Angie Everhart is proud of her scars.

The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model made a rare red carpet appearance on Tuesday night, attending the premiere of "Muppets Most Wanted" with son Kayden Bobby, boyfriend Carl Ferro and his own 8-year-old daughter. 

This marks one of the few appearances the red-headed stunner has made since beating Stage 1 thyroid cancer last May -- and she clearly has no problem showing off her surgery scar.

The 44-year-old is now cancer-free.

And while she seemed in great spirits last night, she found herself back in the hospital this morning -- where she's undergoing surgery for a herniated disc.

"Too many surgeries lately. No fun. Feel like I was just here," she tweeted earlier today.

Here's to a speedy recovery!
