Too Much of a Good Thing? Ariel Winter Shrinks Her Breasts with Surgery

How much is too much? That’s a good question. Ariel Winter felt 32F was too much. As a result, she underwent breast reduction surgery last month and shrunk her breasts down. Now, they’re only a 34D. That gust of wind you felt was America men sighing at once. Good for Winter because it sounds like she wasn’t having much fun carrying her melons around. She looked like this before the surgery:

Winter gave an exclusive interview with Glamour magazine and detailed how emotionally scarring, and physically demanding, 32F breasts are. Or were.

But even though from the outside it looked like the attention didn’t bother her, there was an emotional and physical battle that she struggled with deeply inside. At 5’1, the petite star was dealing with more than an awkward growth spurt. “It really did happen overnight,” Winter says of her breast development. “I remember being in my sister’s wedding and being so flat and thinking, ‘I just wish I would grow boobs!’ and then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop.”

You know what else is growing? He he. Umm…my admiration for her tough choice. Removing a piece of your body isn’t easy.

Noting that standing up straight for hours at a time proved difficult, Winter often found herself hunched over on set. “It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain,” admits the young star.

It also affected her ability to land parts, which  is not something that comes to mind. It makes sense after you hear what she says.

It did play a part in that I couldn’t play younger roles anymore. Once I developed, I couldn’t really play 12 or 13 or 14 anymore. They’d want to send me out for 18 or 19, but the problem with 18 or 19 is that I’m not 18 yet. So why would they hire me when they could hire someone that was 18 or 19? That was a problem I ran into. [Having large breasts] automatically makes someone look older and more mature. So it definitely was a problem.

Also, producers of Modern Family had to find ways to hide Winter’s assets:

They had to hide it on Modern Family a lot. Big sweaters, [or] strapping me down—which is fine—I understand that it doesn’t fit the character they have in mind. I understand that. But it was difficult to do that every day.

With all these hassles in mind, Winter decided to go forth with the surgery. On June 4th, she only let a few people know what she was getting ready to do, i.e. disappoint America. She headed to the operating room and in the end, hellooo 34D.

The result for Winter was noticeable right away. Throughout the course of our exclusive sit-down interview, she mentions frequently that she “feels like a new person.”

Funny, her boyfriend also said she “feels like a new person.” And here’s the big reveal:

Not bad. She looks great and her boyfriend will eventually get used to hiding his disappointment also. If you miss the old Ariel, check out the second gallery.

Next, she needs to shrink her ass with exercise. Might be too much work for her though.
