Jazz Jennings Shows Inspirational Gender Confirmation Surgery Scars on Instagram

By

YouTuber, reality star, and LGBTQ+ activist Jazz Jennings showing off her gender confirmation surgery scars is exactly the kind of 2020 inspo we need. On January 1, 2020, Jazz took to Instagram to share a swimsuit pic that shows surgery scars she proudly calls "battle wounds." Jazz wrote, "These are my scars on full display in #2019. I'm proud of my scars and love my body just the way it is. I call them my battle wounds because they signify the strength and perseverance it took to complete my transition."

Jazz Jennings previously shared that she had surgical complications.

Back in October 2018, Jazz told ABC News that she had experienced complications when it came to her gender confirmation surgeries. When doctors performed surgery on Jazz, they actually needed to use a new surgical method. Jazz, who was assigned a male at birth, began using hormones at a pretty young age, so her body wasn't able to develop enough tissue needed to construct a vagina. Instead of undergoing one surgery, Jazz ended up going through two.
