Selena Gomez is not afraid anymore to own up her kidney transplant scar

Selena – who received a kidney transplant from friend and actress Francia Raisa in 2017 following complications from lupus – shared an emotional message on Instagram along with a photo that showed off her scar. "When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar," Selena wrote. "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, what I went through and I'm proud of that." This is the first time that the Lose You To Love Me singer has revealed her scar on social media. Selena previously commemorated her life-saving surgery in another way: In January of 2020, she talked about getting a tattoo of the date of her surgery in an interview, whose latest album Rare is her most raw and emotional to date, also she recently opened up about her bipolar diagnosis on Miley Cyrus’s Bright Minded Instagram series. If there's one thing Selena learned from the past few years of challenges, it's the power in staying vulnerable.
