Ariel Winter Opens Up About Her Breast Reduction Surgery - Get The Real Story Straight From Her!

Does Ariel Winter look different to you? She should…

The 17-year-old Modern Family actress opted to have breast reduction surgery recently and is opening up about it with Glamour.com. Check out what she had to share:

On when she decided to have the surgery: “I went to a swimsuit store with my cousin a few months ago and couldn’t find a bathing suit that fit me. I really felt bad about myself. I didn’t feel happy. I just kept saying, ‘What am I going to wear? There’s nothing for me to wear at the beach, at the pool.’ I can’t go to a party with my friends and wear the same thing as them. I have to be completely covered up; otherwise I’ll look a certain way that I’m not intending to look.”

On her confidence pre-surgery on the red carpet: “Definitely not. We live in a day and age where everything you do is ridiculed. The Internet bullies are awful. I could post a photo where I feel good, and 500 people will comment about how fat I am and that I am disgusting. On [red carpets] I just said to myself, ‘You have to do your best to look confident and stand up tall, and make yourself look as good as you can in these photos,’ because everyone is going to see them. I definitely seemed confident; I’m an actress, that’s what we do. But on the inside, I wasn’t feeling so happy.”

On getting advice from her Modern Family cast about the surgery: “I told [only] Julie Bowen because I had talked to her before about my desire to have the surgery. She was really supportive and understanding. I just saw Sofia [Vergara] the other day, and she was like, ‘Oh my God! I love them! They’re great!’ I was like, ‘This is hilarious.’ It’s funny—it’s like the guys don’t want to say anything, so they don’t and they just are [thinking], There’s a change. Which is good, I mean [laughs], but it’s funny now for them to notice and see the reactions. Everyone is really happy for me and has been super supportive. They understand I’ve been struggling with this for so many years.”

On sharing her story: “I didn’t want to not tell anybody and then have another million stories [say], ‘What happened to Ariel? She looks so different.’ And I also think there’s some good that can come from [telling] my story. It’s something that I did to better my life and better my health, and I think that can benefit a lot of young girls. I have felt happier with myself than I ever have. I am living a dream that a lot of girls my age would love to be living, and I’m aware of that. I’m really grateful that I’m able to do that and have a voice that I’m able to speak to teenagers. I don’t want to do anything to mess that up.”
