Selena Gomez's BFF Francia Raisa Showed Her Surgery Scar on the Red Carpet

Raisa donated a kidney to Gomez earlier this year.

About a month ago, Selena Gomez shocked fans when she revealed that she'd undergone a kidney transplant earlier this year, as part of her ongoing treatment for the autoimmune disease lupus.


The singer received the transplant from her BFF, actress Francia Raísa. The procedure left Selena with a wicked scar, a photo of which she shared online:

Now Raísa, who's starred on the Secret Life of the American Teenager and the TV adaptation of Dear White People, hit the red carpet for People magazine's "Ones to Watch" event, wearing a snappy studded white suit with a sheer shirt:

While the outfit is quite notable on its own, visible through the shirt are what are almost definitely Raísa's own scars from the transplant:

Like her BFF, Raísa seems to have took some time away from public appearances to heal, but she seems pumped and proud to be back in the spotlight:
