Former Miss Argentina Dies After Buttock Augmentation

Former Miss Argentina Dies After Buttock Augmentation

Former Miss Argentina Solange Magnano died recently after a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by an unaccredited doctor went horribly wrong.

Solange Magnano dies after buttock implant surgeryA former beauty queen died recently as a result of a botched cosmetic surgery procedure performed by a doctor who it appears was not accredited to perform the operation.

Solange Magnano, who was crowned Miss Argentina in 1994, reportedly visited a cosmetic surgeon for a buttock augmentation. The procedure involved the insertion of liquid implants that smooth and firm up the outline of the buttocks.

But it appeared the operation went horribly wrong when liquid leaked from the implants and infected her lungs. The reported cause of death was a pulmonary embolism – which came a day after undergoing surgery in Buenos Aires. Magnano was 38, and the mother of 7-year-old twins.

Juan Carlos Seiler of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has speculated that Magnano’s surgeon may not have been sufficiently accredited.

Magnano ran her own modeling agency, and close friends say she had a perfect body and didn’t need plastic surgery in the first place.
