Cher's residency at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas continues to thrive, as do reports that the legendary music diva could have had more cosmetic surgery.
The 62-year-old self-proclaimed "plastic surgery poster girl" announced in February this year that she had signed a deal to perform 200 shows over the course of the next three years, and returned to the stage in May sporting a new, polished face.
According to celebrity news site, Make Me Heal, Cher's first ever cosmetic surgery procedure was a rhinoplasty, an operation which she underwent after first seeing herself on film.
She also admits to having a breast augmentation shortly after her first child, Chastity Bono, was born in 1968. Commenting on why she decided to go ahead with the augmentation, Cher said: "Oh, because [my breasts] got so much bigger after Chastity was born, and I couldn't bear to see them deflate."
As she returns to the Las Vegas stage, Cher - along with the likes of 75-year-old comedian Joan Rivers - appears to be one of Hollywood's leading plastic surgery advocates. She is reported to have said:
"Everyone says I am terrified of getting old, but the truth is that in my job becoming old and becoming extinct are one and the same thing."
