On Wednesday, the 56-year-old supermodel partook in a post on Instagram that she went through a CoolSculpting fat-decrease methodology five years prior that left her "permanently deformed."
Linda is probably the most smoking supermodel during the ’90s who graced Vogue covers, says around 5 years prior she went through a fat-decrease technique called CoolSculpting, yet she asserts as opposed to freezing fat cells, the strategy did the specific inverse.
“To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers’ careers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised,” her statement reads.
Linda continued, “I have been left, as the media has described, ‘unrecognizable,'” and later says she then developed Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH which creates an enlarged and firm mass under the skin, claiming that it was a “risk” she was not made aware of before the procedure.
“PAH has not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing,” she shared, adding, “In the process, I have become a recluse.”
She finished up her assertion by declaring that she is suing the company, “I am moving forward to rid myself of my shame, and going public with my story.”
“I’m so tired of living this way. I would like to walk out my door with my head held high, despite not looking like myself any longer.”

Me, thinking about the unimaginable suffering Linda Evangelista had to go through because her face looked fat after cosmetic surgery. 🙄🤦🏻♀️#chronicillness #vestibularmigraine #lindaevangelista— NaE (@IsaidNae) September 23, 2021
Struggling to have sympathy with Linda Evangelista calling herself “disfigured” (fat) after a botched cosmetic procedure when there are kids born with disfigurement such as cleft lip & palate. Just… stop. pic.twitter.com/SPTcW5LtVh— Sophie (@sophienotsoph) September 23, 2021
Linda Evangelista isn’t deformed, she just kinda got fat. I mean, body positivity, sweetie. You’re fine. pic.twitter.com/bBA3KsdM3B— Sorry— but no. (@PublicHarlot) September 23, 2021
The most alarming thing about this #LindaEvangelista story is not that a cosmetic procedure didn’t work. But that she’s referring to the mildly fatter face that resulted… as having been ‘brutally disfigured’ and ‘deformed’. No scars. Just fat.— ᗰєℓιѕѕα 🍯🐝 (@SansSobriquet) September 23, 2021
To me she looks perfectly normal.🤷🏼♀️ pic.twitter.com/1ph5U8Ka9O
This is another example of stop shaming someone’s appearance you never know what someone is going through! Many people did it to Chadwick Boseman then to Linda Evangelista who’s been suffering behind closed doors 🥺 pic.twitter.com/0Gk8WMBZgt— Willie Javier Sparks (@WillieSparks) September 23, 2021
