Veteran pop star Cher happily concedes she's had plastic surgery - but insists she's not gone under the knife as much as fans think.

The 57-year-old TURN BACK TIME singer was spotted coming out of a Beverly Hills, California surgeon this week (ends04JUL03) clutching a bag of herbs and vitamins.

The supplements schedule is a natural alternative to surgery, and will help Cher fight the ageing process.

She says, "It didn't occur to me people would think that these weren't my cheeks, or this wasn't my chin or that I'd had calf implants, had my ribs removed.

"It was in some magazine and people took it seriously."
