Breast reduction surgery is more common than you think

Modern Family star Ariel Winter recently opened up to Glamour magazine about her decision to get breast reduction surgery at just 17 years of age.

While some may think she’s too young for the surgery, it’s become increasingly common among women. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Surgery, breast reduction surgery has increased 157% in the U.S. in the past 15 years. Some studies suggest an uptick among teens because many of them are hitting puberty earlier.

Nightline on Fusion followed another young woman struggling with the same issues, preparing for a life-changing surgery.
