The Colorado teen’s death was publicized on the day of her funeral, KDVR reported.
A private service, which had attendees wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines, was held for Emmalyn on Sunday – prior to her cremation.
Emmalyn’s tragic breast enhancement surgery took place on August 1, 2019.
She was 18 years old at the time of the procedure – which ultimately left her in a nursing home with a feeding tube and an oxygen machine until she died.
Emmalyn was allegedly left unattended after she was given anesthesia during the cosmetic surgery performed by Dr Geoffrey Kim in August, according to a lawsuit filed by her family and obtained by The Sun.
The procedure was only supposed to last for two hours, but Emmalyn’s mom, Lynn Fam, reportedly began to have a “weird feeling” as the procedure stretched into the afternoon.

Emmalyn Nguyen Family
While she was in the hospital, her parents sued two of the doctors who allegedly administered anesthesia before the surgery, plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Kim and nurse anesthetist Rex Meeker, for gross negligence.
Nguyen’s parents allege in the lawsuit that the doctors left her “unobserved” for 15 minutes after they administered the anesthesia, during which time she went into cardiac arrest and stopped breathing. David Woodruff, the attorney representing Nguyen’s parents, told PEOPLE in December that the staff at Kim’s plastic surgery center allegedly performed CPR on Nguyen twice, and waited five-and-a-half hours before calling 911. Her parents were not immediately told their daughter had gone into cardiac arrest.

Nguyen had arranged to go for the surgery with Dr. Geoffrey Kim for breast augmentation on Aug. 1, 2019, at Colorado Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery in Greenwood Village. After being administered anesthesia, she suffered cardiac arrest and never made it into surgery. The medical error left the teen in a coma with brain damage, requiring round-the-clock medical care.
