We have been following tort cases involving cosmetic surgeries. Now, former Miss Argentina, Solange Magnano, has died from complications after undergoing gluteoplasty to reduce her buttocks in Buenos Aires.
Close friend Roberto Piazza said the liquid from the injections “went to her lungs and brain” and she eventually died from an embolism.
This procedure can involve both butt implants and butt “lifts.” The allegation in this case sounds quite close to the theory of breast implant litigation — involving leaking and migrating fluids. Gluteoplasty is becoming a major area for cosmetic surgery and it will be interesting to see if there is a parallel increase in litigation.
