7 year old gets plastic surgery to avoid bullying

The headline:  Mom approves 7-year-old for plastic surgery to pin back ears to avoid schoolyard bullying

The link:  http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle/2011/04/14/2011-04-14_mom_approves_7yearold_for_plastic_surgery_to_pin_back_ears_to_avoid_schoolyard_b.html

The summary:  A 7 year old girl got plastic surgery to pin back her ears when her mother said that she was the victim of continued bullying.

The reaction:  My first reaction was what probably most of you are thinking – are you kidding me?  But once I read the story I started having second thoughts.  Plastic surgery on the ears is apparently not quite as “invasive” as surgery on the nose or chin because a child’s ears become near adult size at a young age (as opposed to facial features which continue growing and shaping).  I’m still not sure I’m in favor of a 7 year old receiving this kind of surgery though.

What do you guys think?  Should a 7 year old be able to get plastic surgery?
