British supermodel Naomi Campbell is recovering from emergency abdominal surgery to remove a cyst in Sao Paulo Brazil. The notoriously hot tempered model flew all the way from London to have the surgery, which reportedly took four hours.

On Tuesday, Campbell was said to be "resting comfortably" at Hospital Sirio-Libanes, one of Sao Paulo’s best hospitals.

Doctors confirmed the 37-year old had undergone laparoscopic surgery for a cyst but would not elaborate further on her condition.

"It was an emergency operation, but everything went well," Campbell’s surgeon said on Tuesday. "There were no incidents or problems that worried me during the operation and she is completely cured."


Campbell often visits Brazil, where she has been known to show up at Carnival festivities and is frequently photographed at parties with Brazilian celebrities.
