Amy Schumer is giving fans an update on her health journey.

Schumer took to Instagram on Tuesday to share that she's finally feeling good after undergoing endometriosis and liposuction surgeries over the past year.

"I feel good. Finally. It’s been a journey thanks for helping me get my strength back @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd (lipo) never thought I would do anything but talk to me after your uterus doesn’t contract for 2.5 years and you turn 40," the comedian, who had previously sworn off cosmetic procedures, shared. "@paulvincent22 vickie Lee (acupuncture) my girl Nicole from the tox my friends and fam. Let’s go!"

In addition to posting the new swimsuit pics, Schumer revealed on her Instagram Story that she's down to 170 pounds post-surgery.


Schumer's post was met with several congratulatory messages in the comments with Mindy Kaling writing, "Healthy, sexy, happy, love it ❤️," and Michelle Pfeiffer simply commenting, "Congratulations 🙌❤️."

ET spoke with Schumer's doctors about the procedures and why she chose to be so public about her health and her body transformation.

Dr. Jordan Terner, who performed Schumer's liposuction procedure, said, at the end of the day, Schumer wanted her experience to empower others to be confident in themselves.

"She wants people to know about it. She wants to know how to make yourself feel good. She wants people to be confident, and I think the really nice thing about Amy is, she is natural. She is not looking to change who she is. She is so proud of herself and she has every right to be because she is wonderful," Terner shared. "She's not looking to change who she is, she's not looking to exaggerate her body. When done in moderation, I think that little procedures can go such a long way in making people feel better in their skin."

While Schumer did lose weight after the procedure, Terner clarified that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but rather addresses areas on your body that hold on to stubborn fat.

"Liposuction is the removal of targeted areas of fatty deposits, so it is not a weight loss procedure," Terner explained. "If there are areas that we want to focus on to kind of contour the body, stubborn areas of fat need to be removed. That's basically what liposuction addresses."

But whatever the procedure is, Dr. Terner shared that his whole objective is to make his patients feel better in their skin.

"Whatever the procedure is, whether it be liposuction, something smaller, something more invasive, being able to make someone feel better in their skin, especially when they are going through this traumatic experience, it feels amazing to me," he expressed. "But really, all I really care about is that it feels amazing to the patient and that is really why I do this." 

The traumatic experience Terner touched on was the surgery Schumer underwent in September to have both her uterus and appendix removed due to endometriosis.

"It's the morning after my surgery for endometriosis. My uterus is out," she said in a video shared to Instagram. "The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it. There was a lot of blood in my uterus."

Following the surgery, Schumer, who shares 2-year-old son Gene with husband Chris Fischer, said, "I’m sore. I have some gas pains, but other than that I already feel that my energy [is better]."

In the caption, The Humans actress advised her followers, "If you have really painful periods, you may have #endometriosis."

ET also spoke with Dr. Tamer Seckin, who performed the procedure on Schumer about endometriosis and spreading awareness about the disease that the World Health Organization says impacts roughly 10 percent of reproductive-age women and girls around the world.

"Endometriosis, is really in very simplistic terms, the period -- the menstrual blood, does not come out, eventually causing issues. If endometriosis is a tissue that's found in the endometrial cavity that produced menstruation every month, the same tissue the way it looks, settles somewhere else outside the womb, outside the uterus, and it tends to act differently," Seckin said. "There's nothing that individual young girls did wrong, it's just a multi-factorial genetic disease."

In Schumer's post-surgery video, she revealed that she had "30 spots of endometriosis," something Dr. Seckin says is typical with the type of endometriosis the comedian was diagnosed with.

"There are three types of endometriosis. The most common type is the peritoneal endometriosis. Maybe 95 percent of endometriosis patients have peritoneal endometriosis," he explained. "That means the endometriosis is like little pimples or like implants that are in the exterior lining of the organs. Very difficult to diagnosis by any test, there is no test to diagnose this, there is no imaging like sonogram or anything."

"It's only the patient very clearly complaining about their symptoms and the doctor suspecting it," Seckin continued. "When you look at these patients inside, there is multiple implants around. Amy may have 30 implants. I have removed up to 70 on patients, and some patients have little, and in Amy's situation, apparently the appendix was also involved."

Schumer has been open about the procedures she's undergone, cosmetic or otherwise. Just last month, she documented another procedure, sharing that she was getting the cheek filler she had put in her face dissolved.

"I tried getting fillers. Turns out I was already full," She wrote alongside a photo of her cheeks covered in numbing cream. "Thank God you can dissolve them I looked like #malificent thanks @drjlodnp."

Schumer's dermatologist, Dr. LoGerfo, also shared the photo and explained the procedure of dissolving fillers, which are often injected into the skin to soften wrinkles.

"Using dermal filler can be a wonderful way to replace lost volume and enhance the face, but filler placement is extremely important!" the dermatologist wrote.

"@amyschumer came to me after having filler elsewhere and we decided that where the filler was placed, was not ideal, so we dissolved it! 💉Dissolving filler is a very simple and quick treatment. I injected hyaluronidase (an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid) to dissolve it!❤️💫"

And in April, Schumer revealed to her followers that she was undergoing a coolsculpting treatment with Dr. Amy Wechsler to get rid of her "double chin."

"I just want to say that I’m blessed with the way I look and I’m not gonna be one of those people that gets stuff done. And no offense to the women that do," she joked in the video, showing off the fat-freezing machine. "This is not what you think. It’s not … this is just how I like to rest my head because it feels good. This is the only way I can really relax. It’s not that I’m getting my double chin addressed in a way. So don’t worry about it."
