Supermodel Linda Evangelista says she was left 'permanently deformed' by fat freezing cosmetic procedure



Linda Evangelista, a Canadian fashion model and one of the top supermodels from the 1990s has revealed that she was left "permanently deformed" by a cosmetic procedure.



Sharing her pain on Instagram, Evangelista said she developed paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), a rare side effect of the treatment five years ago. This reportedly increased her fat cells and destroyed her source of livelihood.



The model further revealed that she fell into "a cycle of deep depression", which led to her becoming a recluse.







Evangelista who 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.
