Former Miss Argentina dies after plastic surgery

Three days ago, on Nov. 29, 2009, the former Miss Argentina died. Now, it’s evident as reported in the news that her recent and tragic death resulted from complications that developed after she underwent a cosmetic surgery procedure. According to multiple reports, Solange Magnano was 37 years old, and was transferred from a clinic in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she underwent elective surgery on her buttock area on Wednesday.

Miss ArgentinaAlthough her death is under investigation, some sources indicate that she may have had a pulmonary embolus which occurred from an injection of a certain substance into her buttock area. Sources state she was rushed to the hospital on Friday after suffering a pulmonary embolus. Juan Carlos Seiler, the former president of Buenos Aires Association of Plastic Surgeons, suggested that “the doctor who performed the procedure might not have been a real professional from an approved cosmetic surgery center.” It is indicated that some type of injectable substance (not specifically described although it may have been silicone or fat injection), led to a pulmonary embolus and death. It would be interesting to uncover facts on her death as to what truly occurred. This is once again why cosmetic surgery should always be considered a serious operation and not considered as simple as a haircut or having a manicure. Even injections of simply autologous fat, if not performed correctly, can lead to very serious complications including deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolus which is consistent with the death of Miss Argentina of 1994.
