Gomez spoke out about her life post-surgery as one of 'People' magazine's People of the Year.
Selena Gomez has learned to accept her body as it is. That includes embracing the scars left behind by a 2017 kidney transplant due to complications from the chronic autoimmune disease lupus.
In an interview with People magazine as part of their People of the Year issue, Gomez, 28, opened up about how she's learned to appreciate the marks on her body and find power in them.
"At the beginning of my recovery, I was a little bit sad. You're already going through something, and then there's the added pressure of 'I don't look the same. I don't know if I feel comfortable in my body," said Gomez, who was named one of the magazine's People of the Year along Dr. Anthony Fauci, Regina King and George Clooney.
