebuds, after he spent four years unable to taste.
He said to This Morning Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "It’s been four years – I was living with my nose blocked, it felt like having a constant cold, not being able to taste food or wine properly.

"My nose was a dead organ and I can finally breathe. It was a bacterial infection which destroyed my nose.
"I had to wait all this time, I flew all the way to Iran because they perform it [rhinoplasty] a lot out there. That’s where the best surgeons are for rhinoplasty."
Rodrigo then admitted he had put on a few pounds as he takes his "rest time very seriously," but the new tastes he experienced may also have helped.
He said: "I’m tender everywhere as you can see, I’ve put weight on,,, as I take my downtime very seriously.

"At least now I’m so happy that I can breathe, food tastes differenly so I have had lots of very nice food in Iran – food that I’ve never had before."
Rodrigo has now spent £600k altogether on his surgeries, and believes he is inspiring other to "reinvent themselves."
He added: "I’m a dreamer and I’m so lucky and blessed and fortunate I have been able to achieve those [dreams] by modifying myself and to transform myself to whatever I want to… I have inspired people around the world to transform and reinvent themselves."
