Changing Face Of Childhood of the Day: Nadia Ilse’s “elephant ears” long ago earned her the name “Dumbo” from classmates. By the time she was 10, she was pestering her mom for an otoplasty, an operation to pin her ears back:
The taunting hurt so much.
Of course, the foundation’s Dr. Thomas Romo recommended Nadia go all out, so in addition to having her ears pinned back, Nadia received a nose job and a newly symmetrical chin.
Next up for Nadia? Counseling, and working to regain the confidence she’d lost over the years.
Don’t miss the teen’s revealing post-surgery interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
So instead of dealing with or punishing the bullies in any way, the solution is to change the person who has been bullied? I see. That makes total sense. Yes, let’s reinforce the idea that something is wrong with you by ‘fixing’ it! And plastic surgery on a person who isn’t done growing is always an excellent idea.
At least she’ll get counseling.

- daisygirl94 said: I saw a news story of this, and I must admit she looks much more like herself than it originally appeared she would when they removed the bandages. I’m very glad, she was a beautiful young lady even before the surgery.
