Modern Family's Ariel Winter
Proudly Shows Off Her Breast Reduction Scars
After undergoing breast reduction surgery, Ariel Winter stepped out at the SAG Awards with her breast reduction scars on show - and we say 'you go girl!'. The 18 year old Modern Family star tweeted "Guys there is a reason I didn't make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I'm not ashamed of them at all,".
Ariel decreased her bust from a 32F to 34D, an Australian size 10F to 12D, after her natural assets were taking a toll on her body and confidence. "I think it will be the only [cosmetic surgery] I'll have done, but I'm extremely happy with the decision I made,” Winter told PEOPLE about her surgery. "It's important to talk about it because there are young girls suffering like I did, but there shouldn't be a stigma about it."
She's decided to be open with her decisions, saying "When I made the decision to get the surgery, I had some people that I talked to that were like, 'are you going to tell anyone or are you going to keep it a secret?'. I kind of was confused by that question because to me it was not something to hide. I don't think anyone should have to hide anything in general for fear of being scrutinized."
"Being a 5-ft.-tall girl and having extremely large breasts is really ostracizing and excruciatingly painful."
Since her surgery, Winter has clearly been more comfortable in her skin - and we think she looks amazing!
