A popular model on Instagram has died a painful death after failed butt surgery to make her bum bigger.
According to Dailymail, Instagram model Joselyn Cano, dubbed the Mexican Kim Kardashian, died at the age of 29 after a botched butt-lift surgery in Colombia.
Cano was a model, social media influencer, building a following of more than 12million, and a fashion designer. Her LinkedIn profile also states she studied Microbiology at San Diego State University.
A short message on the stream read: ‘Joselyn entered this life on Wednesday, March 14, 1990. She entered into Eternal Life on Monday, December 07, 2020.’
While reports of her death still remain unconfirmed, her Instagram page, which is typically updated at least once a week has not been updated since December 7.
Another said: ‘What the fk? Joselyn cano died from getting a [Brazilian butt lift]? That st is crazy.’
For Brazilian butt lift procedures, fat is taken from various parts of the body and put with the buttocks.
It has grown increasingly popular in the United States, becoming the fastest-growing type of plastic surgery, according to 2015 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
The rate of buttock lift procedures rose 252 percent from 2000 to 2015. The total went from 1,356 to 4,767 procedures over the course of that time.
Injecting fat into the butt can lead to problems if done improperly, including fat embolism – which is when fat enters the bloodstream and blocks a blood vessel.
The estimated death rate for BBL is 1 in 3000, according to PlasticSurgery.org.
