How does Selena Gomez have kidney transplant scar on thigh? Shouldn't it be somewhere on belly ?

    A conventional kidney transplant is installed from the back. The other kidneys are left in place. They don’t remove them typically. The scar she has is to reveal that she required the use extra tissue in order to repair a problem.

    Your kidneys are closer to your back, than your front.

    I would think it would be on the back

    This is a second scar. The scar on her thigh is from an emergency follow-up procedure she had after her 2017 kidney transplant. Her new kidney was turning around in her body. Her inner thigh scar is likely from removal of the femoral vein to rebuild an arterial connection to the newly transplanted kidney.

    For many organs yes, but it was no harder to get to the kidneys through the leg than it is through the belly. And if she wishes to wear bathing suits in the future, the like may have been slightly preferable to her over her stomach.
