A real-life Ken doll has given up on his plans for plastic surgery and is now plying his trade as a brickie instead.
Felipe Maximo Dias de Oliveira previously hit headlines for planning 42 cosmetic ops to turn himself into a human Ken doll.
But the 18-year-old later had a change of heart and is now enjoying life working as a builder in Peruibe, Sao Paulo state, Brazil.
In a recent social media post, he shared footage of himself hard at work along with the caption “Let’s go!”.
He still shares snaps of himself impersonating Mattel’s 1961 fictional character for his 12,600 Insta fans but now sees no need to go any further than just makeup.
Felipe confessed: “I saw problems in myself that didn’t exist, I don’t see the need for any surgery now. I looked at myself in the mirror and managed to see myself.”
The teen explained that he had been living alone since his sister moved to Portugal and that to be able to pay the rent, he now works in construction with his uncle and stepdad.
He said: “With all the difficulty to work and needing a job urgently, I ended up taking advantage of the opportunity they could give me. I had already had some experience, so it worked out.
“Not only am I proud of my job but I also like to be on the job.”
Felipe hit headlines in 2020 at the age of just 16 when he told local media he planned 42 cosmetic ops so he could look more like Ken.
But in September last year, he took to social media to announce that he had called off the surgeries and that he would still cosplay as the character but only in makeup.
