    Ya, seems more like aging/menopause, but it's her perception of what *things* changed her looks and she believes it was the CoolSculpting. Just reminds me of when Carrie Underwood was prepping her audience for her 'gruesome' facial reveal and no one could even tell she had an injury...

    i dunno. i can see her side of it. i imagine that her cosmetic/plastic surgeon said Yes! do coolsculpt! no downside and you'll have positive results! not knowing linda would fall in the small percentage of treatment failures. her overall weight gain may be due to depression associated with the failed procedure.

    how linda E deals with menopause and the challenges is going to be different from those of us who haven't made our livelihood based on our looks.

    I didn’t know her condition is a rare complication from CoolSculpting, and on one hand, can understand her dissatisfaction given that the procedure didn’t go as expected (though it is likely she signed informed consent forms with the PAH complication listed). On the other hand, as a friend of mine wrote in one of my favorite songs of his, “You gotta be tough as hell to get old.” That perhaps is doubly tough for those whose careers originated with and were based on appearance.

    That's what it seems like to me. The side effects from the procedure lead to depression that lead to her weight gain. It would be quite an adjustment for someone who was paid for their looks. I wouldn't call it a disfigurement, but to her, it is.

    I'm calling BS. I've had CS on several body parts. The worst that can happen is bruising and swelling on the treatment site.

    I do think Carrie was genuine about her injury though. And it did change her looks. She still looks ok but it has to be weird to look in the mirror and your face is different.

    Exactly. If all you're known for is your looks it has to be harder.

    About 20 years ago Linda was down here for some show, and was interviewed on TV about how she keeps her model looks (given she was in her 30s by then) and she rambled on about her healthy lifestyle and how she eats a lot but it's all the right food, blah, blah, blah, and how models HAVE to stay healthy to have the energy to do their jobs (lol, isn't that what cocaine is for?). That night a friend of mine who worked in fashion had dinner with her and said Linda consumed nothing all night but cigarettes and macchiatos. There's only so long you can keep that up, and I think THAT's what caused her weight gain - getting old and needing to eat like a regular human being to survive.
    Be excellent to each other.

    Permanently deformed? From the pictures I just looked at, she looks like an average woman, and certainly not this hideous beast she's making it sound like, especially for 56 years old. And honestly, it looks like she's just gained weight by looking at her face and neck, and they didn't cool sculpt that.

    I get she was thought of as this stunning creature in the good ole days (Although I thought she was one of the least attractive super models) you can't stay 25 forever; accept your age, own it and move on.

    I think that is one my bigger issues with her statement. She seems to have also gained weight around her face and that is not a complication of cool sculpting. I think it would be one thing, if she were walking around looking like 1980's/1990's Linda Evangelista, but had this noticeable midsection. But the other question I have is - exactly what kind of modeling was she expecting to do at this age? None of her contemporaries are out there modeling clothes, as far as I know. More like lifestyle modeling - a la Cindy Crawford.

    Speaking of favorite supermodels, mine was always Christy Turlington. From taking looks at recent pictures, I think she has had little to no work done, still appears svelte, and is married to the same guy she married in 1998 - Edward Burns.

    Ya, Imma gonna reserve my sympathy for the millions made redundant, not because they didn't have the skillsets to continue in their careers, but because they simply aged out.

    It's most disheartening when I see the resemblance to my mother. Just all the signs you associate with someone who is older, jowels, greys, extra fat in all the same places as mom. *sigh*

    ^^ my neighbor was just telling me that it's disheartening to see that her body has turned into her moms, exactly. I think her words were, "I used to look just like [daughter, 14], and used to wonder why my mom was such an apple shape. Now I'm her exact shape".

    At 41 it seems harder for me to loose weight but I'm working hard to not have the same body as my own mom, though our legs are just the same *sigh

    I can completely sympathize with your neighbor! I used to be so tiny - I'm 5'2" & in high school I weighed 89 lbs. When I got married, I weighed 98 lbs. I remember when I hit 100 lbs in my mid/late 20s, I thought I was fat. Good Lord, I was so ridiculous. My mom is an apple, as is her entire side of the family. Well lucky-ducky me, I'm an apple, & since menopause, it's gotten so much worse! I absolutely hate my midsection with the intensity of 1000 burning suns. And of course, menopause generally makes a lot of women bigger in that area to begin with. Add that to being an apple, & there are times I feel like I look 6 months pregnant. No matter what I do, that weight just wants to hang around & piss me off. And I bloat so much! I can wear a pair of shorts one day & they'll be fine, & the next day the waist will be so tight it hurts, then the next day I'll be able to wear them with no problem. I HATE IT!

    I’m 39, and I hope I age just like my mom. Her body is banging and she is like 72. She looks amazing, face and body. I hope my body looks like hers when I age but unfortunately I don’t have her butt. I’m an hourglass and she’s a pear but an amazingly proportioned pear. Sigh.
