Tara Reid is back in a two-piece.

On Saturday in Las Vegas, the 34-year-old actress stepped out in a green bikini -- and for Reid, it was more than just a summertime kickoff.

It's the first time Reid has worn a bikini in public since two botched 2004 plastic surgery procedures have been corrected.

Reid told Us Weekly in 2006 that she asked her surgeon for "big Bs...he gave me Cs and I didn't want them." An embarassing wardrobe malfunction on a red carpet revealed what the surgeon had done to her nipples. She said the snaps "devastated her."

The Taradise star also underwent body contouring with the same surgeon. "My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing," she told Us. "I had a hernia, this huge bump next to my bellybutton. As a result, I couldn't wear a bikini. I lost a lot of work."

Since then, Reid has had corrective surgery to erase that surgeon's mistakes. She posed topless for Playboy earlier this year.

"I'm relaxed," she told Playboy at the time. "I'm a young woman with confidence ... At the end of the day, I go to sleep knowing who I am ... I'm happy with my life now, and I'd like to keep it this way."
