Supermodel Linda Evangelista says CoolSculpting left her ‘disfigured’; know about the procedure


Former supermodel Linda Evangelista recently took to Instagram to share that she was left “permanently deformed” and “unrecognizable” after undergoing two unsuccessful corrective surgeries five years ago.

“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 Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised,” she wrote.

What is CoolSculpting?

Speaking with indianexpress.com, Dr VK Sharma, professor and Head of Dermatology at Sharda Hospital, Greater Noida, said, “CoolSculpting is used to freeze the body fat. In this procedure, no surgery or needle is required. It is one of the new ways of body sculpting. Previously ultrasonic waves, radio frequency having been used for the same purpose. As a non-invasive treatment, it has several benefits over traditional surgical fat removal procedures.”

What exactly is done?

Dr Saurabh Shah, Dermatologist, Bhatia Hospital, Mumbai explained that it is done by applying a “soothing and lubricating gel to the target area, after which cool freezing waves are passed from the machine though the specific probe to the targeted fat cells. The gel acts as protective barrier to the skin against these waves.”

What are the side-effects?

Experts were quick to add that “skin burn, irregular skin and ache at the treatment site” are some of the common side-effects, and that “one need to be extremely careful.” Dr Sharma also stressed that after the procedure, one needs to do regular exercise, eat a a limited diet and try not limit calorie intake.

How much does the procedure cost?

Prices for CoolSculpting vary. “Abroad, the sessions are charged at approximately 1,000-2,000 dollars (I.e INR 75000 – 150000) per session. However in India, it is about 25k – 30k per session depending upon the target body area involved,” Dr Shah informs.

In the post, the Canadian model also informed that she was filing a lawsuit against the company and taking “a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years.”

She further said she has developed Paradoxical Adipose Pyperplasia or PAH, “a risk of which I was not made aware before I had the procedures.” “PAH has not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing,” she added.

“In the process, I have become a recluse”.
