Doctors amputate Zsa Zsa Gabor's right leg. Gabor, who turns 94 on Feb. 6, was being watched carefully, but there were no complications, doctors at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center said after the surgery.

"The surgery today went well, however, she is in frail health so we will continue to monitor her closely," said Dr. David Rigberg, associate professor of vascular surgery.

Gabor, who had an infection in her leg for several months, was hospitalized on Jan. 2 after efforts to save her leg with antibiotics failed. Three quarters of Gabor's leg was removed, starting from just above her knee.

TMZ reports that there were no unexpected difficulties incurred during the procedure, and Gabor is expect to heal. Doctor are keeping an extra eye on her just in case because of her age.
