Ariel Winter made her first public appearance since opening up about her breast reduction surgery when she dropped by Disney’s D23 Expo on Aug. 15. And spoiler alert: she looked gorgeous!
Ariel Winter , 17, was all smiles Saturday, Aug. 15 when she stopped by Disney’s D23 Expo for her first public appearance since revealing her breast reduction surgery. The Modern Family star showed up to attend a reading session of Sofia the First, a book based on the Disney Junior TV series (she is the voice of Sofia) and looked positively stunning. Check out her gorgeous new look!
Ariel showed off her fabulous new figure in a bright green romper as she hit the stage joined by a real-life version of her TV character. The two also posed together on the red carpet, where the actress could be seen smiling from ear to ear. It definitely seems like she feels good about her recent breast reduction surgery.
Ariel’s decision to go public with her breast reduction has caught a lot of online attention as of late. In the candid interview with Glamour, the actress explained that she couldn’t ignore the constant attention her cleavage received in the media and online. As a result, the red carpet pro decided to reduce the size of her breasts from a 32F to a 34D. “Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet had to do with ‘Ariel Winter’s Crazy Cleavage!’ or ‘Ariel Winter Shows Huge Boobs at an Event!'” she explained to the magazine. “That’s all people would recognize me by—not, ‘Oh, she does great work on Modern Family.'”
Prior to the surgery, she said, she struggled to find clothes that fit and often experienced back and neck problems. “I’d have to wear the dress that was super tight and form-fitted everywhere because if I didn’t, it didn’t look good,” she shared. “Everyone would [say], ‘Why is she dressing so mature? That’s so inappropriate for her age!’ I understood what they were saying. It’s not like I wanted to pick out those inappropriate dresses, it’s just that I didn’t really have another choice, or I was going to get ridiculed.”
How terrible! We’re really feel for Ariel and everything she had to go through. However, on a brighter note, Ariel appears to be doing better than ever following her surgery, and admits that she’s never felt more confident. “I feel great. It was such a quick recovery for me. I was up and running within five days. The feeling of not having so much there was such a relief!” she explained. ” Once the surgery was completed, I can’t even explain the feeling.”
