Linda Evangelista, one of the greatest supermodels of all time, recently filed a $ 50 million lawsuit against Zeltic Aesthetics, where she underwent a fat reduction process five years ago that left her “distorted forever”. In a post the star posted on Instagram, she shared that she suffers from horrific side effects as a result of a fat reduction procedure that left her “cruelly distorted”. She says she is experiencing a rare cosmetic side effect from the treatment which has actually increased her fat cells.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, is a treatment done by a qualified doctor or esthetician who uses a device that freezes the fat cells in a specific area, usually the stomach, thighs and buttocks, and kills the unwanted tissue. During the months following treatment, dead fat cells are naturally flushed from the body, revealing a thinner appearance of up to 20 to 25% in the patient area.
The procedure provoked a condition called PAH, “paradoxical fatty hyperplasia” that causes the opposite result of prominent fat in different areas of the body. According to the lawsuit, Evangelista underwent the process between 2015.2016, in the area of the back, abdomen and thighs, but after the treatment new fat cells grew in her body and led to a significant weight gain.
What is PAH?
Paradoxical fatty hyperplasia describes a process that activates the stem cells to grow new fat in the area of the body that has undergone the treatment, the new fat gradually appears about a month to two months after the treatment and can last up to about a year. Unofficial reports speak of a one percent rate of all cases rolling into PAH.
What causes PAH?
According to experts this is a million dollar question, since it is not really predictable and there is no way to reduce the risk alongside it, there are reports of a decrease in the incidence of PAH events in new fat dissolving devices that do not use the hitherto known suction technique.
Is there a way to fix the situation?
The last thing you should do at this point is get extra treatment of course, which can cause the plant to shed more fat cells. The only and immediate way to correct the situation is to go through a process of amputation or liposuction.
