The singer underwent surgery on Tuesday (October 25) and has described the procedure as a complete success.

The frontman, who is 59 years old, wrote on his official website Paulstanley.com that he "wanted to remedy a few minor issues that come with forty years of preaching rock 'n' roll."

Kiss are currently putting the finishing touches to their 20th studio album 'Monster', which is due for release in January 2012. The tracklisting has yet to be formally confirmed, but songs titled 'Hell Or Hallelujah', 'Born To Be A Sinner', 'Out Of This World', 'Are You Ready?' and 'Wall Of Sound' are all reportedly set to feature on the album.
