Ariel Winter opened up about her decision to undergo breast reduction surgery back in August after battling severe back pain and relentless body shaming. Now the Modern Family actress is proud of her scars and is using her experience to inspire others. At the SAG Awards this past Saturday, she stunned in a sophisticated and skin-baring black dress and later took to Instagram to encourage others to embrace their bodies.
She also made a statement on Twitter defending her decision not to cover up the scars.
Guys there is a reason I didn't make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I'm not ashamed of them at all. :)— Ariel Winter (@arielwinter1) January 31, 2016
