Bullying among children and teens has received increased attention during the past decade, and schools are making an effort to curtail the conflicts, but some children and parents are taking drastic measures to avoid unwanted attention. Fourteen-year-old Nadia Ilse had surgery on her nose, chin and ears after being teased by her peers. Ilse is pleased with the physical results, but will the self-esteem boost last?
Nadia Ilse is looking forward to the new school year, when she will no longer be called "Dumbo" by her peers for her "elephant ears."
To ward off school bullies who began taunting her in the first grade for her ears, Nadia begged her mother at the age of 10 for an otoplasty an operation to pin her ears back.
The teen, now 14, was recently granted her wish by the Little Baby Face Foundation, a charity that provides free corrective surgery to children born with facial deformities.
