Tijuana, Mexico–Adore Plastic Surgery, a Tijuana plastic surgery practice that has helped transform its clientele into hip hop idols, is shutting down.
The business was shut down by its owner, who was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.
According to local news reports, Adore’s CEO, Manuel Aguirre, passed away on February 23, 2017.
The cause of death was found to be leukemia.
Aguirres death was not disclosed.
Adore’s website posted a statement on its website explaining its closure.
“Today we are closing Adore.
The staff and our clients will continue to be able to perform at their best.
The loss of Adore is a devastating blow to our community and our employees,” the statement read.
“We wish to extend our deepest condolences to the Aguirrez family.
The Adore family is a valued part of the community and we wish them nothing but the best.”
The closure comes just weeks after Adore opened a second location in Los Angeles, Los Angeles.
The company announced the closure in October of this year, telling TMZ that its new location would open in late 2018.
The announcement follows the death of longtime Adore plastic surgeon, Daniel Herrera.
Herrera died on February 21, 2018, at age 53 after a battle with brain cancer.
He died in the hospital, but his family was allowed to stay at the business for three days before his death.
Herrera’s wife, Maribel Herrera, posted a heartfelt tribute on her Facebook page.
“Adore, we love you, we appreciate you for the amazing job you did for us and we ask you to keep this in mind,” she wrote.
“I know your pain.
I know you will be in our hearts forever.
Thank you for being a part of our lives and the world.
You are the best, love you.”
In January, Adoogbo, a Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon and co-owner of Adooyo Plastic Surgery and Surgery Clinic, announced he would close his shop in 2018.
The news was met with mixed reactions.
On February 6, Los Santos Weekly reported that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said he hoped Adore would open a new location in the city in the coming months.
