Real Housewives of New York star Leah McSweeney is keeping it real for her fans.
The 38-year-old reality star shared an unedited photo of herself on Monday, that displayed the scar from her recent breast augmentation surgery, from a revealing shoot for Paper Magazine.
‘I had wanted the non photoshopped boob photo to be published but accidentally the scar from my boob lift was edited out,’ McSweeney wrote to her 545k Instagram followers.
She added: ‘Here it is in all its glory for the sake of transparency. Sorry for clogging your feed today!’

The stunning picture sees McSweeney wearing gold overalls that expose her right breast, which is partially covered with a matching gold nipple tassel.
The gold-themed shoot sees the Bravo personality with her hair scraped up in a high ponytail with a chunky gold Dior necklace around her neck.
In December last year, McSweeney told fans she had undergone breast surgery, as well as having had a nose job in September.

Debut: In some of her first scenes on the show last year, Leah got topless when drunk in the Hamptons during a wild pool party (filmed before her most recent surgery)
‘As I lay here for days recovering from my Xmas boob lift and augmentation… all I can wonder is how the f the kardashians find the time to recover from all their work,’ she said cheekily on Instagram at the time.
She added: ‘The other thing is…I can’t wait to show off the new and improved girls.’
Talking about her nose job in September, she wrote: ‘People are DMing me like crazy inquiring why I have black eyes and asking if I got a nose job, asking if I got beat up.’
‘I am not trying to hide anything from anybody. I got a rhinoplasty and a septoplasty. I could not be happier.’
Leah had all of these surgeries performed by Dr. Daniel Maman, a New York City-based plastic surgeon.
Making a splash: Since joining RHONY last year, Leah has made quite the impression with her occasionally wild antics, and declaring herself ‘sex positive’ in her personal life
Since joining RHONY last year, Leah has made quite the impression with her occasionally wild antics, and declaring herself ‘sex positive’ in her personal life.
In March this year, McSweeney celebrated one year sober, having stopped drinking again just days before the showed aired last year.
Having battled substance abuse in the past, McSweeney had 10 years of sobriety under her belt before she started filming the Bravo show, though she has clarified that she started drinking ahead of filming.
Talking about the reaction to her sobriety, and her drunken antics when she first joined, she said: ‘I always knew there was a stigma around alcoholism and addiction but I didn’t realize just how terrible the stigma was, especially for women, until the show aired.’
