Selena Gomez Reveals Scar From A Surgery, Says “All Bodies Are Beautiful”
Selena Gomez recently took to Instagram to reveal a scar on her inner thigh, which was left following a kidney transplant three years ago. The 28-year-old pop star received the kidney from her friend Francia Raisa after suffering complications from the autoimmune disease, lupus.
She told fans she had previously been ashamed to let others see the scar, but now felt “proud” of her past and was ready to show it off.
The former Disney Channel star posted a photo on her official Instagram page, standing in front of an outside swimming pool in a baby blue swimming costume, with her hands above her head.
“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that.” she captioned the post.
