Why Ariel Winter Decided a Breast Reduction was the Right Choice for Her

Speaking with Glamour Magazine, Ariel Winter, the teenage star of the TV hit, Modern Family, revealed that she recently underwent breast reduction surgery. Struggling with the emotional and physical burden of her size 32F breasts, at 17 years old, Ariel made the decision to reduce her breasts to a more modest 34D. Like Ariel, many women understand the perils of a too-ample chest—as she said, “I was 15 years old with size F breasts… its like, ‘How do you navigate that?’”.


Let Ariel’s experience be an inspiration for you. Here, we reflect on three reasons why she believes her breast reduction was a leap in the right direction:


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

 “What am I going to wear? There was nothing for me to wear”

As any women with a larger chest can relate, finding bras and properly fitting clothing was difficult. Unlike most women, Ariel also had the added pressure of being a Hollywood starlet, finding red carpet gowns proved to be a challenge.  Self-conscious of her chest, Ariel recalls feeling limited in her choices: “it was really hard. There was so little that I could wear that was age-appropriate. I’d have to wear the dress that was super tight and form fitted everywhere”. Ariel didn’t struggle only on the red carpet. A constant battle, Ariel noted that she couldn’t “go to a party with friends and wear the same thing as them”.


“It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain”

While emotionally difficult, the physical pain caused by large breasts can be excruciating: “It was so painful. I had a lot of back problems. I really couldn’t stand up straight for long periods of time… My neck was hurting so bad and I actually had some problems with my spine”.


“It’s something that I did to better my life and better my health”

Expressing her love for her now-reduced bosom, Ariel enthusiastically exclaimed, “the feeling of not having so much there was such a relief… I can’t even explain the feeling… so relieved and excited”. Concluding, “you feel like a new person, you feel like this is how I was supposed to be”.
