When Winter reached fifteen, she had growth spur overnight. Once flat chested suddenly had breast development. The growth of breasts is normal in female teenagers during puberty, but thanks to her genes, her breast grew exceptionally, and by the age of fifteen, she was wearing a F sized bra.

By age fifteen, she was already a household name, all thanks to her multiple Emmy award-winning sitcom, "Modern Family." As a result, the changes on her body were not only were noticed by the whole world, but everyone started having their opinion about that as well.

After a while, the gossips regarding fake boobs subsided and transitioned into over-sexualization. Headlines such as "Ariel Winter's Crazy Cleavage!'" Or "Ariel Winter Shows Huge Boobs at an Event!' became the norm. It was saddening for a talented actress to see every article about her cleavage rather than the work she was doing.
The actress oversized breasts were not only bringing public shaming to her, but it was also adversely affecting her health, both physical and mental. Because of the weight of the breasts, she started having a lot of back problems. She could not stand up straight for an extended period, her neck started hurting, and her spine was adversely affected.
In addition to battling physical pain, the naturally brunette(who now rocks red hair) was also forced to fight mental demons. She increasingly becoming frustrated with not be able to dress the way she liked and feel the way she wanted. She had to search for hours for perfect bras. In addition to that, she had to spend hours with the stylist of the show so that she could look age-appropriate in the show. Her looks on-screen was slowly getting limited to oversized sweaters and flannels.
Not only that, but Winter's red-carpets looks were also limited to wearing formfitting dresses as they were the only designs that would flatter her body type. However, these dresses were not age-appropriate and always made her look mature., which was always pointed put by the fashion police.

Though the actress was facing many mental and physical anguish because of breast size, she tried her best to deal with it. However, one particular event really tested her patience and became a turning point in her decision to do breast reduction surgery.
One day she went to the store with her cousin to buy a bathing suit that would fit her shape. After trying many, she could not find any. The thought that she is not going to find anything to wear to the pool kept haunting her. At that point, she realizes she did not want to live her life like this, always worrying about finding the clothes that fit her and thus she decided to change the way she looks.
Ariel decided to go for breast reduction surgery, and the whole family including her sister Shanelle Workman was supportive of her decision. After all, surgery to reduce breasts was nothing new in the family. On her maternal side, most women had more massive breasts, so most of her cousins had experience doing the surgery.

Winter after surgery opened about her medical procedure so that no false stories could be made about changes in her breast size. Furthermore, she wanted people to understand that she did the surgery to better her life and health and not just for cosmetic purposes. Also, she thought that sharing her story of breast reduction will inspire young girls to take a decision that will better their health and boy it did.

It is normal to have changed facial features with age. But a drastic change always raises a question. People have witnessed Ariel grow from a child to a beautiful woman. In the process, there were many times when some of the changes did not feel organic. However, nothing raised a question like her facial changes in 2019.

Seeing the changes on Winter one Instagram user could not help but comment on one of the Instagram post of the actress. The user wrote,"How many surgeries have you had on your body and face now? Two breast reductions, that's obvious, cheek bone and chin shaving and lip fillers. Pretty obvious, she looks so different #Truth."
Upon reading that the SAG award winning actress fired back; "I wasn't going to reply, but I HAVE to ask… what the f— is cheek bone and chin shaving????You're also wrong about all of it by the way. One breast reduction and I lost weight but you do you boo."
There is no doubt weight loss may be the cause of losing some fat from the cheeks, but it is hard to believe that all changes are a result of weight loss. Many suspects that she either had injected Botox in her masseter muscles, which has caused a dramatically slimming effect in the jawline or she has removed excess fat from jawline by using submental liposuction.
