Suzanne Somers has stepped out in an utterly fabulous outfit, showing off her toned legs in a pair of fluro orange mini shorts and a matching blazer for a night out with husband Alan Hamel.
The actress looked sensational as she smiled for snaps in Los Angeles, California, in the colourful ensemble, which she paired perfectly with bright orange heels and a black v-neck blouse.
She completed the summery look with a thick black belt, a chunky ring and a swipe of blush on her cheeks.
Meanwhile, Somers’ husband of over 40 years followed in her lead with the coloured theme, wearing a pair of black pants, a bright pink buttoned shirt and white jacket. The two were snapped enjoying a fun night on the town earlier this month, smiling and laughing together for the cameras.
While she appeared full of spirits during the evening, the star’s life hasn’t been easy. The 72-year-old actress and author was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 but refused chemotherapy at the time – instead opting for a lumpectomy and radiation. She then went 11 years without one of her breasts, before undergoing a pioneering procedure to regrow it using stem cell regeneration.
A few months ago Somers opened up about the procedure which allowed her to regrow her breast without using any implants.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Somers revealed she was one of the first women in the United States to legally undergo cell-assisted lipotransfer. She chose the procedure after meeting a doctor at the University of Tokyo who was leading a clinical trial on regeneration using stem cells.
“They took fat from my stomach, spun out the stem cells, discarded the weak ones, took the strong ones, injected them into this breast with, like, a turkey baster, and for a year I felt, like, electrical zippers growing the blood vessels,” she explained to the news outlet.
She’s now had a breast that is completely hers since 2012, rather than an implant – and she was so pleased with the result, she couldn’t wait to show it off.
“The first two weeks after I had it done, I was showing everybody,” she joked. “I’d whip it out – ‘cause I was so used to not having it… And then after two weeks, my husband said to me, ‘You gotta stop showing people your breast’!”
