Model Robyn Lawley won’t get plastic surgery to erase her ‘Harry Potter scar’

Two months after she fell due to a lupus-induced seizure, model Robyn Lawley is embracing her facial injury, calling it her “Harry Potter scar.”

As I’m getting ready to return to work, feeling strong and near myself again, I want to be completely honest with you, in this day and age where we seemingly share all, I needed some time, healing physically and emotionally. I do however want the truth known. Nearly 2 months ago I had an accident. There’s a reason I was public about my lupus and aps diagnosis from the start, a lifelong incurable (for now) condition I didn’t know what I or still am in for. I unfortunately had a seizure on my staircase, I fell from over 7ft and landed on my face. I suppose it’s ironic that I’m a model, however I’m grateful I didn’t break my neck. I’ve managed to come full circle with that gratefulness, and luck. I could of had it holding my daughter for example, or I could be in a wheelchair, or not breathing at all. With fashion week coming soon I wanted to acknowledge my new lighting bolt scar on my forehead (aka offical wizard now ?‍♀️) lip and chin. As the scars fade, apart of me wants nothing to do with them and a part of me wants to embrace them. They make us who we are. Plus wearing daily makeup to cover my face is something I do not do. Life isn’t all rainbows. I’ve found strength the past few months following people who are brave to share their physical and emotional ongoing battles. Thank you @elly.mayday (battling ovarian cancer) thank you @chelseabonner (battling fibromyalgia) thank you @_indianrosee & @selenagomez (fellow lupus warriors) thank you. To anyone that’s going through something I’m sorry for the pain you have to endure. You are always welcome to DM questions about SLE (lupus) or APS. Thank you to the hospital staff and doctors who were fast to treat me. Thank you to my love of my life saving me. Sending out love and positive vibes. You can always follow @lupusorg or @lupusla to help support lupus research. This photo is from the hospital a couple of months ago and one from a week ago. ?? Peace Robyn

In a sit-down interview on “Megyn Kelly Today,” the 29-year-old Australian model opened up about the ordeal and her healing process.

“Today I think people don’t realize how much, work-wise, they get done, models and celebrities,” she explained. “Laser can actually get rid of this completely but I have no desire.”

Lawley, who in 2015 became the first plus-size model to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, continued: “I feel like scars say a story and tell who we are. I’ve always embraced my stretch marks and marks on my stomach and hips and body and I feel like, why should I have to get rid of them? Who is it going to appease? I actually like it.”
