More and more young children are resulting to the surgical knife to improve their looks and a visit to their neighborhood plastic surgeon is starting to be more like a routine visit to their Orthodontist.
Meet Nadia Ilse who was constantly bullied for her looks at school. She was tormented by her classmates since the age of 7.
“I felt horrible. I felt like I was like dirt,” she said, in an interview with “Good Morning America.” “They said that I have the biggest ears that they’ve ever seen. They called me ‘Dumbo,’ ‘elephant ears.’
I kind of got into this shell and I actually skipped school a lot,” she said. “I made excuses. I would say my stomach hurt, say that I was sick even though I wasn’t.”
You can watch more of Nadia's journey on the video bellow.
I kind of feel torn in judging this. First because I am a parent and I am not sure about teaching my kid to run to the plastic surgery office will be the answer to her insecurities, but on the other hand, I myself was constantly teased as a child. Not only by other kids, but by family members who didn't find my looks to fit their standard of beauty in our culture,and trust me it did set the tone for how my life would turn out to be; and let me tell you it has been quite colorful .

Women are going to extensive lengths to achieve luscious eyelashes, from trying every new mascara that hits the market to gluing on fake lashes every day , to even paying for services that promise to curl, tint, and enhance lashes.
Having long and thick eyelashes have become a permanent fixture in the beauty world. Young girls are spending their weekly allowances on the latest miracle mascara that hits the shelves, and there are a bazillion you tube videos showing how to get those spider lashes you have been obsessing with.
Naturally with a new obsession comes a new addiction and eyelashes are no exception. Allow me to introduce you to Eyeagra Latissma (eye-AG-ra la-TEES-ee-muh).
Eyeagra Latissma is the condition of having a constant and obsessive urge to have thicker and longer lashes. This is according to plasticality’s own definition, since I have not found a reputable medical source where this term came from.
So, if you or someone you know suffers from Eyeagra Latissma, Seek professional help. Counselors and mental health professionals have the right tools to help you find what your reasons are for turning to any addiction, even if is turning your eyes into venus fly traps. You can stop trying no , there was only one Tammy Faye Baker and nobody will ever replace her!!!

Sometimes, just a slight modification makes a tremendous difference to one's appearance. It can be shocking to see the before and after photos." Read the rest of the article here.
