As you know, less than a year ago, Carrie Underwood received more than 40 stitches after a bad fall outside her home.

In a new interview with Redbook, Carrie revealed that her time away from the music scene was filled with ups and downs.

She’s the first one to admit the time may have been filled with more downs than ups, but it was a time for her to reflect and grow.

Immediately following the injury, Carrie was very self conscious about her appearance.

These days, she has people tell her this publication is saying such and such about her, or this one said she’s recovering after plastic surgery.

When Redbook brought that up, Carrie said she wished she did get plastic surgery because her scar would be less noticable.

We happen to think Carrie looks great and has come a long way since the fall.

You don’t need plastic surgery Carrie, you’re beautiful.
