An Instagram model Joselyn Cano died after a botched medical procedure in Colombia. She had a vast social media following, and her death is saddening yet still not confirmed by her family members.
The model dubbed "Mexican Kim Kardashian" was reported to have died at 29 after a messy yet extremely popular surgery in Colombia. According to sources, she went there to have a butt-lift procedure.
There are claims that she died on December 7, 2020, and recently, there was a live stream of what many believe to be her last posts. This video was on YouTube.
Joselyn Cano was from Newport Beach, California. Her family has not released any update to confirm the loss, but many people have been sharing their condolences on social media.
With a followership of about 12 million, the model, social media influencer, and fashion designer was pretty famous. According to her LinkedIn profile, she also studied Microbiology at San Diego State University.
Live Stream Of Her Memorial
On YouTube, there was a three-hour live stream of her funeral. It showed loved ones paying respect to the young woman in a casket with a large picture of her beside it.
The live stream was accompanied by the message:
"Joselyn entered this life on Wednesday, March 14, 1990. She entered into Eternal Life on Monday, December 07, 2020."
Although her death remains unconfirmed, there are pointers to the fact that it is most likely true. For example, her Instagram page, which is typically updated at least once a week, has seen no updates since December 7.
On Twitter, someone posted about it saying,
"Rip Joselyn Cano so young and so beautiful."
The Beauty Treatment That Kills
Getting a beauty treatment and dying from it sounds really crazy. She went for the Brazilian lift treatment procedure that involves taking fat from various parts of the body to fill up the backside.
According to 2015 statistics from the American Society, it is the fastest-growing type of treatment demanded by interested body-beauty enthusiasts. It has also grown increasingly popular in the United States.
From 2000 to 2015, the rate of lift procedures rose by 252 percent, recording from 1,356 to 4,767 procedures over the course of that time.
If the procedure is done incorrectly, problems could arise, such as fat entering the body and blocking a vessel.
According to one doctor, the estimated life loss rate for BBL is 1 in 3000. Cano happened to be the 1 in a particular 3000 set of people.
Fellow influencer Lira Mercer shared the news on Twitter which led to its going viral. In her words,
"Omg Joselyn Cano depart in Colombia getting medical procedure."
What a tragic event for such a young and lovely woman.
