Supermodel Linda Evangelista opened herself up to the public after she suffered a botched CoolSculpting treatment that left her body disfigured. She's proud to announce that the case is finally settled and she's ready to move on.
Last year Linda sued Zeltiq, the parent company of CoolSculpting, because she was "brutally disfigured" by the procedure "which did the opposite of what it promised." The treatment increased her fat cells instead of decreasing them and left her "permanently deformed even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries." She said the whole experience left her "unrecognizable." She's happy to finally leave it all behind her, though.
Linda Evangelista Announces That She "Settled the CoolSculpting Case"
In an Instagram post today, Linda, 57, shared that she "settled the CoolSculpting case" and she's "happy to put this matter behind me."
"I look forward to the next chapter of my life with friends and family," she wrote. "I am truly grateful for the support I have received from those who have reached out."
Earlier this year, Linda shared photos of how the CoolSculpting procedure ruined her appearance and left her disfigured. The purpose of her transparency was to educate women on what can happen when you partake in cosmetic procedures.
But regardless of what happened in the past, Linda has made a modeling comeback. She is featured in a brand new Fendi campaign, posing in different hats and purses. She's promoting a Fendi fashion show that is going to celebrate the brand's 25th anniversary on September 9 in New York City.
She expressed her gratitude to everyone involved in the campaign.
