Linda Evangelista shows pictures of what she describes as disfiguring CoolSculpting results.
Linda Evangelista, a famous supermodel, has been in seclusion for over five years after she claims she was damaged by a popular cosmetic operation, but she is finally speaking out about the condition that has left her body “unrecognisable.”
Evangelista, 56, spoke with People for the cover storey of the magazine’s upcoming issue about the “hiding and shame” she experienced after developing disfiguring lumps on her body, which she claims were caused by CoolSculpting, a popular fat-freezing treatment marketed as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction.
“I had a lot of fun walking the runway.” She told People, “Now I’m afraid of running into someone I know.” “I can’t continue to live in shame and secrecy like this.” I couldn’t take any more of this suffering. I’m ready to finally say something.”

Jason Sheeler, People deputy West Coast editor, told Emilie Ikeda on TODAY Wednesday, “She’s become a hermit in her own words.” “She claims to be agoraphobic.”
“She claims she hasn’t looked in the mirror in a long time. She still refuses to leave her house.”
Evangelista first revealed in an Instagram post in September that she had been unhappy and seldom stepped out in public as a result of the CoolSculpting treatments, which she claimed were the source of her depression. The supermodel, who has been on over 700 magazine covers and was prominently featured in George Michael’s “Freedom” music video in 1990, now thinks her modelling career is coming to an end.
She sued CoolSculpting’s parent firm, Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc., for $50 million in September, claiming she has been unable to work as a result of issues from seven treatments she had in 2015-16.
“I had a lot of stubborn fat.” CoolSculpting drew me in since it was non-invasive. On the People Every Day podcast, she described it as “like a spot treatment.”
Evangelista claimed in her complaint that after getting the therapy to break down fat cells in her belly, flanks, back and bra region, inner thighs and chin, she “grew hard, bulging, painful lumps beneath her skin.” She provided a sneak peek at the locations featured on the cover of People magazine.
According to her complaint, she had two liposuction operations that failed to correct the defects.
Evangelista’s case has been carefully examined, according to Zeltiq Aesthetics, which claimed in a statement that CoolSculpting “has been widely studied with more than 100 scientific papers and more than 11 million treatments conducted globally.”
Cryotherapy, or very low temperatures, are used to eliminate fat cells in this treatment. Savannah Guthrie of TODAY and Jenna Bush Hager of TODAY tried it out in 2018, and Savannah said, “It’s basically just a spot treatment.”

The FDA has authorised the operation, and the negative effects that Evangelista encountered are uncommon and are mentioned to patients. Evangelista claims she was never warned about the dangers.
She revealed to People that she was diagnosed with paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), an uncommon adverse effect of CoolSculpting in which the fatty tissue thickens and expands due to the freezing procedure.
She told People, “The bulges are protrusions.” “And they’re difficult.” In a dress, if I walk without a girdle, I will chafe to the point of bleeding. It’s not like soft fat rubbing; it’s more like hard fat rubbing.”
“She thinks the bulges and protrusions are permanent, so they may not go away,” Sheeler said. “So all she knows right now is that she doesn’t want to conceal any longer and that she wants to start talking about it.”
Evangelista claims that her metamorphosis is more than just physical.
“I don’t recognise myself physically, but I also don’t identify myself as a person,” she told People magazine.
