The complaint alleged that ZELTIQ was aware that their product could cause PAH back in 2013 according to a report to investors, but the information wasnever reported in any of its advertising and/or marketing campaigns directed to consumers.

Evangelista also claimed that ZELTIQ offered to pay for her corrective liposuction surgeries she required after being diagnosed with PAH, 但 “on the eveof the surgery, ZELTIQ conditioned payment upon Evangelista signing a confidentiality agreementto release ZELTIQ from any and all claims and to keep the terms of the Agreement and Release confidential.

She said she refused, but still underwent two corrective full-body liposuction surgeries, which resulted in alengthy and painful recovery,” and which were ultimately unsuccessful.

根据投诉, the surgeries wherethe fatty hyperplasia returnedwere the areas where CoolScultping was applied and also resulted inimmense keloid scarring” (which are enlarged, raised scars).

在 Instagram 上, the supermodel said she hasbeen left, as the media has described, ‘unrecognizable,’ 和 “become ‘a recluse.'In the court filing, she also claimed she hassevere anxiety and agoraphobiafollowing her surgeries and has lost numerous job opportunities, one of which included walking in the 2017 Versace show alongside her fellow models.

When she announced the news on Instagram, Evangelista captioned her post with the hashtags, “#TheTruth” 和 “#MyStory,” and began her statement, 写作, “Today I took a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years.

To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peerscareers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised,” she continued in the post.

She concluded by saying she hopes that by filing the lawsuit, she can move forwardto rid myself of my shame, and going public with my story. I am so tired of living this way. I would like to walk out my door with my head high, despite not looking like myself any longer.
