Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) December 10, 2009 -- Her friends affirm a former Miss Argentina, Solange Magnano 38, had everything. However, she apparently did not believe so.
Solange Magnano died from complications after going through a gluetoplasty, a cosmetic surgery to tighten the buttocks. She had the surgery on Thursday, but was rushed back to hospital on Friday. After three days in a critical condition, she died of a pulmonary embolism.
Magnano won her Miss Argentina crown in 1994. She leaves behind eight-year old twins.
A fashion designer and close friend of Magnano said that the procedure included injections. It appeared the liquid went to her lungs and brain.
Another associate from the fashion world and close friend of Magnano, Guillermo Azar stated "She only underwent the procedure because she thought it was no big deal".
Former president of an Argentinian association of plastic surgeons, Juan Carlos Seiler, has queried whether the doctor who performed the procedure might not have been a real professional from an âapprovedâ cosmetic surgery centre.
More and more film stars and models are opting for gluteoplasty, to make their figure firm and to get in better shape. Surgeons however, strongly recommend that women should consult only professional surgeons for gluteoplasty and other cosmetic surgeries.
Gluteoplasty is the latest beauty trend among women. It is a surgery in which fat is transferred or enhanced in the buttocks through injecting different hormones. After facial surgeries and breast surgeries, gluteoplasty is probably the most wanted cosmetic surgery. But the beauty does not come without pain.
In 2008 almost 50,000 plastic surgery procedures were performed in Argentina - a 60 per cent increase over 2003, with a growing number of foreigners seeking inexpensive cosmetic enhancements, accounting for much of the increase.
