Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, and Christy Turlington are among the supermodels who are showing their support for Linda Evangelista after she claimed she was left 'permanently deformed' by a fat-freezing procedure.

The 56-year-old fashion icon announced on Instagram Wednesday that she is suing Zeltiq Aesthetics after undergoing its CoolSculpting procedure in 2016, saying she developed paradoxical adipose hyperplasia — a rare side effect of cryolipolysis in which the treated area becomes larger, rather than smaller.

Dozens of famous models, actors, and designers flocked to the comments to praise Evangelista for opening up about her struggle, including members of her '90s modeling cohort that the New York Times dubbed the 'Magnificent Seven.'

'I mean to have the president of the United States say that he's been patient but his patience is wearing thin. That's not how the American people expect to be spoken to by our elected leader.

'I can honestly say that I broke down in tears reading this,' Christensen, 52, wrote.

'Not only because I knew in my heart you somehow had been quietly going through something deeply personal and disturbing but also because I thought of all the scars life leaves on us all, whether physical or emotional and how long we suffer mostly in silence and alone.

This has now explained the former Topmodel Linda Evangelista to the public now and make millions of people admitted that the last few years the purest hell had been for them.

In Evangelista's social media statement, she explained her absence from the spotlight over the past five years, saying the non-surgical cosmetic procedure left her 'brutally disfigured.'

'Today I took a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years,' Evangelista wrote. 'To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers' careers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq's CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised.

During a cryolipolysis procedure such as CoolSculpting, a device that is usually set to a below freezing temperature is applied to fat deposits, which is supposed to cause cell death in the fat tissue.'

'It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently deformed even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessful corrective surgeries,' Evangelista explained. 'I have been left, as the media described, "unrecognizable.'''

Linda Evangelista pays tribute to her son amid CoolSculpting lawsuit

According to Healthline, the increased fat deposits aren't harmful, but they also don't appear to go away on their own over time. The 'very rare' condition is most common in men who have undergone cryolipolysis, though it can still affect women.

Evangelista claimed she wasn't properly warned of the potential side effects associated with the CoolSculpting procedure.

'I have developed Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH, a risk of which I was not made aware before I had the procedures,' she wrote.

'PAH has not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing. In the process, I have become a recluse.

'With this lawsuit, I am moving forward to rid myself of my shame, and going public with my story. I'm so tired of living this way. I would like to walk out my door with my held held high, despite not looking like myself any longer.'
