Solange Magnano, 38, died Sunday due to complications during a gluteoplasty, friends of the former beauty queen report.
Magnano underwent a gluteoplasty (also known as buttock implants) on Thursday, but complications arose when liquid injected during the procedure traveled to her lungs and brain. She suffered a pulmonary embolism after surgery, blocking blood flow to the lungs, and was rushed to a hospital, where she died.

“Solange was a girl who had everything. She lived the life of a goddess, she was the envy of everybody.
“Now she is dead because she wanted a slightly firmer behind.
“She died because of her obsession with beauty.”
With about 300 people present, Magnano was buried yesterday in her hometown of San Francisco in the province of Cordoba.
