Actress Octavia Spencer has undergone a breast lift to give her a more youthful appearance.

The Help star declared she would treat herself to a mastopexy after winning gold at the Oscars last year (12).

She told Parade magazine, "I am going to get my boobs lifted. That's going to be my first gift. I'm going to do that. I figured going into my 40s I want my boobs where they were when I was 17."

And now Spencer has revealed she secretly went under the knife to revitalise her look.

Showing off a busty and perky appearance on U.S. chat show The View on Thursday (21Feb13), she said, "I got them a little bit smaller, and a little lift. You probably can't tell too much."
