Is plastic surgery risky business or worth the risk: Solange Magnano

The story is perfect for tabloid headlines...no not Tiger...Fashiona will deal with his shenanigans on Sunday. 

Today's topic is whether plastic surgery is worth the risk in light of another high profile plastic surgery death, Solange Magnano, a thirty something Miss Argentina 1994.

As the Associated Press reported, the 38 year old mother of twins  died from complications after undergoing cosmetic surgery on her buttocks.  The surgery was purely elective and seemingly relatively risk free but sadly went horribly wrong.

Her 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.

Hmmm...this is from a friend of hers that clearly misses her and would have rather had his friend back, flabby behind and all.  So the question is elective surgery worth it?

Fashiona is a risk taker...she gave up a stable but dreadfully boring career in marketing to pursue the fickle and flighty world of fashion.  What she gave up in financial security...she gained in personal fulfillment, two passports full of stamps from across the world and plenty of material for her upcoming novel.  Fashiona does concede that the  industry certainly does thrive on unrealistic expectations of beauty and very well may contribute to women risking their lives in hopes of being more beautiful.

What truly puzzles Fashiona the most about   Solange's case is, as a beauty queen she was already validated as a great beauty  so why on earth would she go under the knife for any reason?  She was already married and supposedly happy and was the mother of two beautiful children.

Is Fashiona against plastic surgery...absolutely not! But she does hope that anyone who even considers it realizes that any surgery incurs risk and  the decision must be considered seriously. 

And most importantly weigh the pursuit of  immediate physical perfection against long term quite possibly imperfect happiness.
