According to ZELTIQ CoolSculpting Lawsuit, Evangelista has endured a complete loss of income, persistent pain, social anxiety, and agoraphobia as a result of the ZELTIQ CoolSculpting side effects and following corrective operations.

Along with the $50 million in restitution, the lawsuit seeks punitive and/or exemplary damages for ZELTIQ’s deliberate, fraudulent, and irresponsible activities, as well as attorneys’ fees and litigation costs.

Evangelista underwent seven CoolSculpting treatments from August 2015 to February 2016 based on ZELTIQ’s representation of the procedure as “safe and effective” and “non-invasive.”

When Evangelista began experiencing hard, bulging, painful masses under the treated skin in June 2016, she was diagnosed with paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), a result of CoolSculpting that leads to the overgrowth of fatty tissues.

According to the ZELTIQ CoolSculpting Lawsuit, after reporting her responses to ZELTIQ, Evangelista had two corrective liposuction operations conducted by a doctor designated by ZELTIQ, both of which failed and left her with extensive scars. Evangelista claims that ZELTIQ promised to pay for her initial corrective surgery but that she was asked to sign a Confidentiality Agreement as well as a Release agreement 24 hours before the operation. ZELTIQ has not reimbursed the cost.

ZELTIQ Aware of the Risks

As per the ZELTIQ CoolSculpting Lawsuit, had ZELTIQ disclosed and cautioned consumers appropriately, Evangelista and other people would never have chosen CoolSculpting treatment. Instead, ZELTIQ purposefully misled consumers in order to persuade them to buy CoolSculpting treatments at a higher cost and therefore increase the company’s profit margin.

In addition, according to court documents, ZELTIQ was aware of the possibility of PAH and other harmful outcomes as early as March 2013, when the company highlighted these possible hazards in an update to investors.

Moreover, ZELTIQ failed to warn consumers about these risks, purposely withheld or suppressed this information, and/or deemphasized the actual risk of PAH associated with CoolSculpting.

Even ZELTIQ CoolSculpting advertisements and promotional material proclaimed the process to be “as easy as getting a pedicure” and cited only a few side effects, if any at all, once the surgery was completed. According to court records, the company allegedly made similar statements on its Facebook page while omitting any information of the risk of PAH.
