Ariel Winter is not ashamed that she got a breast reduction.
The 18-year-old “Modern Family” star didn’t cover up the scars from her surgery when she was on the red carpet for the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday.
After the media called it a “wardrobe malfunction,” Winter went on Twitter to clear things up.
“Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars!” she tweeted. “They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all.” (RELATED: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Defends Her Curves: ‘I Love My Body’)

The 18-year-old “Modern Family” star underwent surgery in June because she was uncomfortable with the reaction her assets were getting.
“I mainly did it for myself,” the 18-year-old said during an interview with “Entertainment Tonight.”
“Yes, I had many comments, and it bothered me that that was kind of what I was known for, and that was kind of what people were commenting on my photos.” (PHOTOS: ‘Modern Family’ Star Feels ‘Amazing’ After Breast Reduction)
