Linda Evangelista has shared the first pictures of her body since a cosmetic surgery went wrong.
Before she had a cosmetic procedure, Linda Evangelista kept her body hidden. The procedure is said to have left her “brutally disfigured.”
No, I don’t think so. It’s not fair to put them next to my body, the model told People.
When I was on the catwalk, I had a great time. A friend of mine now makes me afraid to run into them because I don’t want to see them, she said. “I can’t live like this anymore. I can’t hide and be ashamed.” I couldn’t live with this pain any longer.
The 56-year-old supermodel said that after having seven sessions of CoolSculpting, a “fat-freezing” procedure, from August 2015 to February 2016, her fat cells “grew, not shrunk.” This made the areas she wanted to shrink bigger and harder.
Throughout the interview, Evangelista said that her chin, thighs, and chest area were all bulging.
“I thought I was doing something wrong when I tried to fix it myself,” she said. In the end, I didn’t eat for a long time. I thought I was going crazy.
The doctor told Evangelista that she had paradoxical adipose hyperplasia four months after she finished her last session (PAH). PAH is a very rare side effect of CoolSculpting in which the fat grows instead of shrinking.
A: “He told me that no amount of dieting and no amount of exercise would ever work.”
She filed a lawsuit against CoolSculpting’s parent company in September 2021. Zeltiq is the company that makes CoolSculpting. If she wins, she’ll get $50 million in damages. She says it was a “risk” that she didn’t know about, which has made it hard for her to get work.
It was a big step today for me to try to fix something I’ve been wronged by for more than five years. A lot of media has said that I am no longer who I used to be, and that’s how I felt at the time.
As she said this, “PAH has not only destroyed my job, but it has also sent me into a cycle of deep depression and self-loathing.” The process has made me a recluse.
It was Evangelista’s goal to help other women who have been through the same things that she has.
“I hope I can get rid of some of the shame and help other people in the same situation as me.” “That’s what I want to do.” I’m no longer going to hide.
There have been more than 100 scientific publications and more than 11 million CoolSculpting treatments done around the world. CoolSculpting side effects, including PAH, “continue to be well-documented in the CoolSculpting information for patients and health care providers.”
