Modern Family star Ariel Winter reveals that she has undergone breast reduction surgery and says, “It’s amazing to finally feel right!”
The 17-year-old actress explains that she made the decision to get the surgery after years of physical pain and emotional stress from criticism about her voluptuous figure.
In an interview with Glamour, Ariel spoke up about the constant talk about her busty body and admits: “It made me feel really uncomfortable, because as women in the industry, we are totally over sexualized and treated like objects. Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet had to do with ‘Ariel Winter’s Crazy Cleavage!’ or ‘Ariel Winter Shows Huge Boobs at an Event!’ That’s all people would recognize me by— not, ‘Oh, she does great work on Modern Family.’ ”
The turning point for the Ariel was shopping with her cousin for swimsuits and finding the task impossible. She had already been thinking about the surgery and decided to have the procedure on June 4 to reduce Winter’s bust size from 32F to 34D.
She “feels like a new person,” she states. “This is how I was supposed to be.”
