Ariel Winter is an American actress best known for her role as Alex Dunphy in the popular sitcom Modern Family.
In 2015, at the age of 17, she underwent breast reduction surgery to reduce the size of her breasts from a 32F to a 34D.
Winter has been open about her decision to have the surgery, stating that she had been struggling with back pain, neck pain, and other physical discomforts due to the size of her breasts.

“Being a 5-foot tall girl and having extremely large breasts is really ostracizing and excruciatingly painful,” Winter told People. “But I didn’t really express how I felt about that.”
“I’d just be wearing something anyone else could wear, but I’d read comments saying, ‘She dresses inappropriately,'” she added.
Winter also faced significant unwanted attention and scrutiny about her appearance, making her uncomfortable and insecure.
In an interview with Glamour magazine, the young star explained that she had been considering the surgery for several years and that it was a difficult decision to make.

She stated that she ultimately decided to go through with the procedure to improve her quality of life and feel more comfortable in her own skin.
“It made me feel really uncomfortable because as women in the industry, we are totally over sexualized and treated like objects,” she said.
Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet always 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.'”
