Canadian Linda Evangelista was the face of L’Oreal and Prada. But she hasn’t been seen in public in years. The now 56-year-old has given the reason herself.
Former model Linda Evangelista says she is “brutally disfigured” due to plastic surgery. An intervention to reduce fat backfired and “did the opposite of what it promised,” the 56-year-old addressed to her fans on Instagram on Wednesday. The process increased her fat cells instead of decreasing them and “permanently disfigured me.”
Even two painful and unsuccessful corrections would not have changed that. She added, “I am unrecognizable” as the media described it. “Five years ago she underwent “CoolSculpting” and announced a lawsuit because she was not warned about the risks of the operation. The procedure led to a disease called paradoxical obesity, which is why she has been suffering in recent years From pulling out of the spotlight.
The Canadian supermodel icon, along with Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, was one of the supermodels of the 1990s who shaped the fashion shows in New York and Paris.
The botched operation turned her into a depressed and self-loathing hermit whose livelihood was destroyed. “I am tired of living like this. I want to walk out the door with my head held high, although I no longer look like myself ”, she justified her transition to the audience.
