Sarah Hyland Body-Shamed After Revealing Her Surgery Scars In Fourth of July Bikini Pics

Capital FM / Sarah Hyland Instagram Story

While The Modern Family star is quite vocal about her ongoing health problems, we actually don't know exactly what she's suffering from.

Doctors told her that she "would never have a normal life," and 27 years later, her health problems have played a big role in her day-to-day life.

About six years ago, Sarah Hyland received a kidney transplant, but unfortunately she still encountered many more health issues.

Ongoing health problems

If you follow the actress on social media, then you're aware that she's dealing with chronic pain.

"I don't mind when you say that I look pregnant. Or fat. Because I know that my face is swollen from my medication that is saving my life," she once told her followers.

A few weeks ago, she posted another concerning photo of her swollen face.

"So here is my face that was torn from work against my will. But I'm very grateful it was. Health should always come first."

Recently, two new photos of Sarah have her fans wondering, "what's going on?"

The actress shared pictures of her and her friends enjoying the Fourth of July on Instagram.

In a couple of these snaps, Sarah showed off her surgery scars with confidence.

"#scarsondisplay," Sarah wrote on one of her bikini pictures.

A day after that story, she posted this image below:

While many people applauded Sarah for her confidence and bravery, others were to quick to judge

"Eat some food for the love of God," an Instagram user wrote.

"I don't mean to "criticize" but let me tell you something, you would look better if you lost some weight. If you lost a few pounds your face and everything would look much better..." wrote another.

Some of her fans came to her defense

"Why is kindness so hard these days," someone commented.

"Go read and understand she has an incurable disease forcing her body to not be able to gain much... so go eat your words please, too rude," wrote another.

We're just so glad Sarah is feeling better! It's always nice to see this wonderful actress with a smile on her face!
