Selena Gomez shows off kidney transplant scar in empowering swimsuit photo

Selena Gomez is proud of what she’s gone through. The singer got personal with her 193 million Instagram followers, sharing with fans a glimpse of the scar from her 2017 kidney transplant. Gomez, 28, posed in a blue swimsuit to promote her friend’s new line, making the scar visible on her right inner thigh. It’s a big step for the actress, who previously found it “difficult” to show the mark.

“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” the Rare Beauty founder wrote on Thursday. “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.”
