Ariel Winter has been fighting back against accusations that she’s had “extensive” plastic surgery. In fact, the 23-year-old Modern Family star denies having any facial surgery at all.
But that hasn’t stopped her fans—especially on Instagram—from asking about her changing looks whenever she posts.
On one photo (that has since been deleted), a follower commented: “How many surgeries have you had on your body and face now? Two breast reductions, that’s obvious, cheek bone and chin shaving and lip fillers. Pretty obvious, she looks so different #Truth.”
Ariel fired back: “I wasn't going to reply but I HAVE to ask… what the f— is cheek bone and chin shaving???? You’re also wrong about all of it by the way 🙂 one breast reduction and I lost weight but you do you boo.”
Clearly, it’s a sore subject. We know that Ariel has no problem with openly discussing the breast reduction surgery she underwent in 2015, at age 17. But her facial features are seemingly off-limits—and I’m not sure I buy that they’ve changed solely on account of “weight loss.”
If you feel the same way, join me in taking a look at Ariel’s beauty transformation from 2008 until now.

Alright, our first pic is of a 10-year-old Ariel on the red carpet. (Did you know she’s been working since the age of four?) She was such a cute kid! This was pre-braces, so her teeth have a few gaps, and her hair was a natural sun-kissed brown instead of the black shade she later became known for. Also notice her nose and lips, and how she was already tweezing her brows into a skinnier shape.
