Los Angeles, Sep 25 : Singer Selena Gomez has showed off her scar from a kidney transplant in a new social media post.
She says she now feels confident and is proud of what she had gone through.
The 28-year-old singer took to Instagram to post a photo of herself in blue swimwear.
She is seen posing with one leg placed on a rock, which puts her inner thigh scar on display. She got the scar from an emergency follow-up procedure after her kidney transplant in 2017.
"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," she captioned the post.
"Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through...and I'm proud of that.
T - Congratulations on what you're doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that...all bodies are beautiful."
Her Instagram followers showed support and applauded her gesture, in the comment section.
