Schumer shared in January that she decided to get liposuction after struggling with her body image. She decided it was important to be open about the procedure because she didn't want people to think that she had slimmed down naturally.

"I wanted to share it with people, just because I can't lie about myself," she told Hoda Kotb in March on her podcast Making Space with Hoda Kotb. "I just can't do it. I can't be like, 'Yeah, crunches. And I've just been eating smoked salmon,' you know? So I had to be real."

But Schumer also felt conflicted talking about the procedure when it's prohibitively expensive for many people.

"I was feeling bad because it's, like, such a privilege thing," she said. "And I'm like, 'Well, you know, people with money, they also drive nice cars' … So, my 'nice car' is that I had, you know … a liter of fat sucked out of my belly."

The decision for liposuction came after Schumer said she realized that the part of her stomach just above her C-section scar from giving birth to her 2½-year-old son Gene wasn't going to improve with small changes like "grilled chicken and walks." 

She opted for liposuction once she was healed from having her uterus and appendix removed in September 2021, which she did to end her endometriosis pain.

Schumer has said that she's now 170 lbs. after the surgery, but it wasn't about the number on the scale or to fit into some Hollywood ideal.

"It's not about needing to be slamming, because I've never been famous for being hot, but I'd reached a place where I was tired of looking at myself in the mirror," she previously told The Hollywood Reporter.

Firstly as we get started, can I just say that camDown !
