Side effects of a procedure have Linda Evangelista “deformed”. She reached an agreement with the company she was suing.

Linda Evangelista (57) had withdrawn from the public in recent years because the side effects of a cosmetic procedure have “deformed her forever”, as she revealed on Instagram in 2021. In a corresponding lawsuit, they have now agreed that explains the supermodel in a new post.

Evangelista is looking forward to putting the matter behind her and looking forward to “the next chapter” in her life. She was “truly grateful” for the support she received. The 57-year-old now wants to try to leave everything behind, also explains an anonymous source close to Evangelista’s “People”. After years of “hiding”, the model is going out again. She therefore feels “loved” by the goodwill from the fashion industry, from her colleagues and from fans.

“I can’t live like this anymore”

The magazine had reported in Februarythat Evangelista allegedly sued the manufacturer of the devices for $50 million for the procedure. However, it is not known how much compensation the company is now paying the model.

At the time, she also spoke to “People” about her ordeal: “I can no longer live like this, in secret and in shame, I can no longer live with this pain, I’m ready to finally talk about it.” Within three months of her treatment, she noticed swelling on her chin, hips and chest. So the very areas that she “wanted to shrink suddenly grew and hardened. Then they went numb.” A doctor diagnosed her with paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), a rare side effect of the procedure she underwent. Tissue volume increases rather than decreases at the treated site.

first time in September 2021 Evangelista had made it publicthat the surgery had “deformed her forever” and as a result made her “depressed” and ultimately a “hermit”. Evangelista recently returned to modeling. She showed up on Instagram in a shot for Fendi – and promoted a runway show for the company, which will be held in New York on September 9th.
