In a YouTube video, the 22-year-old influencer and Love Island star was in the process of sharing some workout clothing when she decided to explain the markings on her stomach.
Watch the clip below of when she shows her scars to viewers:
"My stomach is still not fully back to normal from my endometriosis operation," she said.
The influencer then showed "one of the little scars" from where the surgeons entered her stomach, also detailing how they went in through her belly button as well as lower down her body.
And in classic Molly-Mae style, she quipped: "I don't think you really want to see my vagina so I won't show you those ones".
She added: "not that I need to justify why my stomach doesn't look extra tight today but that is why".
Too right Molly-Mae!
Endometriosis is a disorder where tissue similar to the inner lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. Many women notice endometriosis symptoms of pelvic pain and irregular menstrual cycles.
Molly-Mae first told followers that she was undergoing keyhole surgery for the condition in June 2021: "I've told you guys for so long now that I suffer with excruciating periods and so many of you guys were commenting on my videos telling me to check for endometriosis".
"The operation was way, way harder to go through than I thought," she explained.
"My recovery time was quite a bit longer than I had planned, and I was just a bit of a mess after that surgery.
"... A lot of the things I’ve been talking to you guys about recently is like, my health is not great, I’ve been dealing with this, I’ve been dealing with that… But my endometriosis operation was the last thing now.
"I am done, hopefully I never have to see my doctor’s surgery or the hospital that I go to for a long time!"
The surgery is designed to remove deposits of the tissue that had grown outside the uterus. It is usually done by simply cutting it out or destroying it using heat or laser.We're hoping that Molly-Mae continues to have a healthy recovery!
