Ariel Winter is best known for making us laugh on Modern Family.

But the actress has been in the news of late for a couple serious reasons:

First, the ugly battle against her allegedly abusive mom, which has caused Winter to live with her sister.

Second, her recent breast reduction surgery.

The 17-year old revealed to Glamour magazine this month that she went from a 32F bra size to a 34D because she couldn’t find bathing suits that fit.

She added that her enormous breasts made her feel unhappy and self-conscious.

"I [had] to be completely covered up" when out with friends, Winter explained, "otherwise I'll look a certain way that I'm not intending to look."

Winter also said her boobs were causing extreme back pain.

Following the plastic surgery confirmation, Winter took to Instagram to offer up a "HUGE thanks to the people who support me, love me, and take care of me in every way possible."

She went on to single out her sister, nieces, her dad, her best friends, her boyfriend and many others.

Winter concluded with a message to her fans, writing:

"You guys have all been so supportive and I couldn't thank y'all more. You are all amazing human beings and I'm honored to have you."
