Amy Schumer has revealed the reason behind her stunning new body!
The actress and comedian recently opened up about undergoing liposuction and what influenced her decision in a candid interview with Chelsea Handler.
During an appearance on the “Dear Chelsea” podcast, the 40-year-old confessed that she never thought of getting cosmetic surgery until life changed her mind.
Amy Schumer Says Liposuction Was An Unexpected Move
Schumer’s name isn’t far on the list when it comes to body positivity advocates as the stand-up personality has established herself as a confident woman in the entertainment business.
However, life’s trials and tribulations slowly chipped the “Trainwreck” star’s charismatic nature until she needed a little help from doctors to keep her spirits up.
In the past, the Comedy Central alum never imagined she would get liposuction, but once she did, the mother-of-one couldn’t be happier with her decision.
During her conversation with Handler, “The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo” author said, “I got liposuction. I never thought that I was going to do anything like that.”
The Broadway actress added that the cosmetic procedure sounded like a “crazy” idea but undergoing a C-section and turning 40 was enough to change the entertainer’s mind.
Schumer explained that she began considering liposuction after suffering from endometriosis and experiencing a difficult pregnancy plus the delivery of her son Gene.
Once the “I Feel Pretty” star healed from these painful ordeals, she immediately requested the cosmetic procedure, and the 40-year-old has no regrets.

The comedian proudly told the podcast’s host that she felt “really good” about her body, which was also the reason for her honesty. In the TV personality’s words:
“I just wanted to say that, because if anybody sees me in pictures or anything and they’re like, she looks thinner, and whatever: it’s because I had a surgery. It’s too hard, and I just want to be real about it.”
On January 18, the “Snatched” star shared two pictures of herself on the beach in a black one-piece swimsuit designed with a revealing back.
The actress looked noticeably slimmer and radiated with confidence as she soaked up the sun while dropping model-like poses for the camera.
In the stunning post’s caption, the entertainer gave a special shout-out to the surgeons responsible for giving back her self-esteem. The “Expecting Amy” star wrote:
“I feel good. Finally, It’s been a journey. Thanks for helping me get my strength back @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd (lipo).”
The mother-of-one also included a side note for critics in her caption that read, “Never thought I would do anything but talk to me after your uterus doesn’t contract for 2.5 years and you turn 40.”
Haters had no place in Schumer’s post as the comment section was flooded with love and support from fans and celebrities like Sas Goldberg and Michelle Pfeiffer.
The “Life & Beth” Star’s Bittersweet Struggle With Motherhood
Last month, The Blast shared that the Comedy Central star had opened up about her experiences as a mother on Instagram.
The comedian uploaded a picture of herself with her son Gene, who she shares with her adoring husband and renowned chef Chris Fischer.
The mother rocked a makeup-free look in casual wear in the snap as she posed beside the toddler on a red toy motorcycle.
The doting parent protected her son from the public by covering his face with a red heart emoji. Taking to the caption, Schumer explained the highs and lows of raising a child.
The 40-year-old entertainer confessed that becoming Gene’s mother felt like “heaven on earth,” but feelings of “guilt and vulnerability” shrouded her happiness.
The 2-time Grammy nominee added that these emotions were difficult to handle as she couldn’t drink away her problems like she used to.
The “The Humans” star described the ordeal as a sensation similar to her heart being outside her body. In conclusion, the mother-of-one wrote, “When you were in love and scared. Send help!!!”
The actress’s heartfelt message touched the hearts of her fellow entertainers, including Tan France, Amanda Kloots, and Debbie Gibson, who flooded the comment section with support.
