According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more and more KIDS and TEENS are getting cosmetic surgery . . . and experts suggest a lot of it is a response to bullying.

In other words . . . if other kids won't stop making fun of your kid's nose, you get him a nose job.  Or you get his ears pinned back, whatever.

In the past decade, cosmetic surgery for kids under 18 is up 30%.  There's no word on how much of that is directly related to bullying, but experts believe it's the significant driving force behind the increase. 

Extreme cases aside, is a nose job here and an ear pinning there any different than braces?  With few exceptions, braces are considered cosmetic.  Is pinning ears back no different?
