A 6-year-old boy in Utah who was being bullied by other children for years because of his “elf ears” recently underwent “life changing” plastic surgery, an article by ABC 15 reported on Oct. 4.
Reports said Gage Berger had ears that were noticeably protruding. The boy reportedly refused to go to school and his outgoing personality had changed as other kids call him “elf ears” before undergoing ear pinning surgery.
Gage’s parents wanted to stop the bullying experienced by their son and began researching for a cosmetic surgery procedure to repair his ears. The couple got connected with the Mobley Foundation for Charitable Surgery, which provides free cosmetic surgery for school-age children who are being bullied and whose parents cannot afford the procedure. After his ears were unwrapped following the procedure, Gage was all smiles. According to his parents, he is “back to his old self again”.
Whether it involves the ears or otherwise, undergoing reconstructive surgery has many benefits and can help improve your self-confidence. Find out how the Bergman Plastic Surgery team in Des Moines can help you achieve the look you want by calling 515-222-1111 today.
