Why Ariel Winter opted for Breast Reduction at 17
While breast reduction surgery is a common procedure in San Francisco and the Bay Area, it can still cause a stir when the patient happens to be a 17-year-old TV star. Certainly breast augmentation is a bit more common in Hollywood, but for Modern Family star, Ariel Winter, the last thing she wanted was to increase her bust.
By the age of fifteen, Ms. Winter had developed to a 32F bra size. Aside from the extreme difficulty of finding clothing that fit, she struggled with unwanted attention and physical pain. She endured extra scrutiny on the red carpet for wearing revealing styles, but explained that form-fitted, tight dresses were all she could find to work with her curvy physique, despite wishing for something more in line with her age group.
After undergoing breast reduction surgery in June, Ms. Winter reports that she is happier than ever, and is eager to share her story in order to help others. Reasons for breast reduction surgery include:
- Breasts cause pain in the neck, back, or shoulders
- Feeling self-conscious
- Bra straps that dig into your shoulders
- Difficulty finding adequate support garments
- Physical activity is hindered
- Difficulty finding clothes that fit or are flattering
- Rashes and irritation under the breasts
- Poor posture
- Differently sized breasts
