Do you guys remember the post I wrote about the lengths that people will go to get into a pair of jeans (and just overall look “good” or “hot”)? This story is a sad example of what can happen from the obsession.
Big thanks to reader June for the tipoff. This is so sad.
Buenos Aires, Argentina (CNN) — A former Miss Argentina died Sunday after complications arising from plastic surgery, the official Telam news agency said.
Solange Magnano, 37, died in a hospital after being transferred from a clinic where she underwent an elective surgery on her buttocks on Wednesday, the agency reported.
Magnano ran her own modeling agency in Argentina, and had been a model and Miss Argentina in 1994. She also was the mother of 7-year-old twins.
The cause of her death was under investigation, authorities said.
In recent years, Argentina has become an international destination for plastic surgery. The costs of such procedures there are much lower than in other countries.
Estimates say that 1 in 30 Argentines has gone under the knife, making surgeons here some of the most experienced on the globe.
