Fat freezing or cryolipolysis is a popular cosmetic procedure. It is estimated that clinics and spas carry out more than eight million treatments of this type each year in the world.

But lately it has been making headlines.

The Canadian model Linda EvangelistaKnown as one of the supermodels of the 1990s, she has filed a US $ 50 million lawsuit for the treatment that she claims “brutally deformed” her.

He says he has developed paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), a rare side effect that it produced just the “opposite of what was promised”, by increasing fat cells; a risk, according to the ex-model, about which she was not informed.
