Parents Talk: Would You Let Your Child Get Plastic Surgery to Avoid Bullying?
In this week's Parents Talk, we ask parents how they feel about plastic surgery as a solution to bullying.
Ear-pinning, a nose job, chin-altering. Sounds like a plastic surgeon's menu of services, right?
Actually, it is. It's also the latest solution to bullying.
The Little Baby Face Foundation, a charitable organization providing plastic surgery to children born with facial deformities, has recently stepped up to help children alter their appearance to stave off bullies.
Nadia Ilse, 14, had her ears pinned, her nose done and her chin shaved to appear less angular. The teen, who was reportedly bullied by classmates in her Georgia hometown, said she now feels more beautiful and confident as a result of the surgery.
If your child was being bullied because of his or her appearance, would you allow them to get plastic surgery? What if the surgery was paid for by someone else? Tell us in the comments.
