Pop star Selena Gomez uploaded a photo on social media of herself wearing a swimsuit. In the caption, she wrote that she is proud of her surgery scar.

Selena Gomez took to Instagram in September 2020, clad in a blue swimsuit. She stood between her hot tub and a humanmade creek and flung her arms upward.

In her caption, the singer wrote: "When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar."

She added, "Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I'm proud of that."

Selena is setting out to help all her followers to do as such, regardless of what it is about themselves that they are less confident about, writing, "All bodies are beautiful."

Since 2013, Selena has been battling lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease. As a result, she received a kidney transplant from her friend, Francia Raísa, in 2017.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
