Former Miss Argentina, Solange Magnano, has died from complications after undergoing cosmetic surgery on her buttocks.
Ms Magnano, 38, was a mother of twins who won the crown in 1994. She died of a pulmonary embolism on Sunday after three days in critical condition following a gluteoplasty in Buenos Aires.
Close friend Roberto Piazza said the procedure involved injections and the liquid "went to her lungs and brain.
"A woman who had everything lost her life to have a slightly firmer behind," he said.
Magnano's burial was shown yesterday on Argentinian television.
Dr Gonzalo Cortes y Tristan said she arrived at his hospital with an acute respiratory deficiency. Her condition deteriorated until she suffered the embolism.
