Linda Evangelista’s Cosmetic Procedure Nightmare - PEOPLE Every Day

PEOPLE Every Day

On a special episode of PEOPLE Every Day, supermodel Linda Evangelista breaks her silence on a cosmetic procedure which, she says, left her “brutally disfigured.” After living in hiding for five years, Evangelista sits down for an exclusive interview with PEOPLE’s Deputy West Coast editor Jason Sheeler. She tells the harrowing story of how a body-contouring treatment left her diagnosed with a rare side-effect known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH). In the interview, Evangelista, now 56, also shares how she skyrocketed to supermodel status, how she discovered her love of fashion, how her famous “Freedom” video appearance came to be, and how the fashion industry has changed over the years. Plus, she tells Sheeler how this experience has impacted her relationship with her 15-year-old son — and has left her “agoraphobic.”
