Teenager seeks rhinoplasty to avoid bullying

Plastic Surgery SmartBrief | May 19, 2015

A Raleigh, N.C., area teenager became withdrawn and considered suicide after years of bullying and taunting about the size and shape of her nose. After watching online videos and reading about rhinoplasty, the girl and her parents consulted facial plastic surgeon Adam Stein, who consented to perform the procedure after seeing the teen's emotional distress. The patient is happy with the results, posts photos of herself on social media and posted her own online video about the experience in an effort to support other victims of bullying.
