It is very unfortunate but there is an alarming rate of young teens turning toward cosmetic plastic surgery in order to shed off the wrath of schoolyard bullies. We were all young once and kids can be cruel but is it going too far? 6th graders now want to turn to plastic surgery in order to fight off bullies that might be making fun of their facial or body features on a daily basis. We have all seen the stories make news headlines over the last few years regarding just how far some bullied teens might go to make things stop. Plastic surgery is amazing way for individuals to make things better for themselves but not in this type of situation. Children should not have to worry about having a rhinoplasty in order to make friends in school or at least make it from one class to the next without being ridiculed in the hallways.
ABC News recently did a story covering this new trend.
