Brooke Burke-Charvet is arguably one of the most beautiful women in the world. And yet the gorgeous Dancing With The Stars co-host says that going through thyroid cancer and turning 40 have been "reality checks" for a woman who has long been considered a sex symbol.
Brooke Burke-Charvet opened up about the aging process to Health magazine and explained that she's no longer trying to look 25. That means it's unlikely the mom of four will be going under the knife anytime soon. Despite her flawless face, the Dancing With The Stars stunner is not putting Botox or Restylane at the top of her to-do list.
Brooke Burke-Charvet has recently battled a scary bout of thyroid cancer. She has realized that her health is more important than trying to turn back the hands of time. “You have to embrace Mother Nature a little,” she says. “I’m a woman. I’m a wife. I’m a mother of four. I don’t want to look like a 25-year-old anymore. I want to be my best healthy self.” Of course, Burke-Charvet confesses, “I would like to slow down my aging process, but I don’t want to look like a pumpkin, all swollen!”
Brooke Burke-Charvet actually did resort to the knife in her 20's. The Dancing with the Stars winner doesn’t deny having undergone a breast augmentation, saying "I've always been open in the things I've done in my life." At the time, Brooke Burke-Charvet hoped that plastic surgery would move her modeling career forward, but soon came to realize that larger breasts weren’t the answer. Brooke Burke-Charvet subsequently went back to the surgeon to swap her oversized implants for ones more suited to her body.

Today, Brooke Burke-Charvet opts to fresh the natural way. The mother of four claims feeling beautiful is as simple as choosing the right clothes. “As a rule. I don’t buy much black anymore,” she tells Health. “I want bright, happy colors. They just feel good.”
Brooke Burke-Charvet’s feel good/look good strategy is obviously working. Spotted wearing a sports bra and spandex after a recent workout in Malibu, Burke-Charvet’s physique at 41 is more phenomenal than most 25-year-olds. Despite her diagnosis and thyroidectomy this past December, Brooke Burke-Charvet’s now healthy body doesn’t show any signs of duress. Washboard abs and toned triceps are still hallmark features of the fitness guru.
