Man Who Had Nose And Top Lip Removed To Look Like an ‘Alien’ Now Struggles To Speak

What does an alien and a plastic surgeon have in common? Not much, unless you’re this guy. You’d be forgiven for thinking he’s wearing a costume and special effects make up because of how extreme his transformation is.

The Transformation

Anthony Loffredo is a 32-year-old Frenchman with an obsession with body modification. He’s also documented his entire transformation into the person he calls the “black alien.”

Anthony has done all sorts of things to his body, including tattooing his eyeballs, splitting his tongue, and covering his body in ink. He has plenty of piercings and dermal implants, too. He’s also had his ears cut off to help look more extra-terrestrial.

His entire facial structure looks nothing like the man he once was – and the self-proclaimed alien says he’s not done yet. He plans on modifying his arms, legs, fingers, and the back of his head when he can.

Cutting your Nose to Spite your Face

More recently, though, Anthony had to travel to have a rather peculiar surgery done.

Because it was illegal in France, Anthony flew to Spain to have his lip and nose surgically removed from his face. [1]

Like in a dream… I live this dream… Thank you to you, @oscarmarquezbodymod you will have marked my life… now I can walk with my head high thanks to you, I am proud of what we did together.”

The funny thing is, during an Instagram live video, he also let his followers know about the struggles he’s been facing post-op. Yet, this is hardly a barrier to the rest of his body modification plans. Anthony says he can’t speak properly after having his lip removed, but he can’t wait to change his body again.[2]

The surgery Anthony underwent is called a rhinotomy. This, in other words, is a nose amputation.

Alien or Human?

Anthony has always wanted to be different, back in 2017, he told Midi Libre, a newspaper in France, how his obsession and fascination started from a very young age;

From a very young age, I have been passionate about mutations and transformations of the human body.

“I had a click when I was a security guard. Realized that I was not living my life the way I wanted. I stopped everything at 24 and left for Australia.

“It has become normal, even unconscious, to constantly think about my plans for the next few months. I love getting into the shoes of a scary character. Then I often settle down somewhere and play a role, especially at night in the dark streets; he has fun. I explore the contrast between the role I play and myself.
