A 90s supermodel says she lives life as a recluse because of a botched cosmetic procedure she received five years ago.
On Wednesday, Linda Evangelista opened up on social media that she was left “permanently deformed” after receiving a CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure.
“Today, my big step towards righting a mistake that I have suffered for over five year,” Evangelista declared in a statement.
Paradoxical Adipose hyperplasia was a rare side effect that the supermodel claimed she suffered from. She said she didn’t know about it before she had her procedure.
“PAH has not just destroyed my livelihood, but it has also sent me into a vicious cycle of deep depression and profound sadness as well as the lowest depths self-loathing,” she stated.
She claimed that she has been through two unsuccessful corrective surgery.
Evangelista stated that she is now suing Zeltiq Aesthetics (the parent company of CoolSculpting).
