Stunning Sophie "Mrs Hinch" Hinchcliffe opened up about her excess skin removal scars on her arms on Instagram.

The Instagram star shared pictures with her 3.6million followers and wrote: "This is me."

The 30-year-old had excess skin removal surgery in 2016 after losing weight after having a gastric band fitted.

She wrote: "In all honesty, I also like this dress because it also covers my arms.

"Lots of you already know about this because it's written in my first book but I had surgery on my arms once so I of course have been left with scarring but this dress makes me feel like my arms are covered."

Zooming in on her arm scar, she continued: "Maybe this is a strange picture but… THIS IS ME and I think it's so important for people to remember that everyone has their own story to tell, we are all special in our own way."

Sophie revealed all about her surgery in her book Hinch Yourself Happy and in an interview with the Daily Mail she said: "The surgery works for some people. But for me, if I had known the complications and risks, I wouldn't have done it."

After battling issues with self-confidence, Sophie piled on weight in her late teens.

"I'd just passed my driving test, so I was able to go out in the car and get takeaways at McDonald's Drive-Thrus.

"Before I knew it, I was eating for what felt like eating's sake."

Taking out a bank loan when she was 21, Sophie was able to pay for her gastric band procedure.

Once she'd lost a staggering 8 stone it left her with excess skin on her arms.

In 2016 the blonde beauty decided she needed to do something about it.

In her book she said: "I kept getting problems with excess skin. It was getting inflamed and blistering. It was painful.

"If I bought a size 10 or 12 top or jacket in a shop, it would fit me everywhere else but not the arms. I was smaller but I still couldn't buy clothes in the size I actually was."

After getting the skin removed, she developed an infection on her left arm, which caused both arms to 'blow up to three times their size'.

Sophie wrote: "They had to drain them urgently and blast the IV with antibiotics.

"I ended up staying in hospital for two weeks and I genuinely thought I was going to lose my left arm at one point."
