TRANS woman Jessica Alves has revealed she has gained a shocking 35 kg since starting her transition.
The 37-year-old, who was formerly known as 'Human Ken Doll' Rodrigo Alves, said the combination of Hormone Replacement Therapy and antibiotics for after surgery has caused the weight gain.
In a bid to lose the extra pounds as quickly as possible, Jessica flew to Turkey to get gastric sleeve surgery.
Jessica's stomach was reduced in size by 75%, allowing her to lose a kilogram per day over the course of two weeks.
During her stay in Turkey she has also been receiving the 'Robolex' treatment, which uses ultrasonic radio frequencies to burn fat cells.
Happier than ever with her new look, Jessica is ready to reveal her bikini body as a woman for the first time ever.
Jessica told Truly: "It's amazing to wear a swimming suit like this, which I was never able to wear before – I feel really comfortable and happy".
