LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Elizabeth Taylor went home from the hospital Wednesday, a week after she underwent brain surgery and a day before her 65th birthday.

Wearing a bandana around her head, Taylor smiled and waved as she left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she underwent surgery February 20 to remove a benign brain tumor. Doctors have said she is making a good recovery.

"She was released this afternoon and is at home resting comfortably," said her spokeswoman, Maria Pignataro.

Before entering the hospital last week, she was honored at an early birthday celebration that also served as a fund-raiser for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

Taylor, who first won moviegoers' hearts with her role as a young equestrienne in "National Velvet," received best-actress Oscars for her roles in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "Butterfield 8."
