Los Angeles: A botched cosmetic procedure left her shattered six years ago but `American Pie` star Tara Reid seems to have gained confidence after undergoing a corrective surgery.
Reid stepped out in a bright green string two-piece as she attended the second annual Love Festival at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
It`s the first time that the actress has been photographed in a bikini since doctors corrected previous surgery that left her disfigured, Us Weekly reported.
She went under the knife in 2004, but her joint liposuction and breast enhancement operation went drastically wrong.
"It looked like I got completely butchered up. I had body contouring, but it all went wrong. My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing," the 34-year-old star had said about the disastrous operation.
But Reid is once again comfortable in her own skin - so much so that she even posed for Playboy in December last year.
"I`m relaxed. I`m a young woman with confidence ... At the end of the day, I go to sleep knowing who I am. I`m happy with my life now, and I`d like to keep it this way," she had said.
Reid, who saw her career disintegrate in recent years, is due to appear in a low-budget thriller `The Fields`.
