Ariel Winter Deserves a Round of Applause for Opening Up About Her Breast Reduction (PHOTO)

Ariel Winter breast reductionBeing in the public eye has to be challenging for any celebrity -- but even more so for a teen who's a bit self-conscious about her body. Seventeen-year-old actress Ariel Winter is opening up about her recent breast reduction surgery and how it's improved her self-esteem. 


In June, the Modern Family star underwent surgery that took her from a 32F to a still-ample 34D. The teen shared how her sudden growth spurt was both physically and emotionally taxing. 

It really did happen overnight. I was 15 years old with (size) F (breasts). It’s like, 'how do you navigate that?'

In addition to experiencing physical discomfort, Winter said she was repeatedly cyberbullied for her clothing selections. But due to her figure, she didn't have many age-appropriate options. Ultimately, she admitted, the nasty comments were taking a toll.

I definitely seemed confident; I’m an actress, that’s what we do. But on the inside, I wasn’t feeling so happy.

We applaud her for making a change that makes her feel more comfortable and boosts her self-esteem. Seriously, look at how amazing she looks! She's glowing!

Still, Winter knows the haters will be back to bash this choice as well.

I got it for myself. I can’t even really put it into words about how amazing it feels to really feel right.

It's got to be tough to develop so quickly and to such an extreme. We're sure Winter will serve as an inspiration for young women struggling with how to handle their bodies' undergoing rapid changes that ultimately leave them feeling unhappy with themselves. We wish Winter lots of fun as she puts together her new wardrobe!
