Emily died by suicide. She had been struggling with complications arising from a failed facial feminisation surgery the previous year.

She had previously written about her experience on her Facebook timeline:

Hi Facebook friends . Please give me a little time today and read this topic. There is something very important that I want to discuss with you in this topic .

As many of you know I had a terrible face feminising surgery last year with dr jesus baez marquez.

He kept me 15 hours in the operating room just for forehead and nose surgery (I guess he could not finish the surgery and he had to get some help from other surgeons outside) .

I had serious side effects after the surgery (I had infection and I was almost blind for 2 months . in Those two months I could not work. I could not even go for shopping. Once I went to the doctor and I could not find Uber because I could not see the plate number).

The saddest part of this story was the surgery result. The more that I waited for the final result, the more my face looked unusual.

There was a hole in the middle of the forehead with sharp angles on eyebrows , deeper set eyes and too much inconsistency between left and right. There was a very bad scare under my nose (it is still clear adter one year).

I went to many FFS surgeons to ask for revision so I look like human again . All of them rejected me because the damage on the bones structure were not fixable.
