After holding talks with doctors and expert physicians, the Unicef ambassador opted to have the lower part of her left leg removed.
In one of her previous Instagram messages, Álvarez had vowed to her fans that she would once again dance following five operations, the last which took place June 23.
Álvarez, who run an online boutique, told her followers that ‘I made the decision to have a prosthesis that allows me to dance champeta’ – a style of dance originating in the Caribbean coastal region of Colombia, where she was born and raised.
