Veteran Brit rocker Rod Stewart has reportedly gone under the knife and had a face lift.

The BABY JANE hitmaker, 59, has been becoming increasingly aware of his advancing years and hates looking old next to his photographer-turned-model girlfriend Penny Lancaster, 34, according to American gossip website PAGESIX.COM.

The site claims Stewart had an operation with plastic surgeon RENATO CALABRIA, who was recently linked to the stunning looks of Sharon Stone in magazine US WEEKLY.

Despite the magazine's claims, Stone's publicist denied the Basic Instinct actress had sought surgical assistance to her face and said "she hasn't had any work done ever".
