According to online reports, ex-Miss Argentina has died following complications from a gluteoplasty procedure, in other words, butt implant surgery.
Solange Magnano suffered a pulmonary embolism to her lungs after undergoing the procedure at a Brazilian clinic, according to TMZ. A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that travels from the legs up a major vein that empties blood into the heart and lungs.
If that clot becomes trapped in the lungs, it impedes the flow of blood around it causing oxygen starvation to the surrounding cells leading to sudden death.
People with a sedentary lifestyle (ie, the elderly, office workers or airline passengers who sit for long periods of time) are more prone to blood clots. In Solange's case, a blood clot likely formed around the implants and traveled up the deep vein in her leg to her heart and lungs.
Solange won the crown back in 1994. She is survived by her husband and 7-year-old twins.
