Ever since the news regarding Joselyn Cano’s butt surgery going terribly wrong made it to the Internet, the Twitterati has been busy expressing their grief and sadness over the loss of the OnlyFans model.

A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery procedure where the surgeon removes fat from another part of the body and puts it into the buttocks to make them appear fuller. Brazilian butt lifts or BBLs are extremely popular in the United States right now. Celebrities and Instagram influencers like Kim Kardashian have made cosmetic procedures famous in recent years.
From 2000 to 2015, the rates that doctors performed butt lift procedures skyrocketed a staggering 252 percent. The total went from 1,356 procedures back in 2000 to a staggering 4,767 procedures per year by 2015. Even more, are likely conducted each year now.
Although Brazilian butt lifts are relatively safe when done properly, life-threatening complications can arise when the procedure is done incorrectly. When fat is injected into the body, it can enter the bloodstream and block blood vessels. According to an online database, the likelihood of dying from a Brazilian butt lift is one in three thousand.
The live-streamed funeral services showed bereaved family members of Cano mourning the loss of the young celebrity. They had her remains in a casket along with a large picture of her.
“Joselyn entered this life on Wednesday, March 14, 1990. She entered into Eternal Life on Monday, December 07, 2020. Joselyn’s visitation will held on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm,” the video reads.
The Post noted that Cano’s family hasn’t confirmed her death, but a video posted on YouTube by Akes Family Funeral Homes indicates that it’s from her visitation on December 16. That funeral home is located in Riverside, California.
The news of Cano’s death was also confirmed by another model, Lira Mercer, who wrote on Twitter, “Omg Joselyn Cano died in Colombia getting surgery…that’s wild.” She added, “She looked so good already wow prayers for her family she was so sweet ?.”
According to AWM, social media users shared their condolences to the model’s surviving family members.
