Trans influencer Jessica Alves has flaunted her new look in a revealing leopard-print swimsuit after undergoing a series of ops in Thailand.
Brazilian-British celebrity Jessica Alves – formerly known as the Human Ken – has shown off the results of her facial feminisation op in Thailand for her army of 5.7 million Instagram followers.
The trans influencer, 38, said she underwent mentoplasty, also known as facial feminisation, a procedure to scrape the bones of the chin and jaw to thin the face.
She revealed she also had work done to lift her eyebrows and lips as well as tune her voice.
In an Instagram update on 22nd June, Alves shared a photo of her posing on a Thai beach in a leopard-print swimsuit with the caption: “Feeling energised!”
She previously said: “I have huge gratitude, love and respect for each one of you here at this amazing hospital [Kamol Cosmetic Hospital] helping us providing the best surgeries and after care making our dreams reality.”
Jessica was born in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo in 1983 to a Brazilian mother and a British father and moved to London when she was 18 to study public relations at the London College of Communication.
Alves first became famous as ‘the human Ken doll’, attracting a huge social media following and global fame.
She was diagnosed with body dysmorphia in 2013. To date, she has undergone over 100 cosmetic procedures including more than 50 surgeries.
She said: “I’d always felt feminine and when I struggled to be manly with my personality, I decided to make my appearance as masculine as possible instead…
“But no matter how much I looked like Ken, nothing eased the pain of being Barbie inside.”
Alves came out as transgender in January 2020 and announced that she was changing her name to Jessica in July, even telling the hosts of the British TV show ‘This Morning’: “I have been developing as a person and as a human being. I was born a transgender woman.”
