The Air steward, Rodrigo Alves has reportedly been hospitalised after contracting the flesh-eating infection following a recent nose job.

Daily Record reports that the young man who is originally from Brazil but lives in London, has made headlines all over the world after he reportedly spent over £300,000 on plastic surgery in a bid to transform his body in the exact replica of a 'Ken doll'.

Alves revealed that he had been miserable over his appearance, making him go under the knife at least 42 times within the last 15 years.

Sadly, three months after his most recent operation done on his nose, Rodrigo reveals that he had been rushed back to hospital following the contraction of the infection.

On a post he shared with a picture of his bandaged and rotting nose, Alves wrote:

"I had a nose reconstruction three months ago and it seems like the new cartilage has been rejected by my body.

"It is terrible and I am trying to go back to London as soon as possible for help. It got harder and harder to breath and now my nose in completely blocked.

"A horrible hole has appeared in my nose and the infection is eating it. If it does not stop, it could eat my whole face. I am very worried."

Fortunately for him, Alves shared an update on his situation today, saying:

"Thank you everyone who inboxed me today. I just want to say that I'm very well and everything is under control now.... Nothing to worry and life goes on."
