"Secondly, the death of a friend. My condolences to the whole family, may God receive Luana with open arms."

She previously took part in reality TV show Power Couple Brasil, alongside her businessman boyfriend João Hadad.

In a heartfelt post shared to social media, João wrote: "It was two years by your side and I have no words to express how happy I was… We built a beautiful story and lived our dreams intensely.

"In addition to being a girlfriend, you are and will always be a partner beyond life, my love."

He said Luana was a person of great character, whose kindness and empathy left eternal marks on everyone who had the honour of meeting her.

Fans flocked to the comment section beneath Luana's most recent Instagram photo, eerily posted just one day ago.

In the picture, she posed wearing a sports bra, leggings, and sneakers while taking selfies in the mirror of her "favourite" gym.

One fan 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."

Someone else said: "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."

Surfer Gabriel Medina condemned the cosmetic procedure his friend underwent: "Today I lost a friend due to 'simple' aesthetic procedures.

"The world is surreal, people… especially you women.

"This standard of 'perfect' bodies that are impossible to achieve displayed on Instagram and in the media needs to end urgently.

"Why risk your life for nothing? Can not understand. We are young, we have several other ways of feeling good, healthy and beautiful.
