Linda Evangelista, one of the most beautiful women in the world, was left “brutally disfigured” by a popular fat freezing procedure.

The famous fat freezing technique “brutally damaged” the Canadian supermodel in September of last year.

One of the most well-known figures in the 1990s fashion world, Linda Evangelista, has recalled having tape and elastic used to hold her face back during a picture shoot for British Vogue.

The Canadian beauty claimed that a cosmetic fat freezing operation in September of last year had left her “permanently deformed” and “brutally scarred.”

The 57-year-old said that the CoolSculpting procedure caused paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, in which the size of her body’s adipose tissue rose rather than shrunk.

She later reached a settlement with Zeltiq Aesthetics, the maker of CoolSculpting.

Evangelista said that make-up artist Pat McGrath used tape and elastics to draw back her cheek, jaw, and neck while she was on the cover of British Vogue.

She appeared in a variety of clothes, but only the front of her face was seen.

Evangelista claimed, “That’s not my jaw and neck in real life, and I can’t go around with tape and elastics everywhere.

“I’m working on accepting who I am. I always believe that we are here to conjure up fantasies for photographs. Dreams are being made by us. I believe that is permitted.

She continued, “Plus, these photos take care of all my insecurities, so I got to do what I love to do.”

Denying that the photo shoot represented a comeback after several years of living as a “recluse,” she continued, “Am I mentally cured? Without a doubt. But I’m incredibly appreciative of the help I received from my peers and my profession.

I won’t be wearing a swimsuit, that much is certain. Finding work with things sticking out of me, without retouching, squeezing into things, taping things, compressing things, or tricking will be challenging.

The procedure known as cryolipolysis, or CoolSculpting, involves cooling fat so that the body’s frozen, dead fat cells may be eliminated through the liver.

Speaking of the operation, Evangelista claimed that both its advertising and her own vanity drew her to it.

“Those CoolSculpting advertisements were on constantly on CNN and MSNBC, asking viewers, “Do you like what you see in the mirror?” She claimed, “They were chatting to me.

“It had to do with patches of stubborn fat that wouldn’t go away. No recovery time, no surgery, and… I drank the magic potion because I’m a little self-centered, and I would.

She continued, nevertheless, by saying that she would not have done it if she had realized the negative consequences “may include losing your livelihood” and becoming “so depressed that you despise yourself.”

Evangelista claimed to have resolved the New York court case last month. Documents that prove the matter was resolved amicably have been seen by Sky News. Legal fees and expenses will be split equally by both parties.

A Zeltiq spokesman told British Vogue that the corporation was “pleased” with how the conflict was settled.

The spokesman stated, “Our focus continues to be on enabling confidence by providing safe, dependable beauty products and services supported by research.

“CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure for noticeable fat bulges in the nine body locations.”
