Luana Andrade has gone too soon and the fans are not settling with the cause.

The young Brazilian influencer has passed away after undergoing liposuction surgery.

Page Six reported citing the Brazilian news outlet Globo 1, Luana, 29, died on Tuesday in Sao Paulo, just a day after being admitted to the hospital to “undergo an aesthetic procedure.”

Many fans and followers took to her Instagram comment section to express shock at her death.

One user commented, “Unbelievable that a woman with such a beautiful body lost her life because of a cosmetic procedure, image disorder is a very serious thing.”

A second one questioned, “But she's extremely thin, why did she go for lipo? I hem.”

Third user hinted at medical negligence, “I'm amazed that a doctor agreed to do this procedure unnecessarily; he could have directed the patient to a psychologist, because it's clear that she had an identity crisis. That was medical neglect!”

Another one noted, “The internet image will still kill a lot of people.”

Reportedly, the influencer “suffered a cardiac arrest,” two and a half hours, following the surgery and was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit.

According to the news outlet, the hospital issued a statement, which read, “Patient Luana Andrade was admitted, accompanied by her family, on Monday afternoon to the unit for a liposuction procedure”

They noted that her surgery was “carried out by a private surgeon and anesthetist hired by the family.”

The statement continued, “After approximately two and a half hours of surgery, the patient presented with an abrupt respiratory event and went into cardiac arrest, being immediately resuscitated by the team.”

The hospital added that the surgery was “interrupted” and Andrade “underwent tests that revealed massive thrombosis,” which occurs when blood clots block veins or arteries.

In the ICU, the model underwent “medication and hemodynamic treatment"; however, it is said that she “progressed unfavorably” and passed away at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, November 7.

Her final rituals were carried out on Wednesday, November 8 at the Valle dos Reid Cemetery in Sao Paulo.
