Selena Gomez shared a new swimsuit photo unlike any other, showing off her kidney transplant scar. The 28-year-old posed in a light-blue, one-piece swimsuit on Thursday, writing that she feels "confident in who I am" today. Gomez underwent kidney transplant surgery in 2017 after her friend Francia Raisa donated a kidney to the "Boyfriend" singer.
"When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar," Gomez 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 and what I went through...and I’m proud of that." She also tagged La'Mariette, the maker of the swimsuit. "Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that...all bodies are beautiful," Gomez wrote.
