It’s a pretty sad state of affairs when a beautiful, successful woman loses her life for the sake of a cosmetic procedure.
The former Miss Argentina, Solange Magnano, 38, has died of a pulmonary embolism caused by complications from a gluteoplasty, having spent three days in a critical condition following the surgery on her buttocks.
The Telegraph reports that a close friend, Roberto Piazza, said the procedure involved injections and the liquid “went to her lungs and brain”.
“A woman who had everything lost her life to have a slightly firmer behind,” he said.
Miss Magnano, who won the pageant crown in 1994 and ran her own modelling agency, leaves behind 7-year-old twins.
Estimates say that 1 in 30 Argentines has undergone plastic surgery, making surgeons there some of the most experienced on the globe, but sadly not good enough to prevent Miss Solange’s death through an unnecessary procedure.
