Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista says she has been left permanently deformed after taking going through a fat reduction procedure.

While revealing this on Thursday morning through her Instagram page she said she had experienced a rare cosmetic side effect termed Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) five years ago which actually increased her fat cells.

 

Linda who has been on a cycle of depression ever since the procedure went wrong said:

“I have been left, as the media has described, ‘unrecognisable’,” she told her 900,000 Instagram followers.

Evangelista explained it was the reason she’d disappeared from the public eye.

The Canadian model went on to say she had undergone “two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries” after the slimming procedure – also known as body contouring – had had the opposite effect.

“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… [a procedure] which did the opposite of what it promised,” Evangelista explained.

The iconic model started modelling at the age of 16 after she was spotted by a representative from Elite Model Management while taking part in the Miss Teen Niagara beauty pageant, also hinted on taking legal action over the procedure which left her “brutally deformed” even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessive, corrective surgeries.

 

“Today I took a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years.

‘To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers ‘ careers have been thriving, the reason is I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what they promised.

“It increased, not decreased my fats cells and left me permanently deformed even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessive, corrective surgeries.

“I have been left, as the media has described, ‘unrecognisable’.

“I have developed Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH, a risk of which I was not made aware before I had the procedures.

“PAH has not only destroyed my livelihood, but it has also sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing.

“In the process, I have become a recluse.

“With this lawsuit, 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.”
