Hello cheekbones! Slimmed down Adele shows off side effect of throat surgery

Vanishing before our eyes! Adele tweeted a picture of herself looking decidedly thinner this afternoon

Adele's much documented throat surgery is said to be the best hope of saving her unique singing voice.

But it appears that the procedure has had some side-effects.

The 23-year-old tweeted a photo pf herself looking decidedly thinner this afternoon.

The snap shows Adele sporting her usual beehive and eye makeup, but the star's face looks much slenderer than previously.

She accentuated her more defined cheekbones with blusher, but there is no doubt that she has lost weight.

The star captioned the picture: 'Captioned 'Back on the grind. Hair and make up did. Merry Christmas! Axx'

Possibly the surgery has made eating rather more uncomfortable than usual.

The leaked list of backstage snacks for Adele's cancelled North America tour gave an insight into her usual tastes.

She had required that cupboards be stocked with a plate of assorted individually wrapped sandwiches which include chicken salad but not containing tomatoes, vinegar, chili or citrus fruit.

The singer also likes a selection of fresh fruit, 'squeezy' bottles of clear honey, 12 small bottles of still water and an assortment of chewing gum.

Her tour bus was also to be stocked with a selection of 'bite size' chocolate bars, box of museli, six cereal bars, 24 bottles of still water, a carton of orange juice and a carton of apple juice.

On the move: Adele, who already looked slimmer earlier this month, is looking for a new home in the country after being told that the London smog may harm her vocal chords

The tour rider stated that hosts must liaise with the artist production manager to discuss options for after-show food; 'We will require food (Pizzas? Sandwiches? Something more exciting?) to feed 26 hungry people.'

Adele is currently looking for a new home in West Sussex, to aid her recovery from throat surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal cord last month.

'The operation went well but she still needs to take good care of herself' a source told the Mirror.

'Adele is a London girl through and through, but she’s never been parti cularly into the showbiz circuit so when it was suggested she move out of the city, she agreed immediately.'

Tottenham-born Adele is said to be looking at properties priced between £2 and £3million.

The singer was operated on in Massachusetts by the same US doctor who treated Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

'The idea is for her to live in the countryside, away from the capital’s smog and pollution.'

'She’s desperate to be fit for the Grammys and be back singing as soon as possible,' the source continued.

Adele updated fans on her progress via her website after the surgery, writing: 'The operation was a success and I’m just chilling out now until I get the all-clear from my doctors.'

Adele was forced to cancel tour dates and promotional appearances in the U.K and the U.S for the rest of the year due to her illness.

A spokesman at the Massachusetts General Hospital said she underwent vocal chord microsurgery to stop recurrent bleeding from a benign polyp.

The condition is usually caused by unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture.

The hospital added that Adele went to Boston to undergo the surgery with Dr Steven Zeitels, director of the hospital's Voice Centre.
