Sarah Hyland very bravely showed off her kidney transplant scar which runs across her stomach as she sported a tiny bikini
27-year-old Sarah Hyland very bravely shared a picture of her kidney transplant scar while sporting a tiny bikini. The 'Modern Family' star took to Instagram to share a picture which showed off her scar. In the photo, fans could see the scar which runs across her stomach.
Sarah's post-surgery scar has been there since she had to go through a kidney transplant but she did not let that stop her from working her bikini. The actress has been very candid about her health issues with her 6 million Instagram followers over the past couple of years.
Sarah shared that she had undergone a kidney transplant in the year 2012 after she suffered from a chronic kidney condition.
According to Seventeen magazine, she later revealed that she had a condition which was known as kidney dysplasia — meaning that her kidneys were not properly developed while she was a baby in the womb. The condition also causes many painful cysts and also left Sarah bed-ridden for a while.
In her post, Sarah even made a light-hearted joke in the caption and shared, "#feelinmyselffriday Thought I came up with a cool new hashtag… turns out I’m wrong. ALSO. Turns out I’m not the first person to take a selfie in the bathroom… weird". Many fans and followers were very supportive and encouraged Sarah for boldly sharing the picture. One fan wrote, "Yes girl!! You are gorgeous!! ❤️" While another fan added, "Hey @sarahhyland I love that you’re rocking your scar!"
It was Sarah's father Edward James Hyland who gave her the kidney. "You know that family is always going to be there for you — no matter what. My dad gave me a freakin kidney!" she shared. "But it’s also the families that you create outside of your family. And you really find out what kind of people you’re friends with," she continued.
Recently, Sarah's boyfriend Wells Adams shared a picture on his Instagram posing with Sarah when a few people took to the comments section to poke fun at the 27-year-old's eyewear and a user wrote, "I don’t get the glasses look at all?" to which Adam responded saying, "Oh, it’s so she can see s—t". He also came to her defense when body shamers commented on Sarah's bikini picture saying "eat something" and "eat a doughnut" to which Adam said, "Eat s—t".
