An Instagram influencer, known as the “Mexican Kim Kardashian,” reportedly passed away in Colombia after a failed butt lift.
Joselyn Cano boasted an Instagram following of nearly 13 million, as well as a swim line, Joselyn Cano Swimwear. According to her LinkedIn profile, she studied microbiology at San Diego State University before becoming a social media influencer and model.
While the 29-year-old’s family has not confirmed the model’s death, her funeral was reportedly uploaded on YouTube Wednesday by the Akes Family Funeral Home. According to the caption, Cano passed away on December 7.
Brazilian butt lifts have become the fastest-growing plastic surgery, according to 2015 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. From 2000 to 2015, butt lift procedures rose 252 percent.
However, the procedure can be hazardous if done improperly. One of the primary risks is fat embolism, which is when fat enters the bloodstream and blocks a blood vessel. The estimated death rate for butt lift surgery is 1 in 3000.
