 7 Year-old Undergoes Plastic Surgery to Escape Bullying

A 7-year-old girl from South Dakota underwent a ear pinning plastic surgery called otoplasty, to improve the looks of her ear, its position and size.

The girl's mother said that her daughter was at the receiving end of jokes and bullying on account of her ears. The family decided to go for the surgery as a way to prevent her from getting bullied.

The surgery which took about two-and-a-half hours was performed by Dr. Steven Pearlman, a New York City-based plastic surgeon.

The doctor said that the surgery was a 100% success.
