Now that she's gotten it all out in the open, the Modern Family star is getting some serious support from her sister on the show, Sarah Hyland.
The 24-year-old is commending the actress' decision to go under the knife to reduce her size, saying:
"It's something we've been talking about for a long time. I'm super proud of her. I'm super happy for her."
The 17-year-old gave a whole bunch of legitimate reasons for having the procedure, including over-sexualization and some pretty bad back problems.
Sarah says she has no idea what that must have been like for her co-star, since they have similar statures:
"She's a tiny girl. We're practically the same size. I'm about a half of an inch or an inch taller than her, and I can't imagine carrying that weight."
But, the brunette beauty says she's so glad that Ariel finally seems comfortable with herself and her body:
"She's happy and most of all, she is healthy. She's glowing. As long as she's healthy and happy, that's all that matters to me. She's always been a very happy little girl – oh, God, I will still see her as an 11-year-old in my eyes. She's really like my little sister."
Awwww! We're so glad the love and support between these two ladies exists just as much off the set as it does on! We're really happy that Ariel seems to be enjoying herself!

Ariel Winter is absolutely glowing!
On Saturday, Ariel made her first public appearance following her breast reduction at Disney's D23 expo. The Modern Family star showed up to attend a children's reading session of Sofia the First, a book based of the Disney Junior TV series (the actress is the voice of Sofia). How adorable!
The actress, who wore a simple green dress to the appearance, looked absolutely stunning and HAPPY as she posed for pictures on the red carpet. Considering Ariel revealed that her 34F sized boobs were causing her tons of back pain and other issues, we're not surprised that the 17-year-old was all smiles!
We're so proud of this young lady for speaking out about this!
It can definitely help others who are struggling with similar issues!
The actress was often made uncomfortable by being overly sexualized because of her breasts, when their size was just a natural part of her body:
Ariel Winter is on a roll!!
On Monday night, The Modern Family star revealed she has big plans for the future and in a shocking twist it DOESN'T involve acting.
The actress, who just got emancipated from her estranged mother earlier this month, revealed that she plans to one day attend law school.
Yay for having goals, girl!!
The 17-year-old explained:
"I toured around schools in California and I'm going to take a tour of East Coast schools."
Wow, Ariel sounds serious about her education!! Who knows, maybe there are some Ivy League schools on Winter's list!!
Listen to A.W. dish on her big goal (below)!!!
It's been a long time coming and it's finally done.
After three years of being estranged from her reportedly abusive mother Chrystal Workman, Ariel Winter is officially emancipated.
The overjoyed 17-year-old revealed the great news to the world on her Twitter early Friday afternoon and thanked a couple of people in the process.
"I am now officially emancipated!!! I'm really lucky I have an amazing support system and lovely people in my life who have given me the support and guidance to have been given this wonderful opportunity. Most importantly I want to thank @shanelle_gray and my father for their special support regarding this matter, I really couldn't have done it without them. Thank you to all of my family, friends, and fans who have supported me through all of my endeavors in life, and have encouraged me. Thank you for making my life so special! I can't wait to embark on my new adventures. ❤️ xo"
Emancipating yourself from your family or even just a parental figure is emotionally exhausting.
We're so glad Ariel was able to surround herself with supportive people and loved ones during this time.

See, Ariel Winter is just like every other 17-year-old girl!
On Tuesday, the Modern Family star shared a few precious pre-prom snaps with her followers on Instagram.
In the ADORABLE pics, Winter poses with her boyfriend, Laurent Claude Gaudette, and her dad, Glenn Workman.
Considering the actress has had some issues with her family in the past, we're glad they were able to work out their differences in time for prom!!
Check out the awwz (below)!
We need sunglasses, because these two are white hot!
The Pitch Perfect actress looked lovely in a knee-length frock, featuring two diamond cutouts and a super cute rounded hem. She completed the ensem with a geometric clutch, a casual side-braid, and white sandals.
But OUCH — did anyone else notice her rogue pinky toe slipping out from the shoe?!
Ariel, on the other hand, had no shoe malfunctions, wearing some cute pumps! She paired them with a tight white cocktail dress, golden clutch, and some silver blue hair extensions! Perhaps she's wearing Kylie Hair Kouture?! LOLz!
Anyway, we love both looks!
