Former supermodel Linda Evangelista has settled a legal case with a company, 10 months after alleging their cosmetic procedure left her "permanently deformed"

"I'm pleased to have settled the case," she wrote on Instagram.

She claimed she was "unrecognisable" after the treatment last year

Evangelista disclosed the cause for her disappearance from the public light to her 1.2 million Instagram followers

The settlement's conditions have not been made public. The model and the procedure's sponsor, Allergan, have both been contacted by the BBC for comment
