One Mom's Decision for Surgery
Wed, 04-24-2013 - 3:55pm

I just read this article from Huffington Post, the mom talks about her decision in having plastic surgery to remove her toddler's hemangioma, and dealing with the doubts about having it done: 

I made an appointment with a plastic surgeon my pediatrician begrudgingly referred me to. Chloe and I sat in the waiting room surrounded by pamphlets for rhinoplasty and chin implants. It felt blasphemous. Shouldn't I be teaching my kid that you can't judge a book by its cover? Plus, I'd kill her if she ever got a boob job.

In the end, she made the right choice for her daughter after getting the facts from an expert.  What are your thoughts on her story?
