So. Â 38-year old Solange Magnano, sometime clotheshorse and former Miss Argentina, has died following surgery designed to give her backside a cheeky little lift.
It seems that the leggy lovely was dissatisfied with her saggy sit-upon and fancied that some bum-boosting implants were just what she needed to achieve this seasonâs must-have derriere.
Sadly for Ms Magnano, her husband and her eight-year old twins, something went horribly wrong during the procedure which is known comfortingly as gluteoplasty. Â It seems that liquid injected into the glamorous patient at some stage of the operation found its way into her lungs and brain, causing blood clots, a pulmonary embolism and her death just days later.
A friend of Ms Magnano, fashion designer Roberto Piazza is reported to have said “A woman who had everything lost her life to have a slightly firmer behindâ.
Quite so, Roberto Piazza, fashion designer! Â For crying out loud, this woman had legs up to her armpits, a successful modelling career, knew the thrill of being officially crowned the best-looking bird in her country and ended up happily married with two kids! No wonder the poor tortured soul could find no peace until she had some gloop-filled whoopee cushions stuffed into her bum â let us not forget that a slightly firmer behind is, in fact, everything that itâs cracked up to be.
Let us not for a moment underestimate the financial wherewithal and the single-minded obsession with physical perfection required to brave the surgeonâs knife and his eye-watering fees! Â Let us not pooh-pooh the effort required to take oneâs innate beauty for granted and to seek a tidier tush in order to be true to oneâs âsense of selfâ! Â Let us champion this gorgeous girl who was prepared to take her good fortune and family life for granted and to throw herself into a heartfelt head-butt with the hideous hag she feared lay within, waiting to drag her buttocks down beyond her knees! Â The poor dear was more prepared to die on the operating table than to have a bit of a blobby bottom at the age of 38 and why not? At least she died with a âslightly firmer behindâ.
So, Solange Magnano, we, who have only ever been able to dream of 34-inch hips and a perky embonpoint, salute you; we, who are grateful for the comfort that only an elasticated-waistband can afford, applaud that you were driven that extra mile towards breathtaking exquisiteness; we, who are astonished that anyone could want to make their bum BIGGER, heave our portly frames out of our comfy chairs and cheer your dedication-to-task. Â You died young, beautiful and you are a lesson to us all, even if we arenât all firmly behind you in the misguided choice you made.
Those moved by her story can leave comments on a Facebook group which has been created in tribute to Ms Magnano, her beauty and the bum-choice she made.
