Ariel Winter is thrilled with her recent decision to go under the knife. The Modern Family star thanked a laundry list of people following her breast reduction surgery in an Instagram post on Wednesday, Aug. 12.

"I am extremely humbled," Winter, 17, captioned a photo of her Glamour magazine spread. "To my fans, 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. HUGE thanks go to the people who support me, love me, and take care of me in every way possible."

Winter revealed on Wednesday that she decided to go from a 32F to a 34D because her breast size was too much to handle. She wasn't happy, she said, and was even bullied online for her appearance. On Instagram, Winter was more positive than ever when she went on to thank her sister, Shanelle Gray, boyfriend Laurent Claude Gaudette, and more for supporting her through this journey.

"I love you all more than anything. I don't know what I'd do without you guys." (Gray was granted permanent guardianship of Winter in May 2014 after the actress alleged that her mother, Chrisoula Workman, had been physically and emotionally abusive.)

The ABC star made sure to not leave anyone out, giving a shout-out to her "awesome team," and ended her note with a positive message to her fans. 

"Lastly, never be afraid to speak your mind," she wrote. "Always make decisions because YOU want to, and always do what makes YOU happy. Xx."
