(Newser) – Former Miss Argentina Solana Magnano died in Buenos Aires this weekend after suffering complications from cosmetic surgery on her buttocks. The 38-year-old mother of twins died after fluid injected as part of the procedure went to her lungs and brain, AP reports. A former chief of the Buenos Aires association of plastic surgeons suggested that the doctor involved may not have been a professional.

"This woman who had everything is dead because she wanted to have a slightly firmer behind," said fashion designer and close friend Roberto Piazza.
