Adele shows weight loss following throat operation

We're thrilled that Adele has now recovered from her vocal cord haemorrhage operation enough to get back to work, and boy is she looking fab-u-lous in the picture she tweeted yesterday.

The singer posted the pic with the caption: "Back on the grind. Hair and make up did. Merry Christmas!"

Adele has shared a few pictures this month, but none showed her slimmed down face quite as much as this latest snap.

She's lost a lot of weight since she burst onto the scene in 2008.

We think Adele has always looked beautiful, and we're happy to see she's doing so well after her worrying time.

She was forced to cancel her tour and live performances in the UK and USA in the autumn due to a haemorrhaged vocal cord, and underwent surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

The operation was a success and Adele kept her fans up-to-date with her progress, saying: "I'm doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all."

She missed out on the X Factor final but is hoping to be well enough for the Grammys in February, where she's nominated for a massive six awards.

It's great to see you looking so well, Adele.
