Bigger is not always better when it comes to breast size. Believe or not, for some women it can almost be a curse. Take Hollywood actress Ariel Winter, for example.
Last year, the “Modern Family” star underwent breast reduction at just 17-years-old. Originally a 32F, the operation took her down to a 34D, and she couldn’t be happier. In fact, she says she now feels like a “new person,” and the weight of her breasts no longer cause her pain.
“It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain,” she said. “My neck was hurting so bad, and I actually had some problems with my spine. I had been discussing my chest with doctors for many years, but when I finally said, ‘I’m thinking of doing this,’ he said, ‘Your back is going to thank you so much.'”
Her unusually large bust size also made her the target of “social media trolls” and cyberbullies. It was just another reason that motivated her to get the surgery. She was sick of her chest becoming the center of attention and not her talent.
“I definitely seemed confident; I’m an actress, that’s what we do. But on the inside, I wasn’t feeling so happy,” she admitted.
Breast reduction surgery offered an effective solution for the young actress to cope with her problems. It removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. In a nutshell, the end results lead to breasts that are smaller, firmer and more proportional to the rest of the body.
