Model Linda Evangelista, 56, ‘Unrecognizable’ after being ‘wildly disfigured’ as a result of cosmetic medical treatment, as she explains herself on her Instagram account.
Linda Evangelista deplores being “permanently disfigured” after cold lipolysis (a fat-reducing intervention) she underwent had the opposite effect, as she explained in a statement titled “The Truth, My Story.”
This Thursday, Evangelista explained on his social network, which has more than 900,000 followers, why She had disappeared from the public view and had not returned to the podiums like many of her comrades, The legendary “models” of the 90s, among them Claudia Schiffer or Cindy Crawford.
The reason: “I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure, which did the opposite of what I promised,” she explains.
“It increased my fat cells instead of decreasing them and left me permanently disfigured even after undergoing two painful corrective surgeries, but to no avail. It remained, as some media outlets put it, ‘unrecognizable,'” he adds.
“I developed paradoxical lip hyperplasia, or PAH, which is a risk I was not informed of prior to the procedure,” Evangelista explained.
The model claims that hyperplasia not only destroyed her lifestyle, but also plunged her into a deep depression. “I am in a cycle of deep depression, deep sadness, and the lowest levels of self-loathing. I have become reclusive.”
With this complaint he concludes in the statement: “I am trying to get rid of my shyness and make my story public. I would like to walk out my door with my head held high, even though I no longer look like myself.”
