In an exclusive interview with the magazine, People, Linda Evangelista told all about the plastic procedure I left her ‘brutally mutilated’ – And the battle to take back your life. A few months ago, the former supermodel shared on social media the hell she’s been in with a clinic that left her face disfigured after a negative reaction to a procedure. The reason is that he lived in “solitude” for five years.
Evangelista, 56, recounts how emotional and physical pain has continued to haunt her in recent years, after she claims she underwent seven sessions of CoolSculpting (the popular FDA-approved “fat freezing” procedure that’s touted as a non-surgical alternative). Liposuction). The interference left her “permanently disfigured,” as she puts it.
“I love being on the stage,” he told the Weekly, crying. “Now I’m afraid to meet someone I know on the street.” “I can’t live like this anymore, hidden and ashamed,” she said. “I can’t live in this pain anymore. I’m finally ready to speak up.”
Among other details, Linda begins by saying that after three months of treatment she began to notice strange bumps on her chin, thighs, and bra, having gone through several stages: swelling, stiffness, and numbness.
“I tried to right myself, I thought I was doing something wrong,” Evangelista says, and started dieting and exercising more. “I wasn’t eating at all. I thought I was losing my mind.”
The first time she decided to go to the doctor was in June 2016, when he diagnosed her with paradoxical lip hyperplasia (PAH), a rare side effect that affects less than 1% of CoolSculpting patients, in which the freezing process causes the disease. Fat tissue thickens and expands.
“There began his hard struggle to restore his image, which would have had strong emotional consequences, as well as physical consequences.
After my first corrective surgery to try to stop PAHs, I had a repeat in 2017. “My condition hasn’t improved,” he says. “The bumps were bumps. And they’re solid. If I walk without a strap in a dress, I feel the friction almost to the point of bleeding.” Evangelista says his posture has also been affected as he can no longer put his arms along his body, as they are both deformed. “I don’t think designers will want to wear this case anymore,” he says. “I don’t look in the mirror,” he adds. “I don’t look like me.”
The model also says that one of the reasons she talks about her problem publicly is to alert others. “I hope I can free myself from some of the shame and help others who are in my same situation,” she says. “That’s my goal.”
