Teenagers are taking an empowering step to overcome the problem of bullying. Some kids born with facial deformities are turning to plastic surgery to end bullying by eliminating some of the physical problems that have made them the targets of bullies.


While Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda realizes plastic surgery may be seen as an extreme measure to consider for a person so young, he believes it can have a very positive effect.


“When you have the choice of a child being bullied and the potential psychological effects  it will have on them as compared to having a surgical procedure that can make them look better, but more importantly, lift their self esteem, it seems like an easy decision,” Wigoda states.
