This Valentine’s Day, Chrissy Teigen was all about celebrating self-love and encouraged her fans to do the same.

On Sunday, the 35-year-old took to the 'gram and flashed her naked body (at least part of it) on her Story, which revealed the scars on her breasts and bandages on incisions on her lower stomach.

Last year, the Lip Sync Battle host had surgery to remove her breast implants she had since she was 20 years old.

“They've been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me!” she said.

Earlier this month, Teigen also underwent endometriosis surgery to alleviate pain from the disorder, which causes uterine lining tissue to incorrectly grow outside of the uterus.

"Usually I'm really good after [surgery]," she said at the time. "This one's a toughie. My whole belly got numbed. It's gonna be numb for like, a couple days. Couple of the next days, hopefully they'll stay that way. It makes it hard, every little cough and stuff. But it is truly still better than the contractions and the pain of endo."

Her latest surgery came just months after the brunette beauty and husband John Legend — who share daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2 — revealed the loss of their unborn child, Jack, on September 30. 

The former Sports Illustrated model has been documenting her journey following the tragic miscarriage from her mental health, her sobriety and changing body.

"This is me and my body, just yesterday. Even though I'm no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been," she captioned the photo of herself on Wednesday, December 23. "And I have no idea why i still have this bump, honestly. It's frustrating."

While noting she is "proud of where this entire journey took my body and mind in other ways," the mother-of-two admitted: "I love being pregnant, so so much, and I'm sad I never will be again." Nevertheless, Teigen is thankful for her "two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day."
