13 Year Old Has Nose Job Because of Facebook Bullying

Last week ABC News covered the story of 13-year-old Nicolette Taylor and her rhinoplasty.  Apparently she was not only bullied in school, but the hardest part was bullying on Facebook.  

"This one kid was like 'Hey, Big Nose! Hey, whatcha doing Big Nose?" Nicolette says.

Her parents are totally supportive, with her mother saying "If that's the one thing that makes her so insecure, I don't have a problem with [her having a nose job]."

I could recap everything, but you've got to watch this video to get the full story.  It's worth the watch, and then let us know your opinion!

What do you think about purely cosmetic surgery at 13?  Are parents preventing their kids from learning how to deal with bullying, or are they providing an appropriate solution to a common childhood problem?
