In Reply to: Down syndrome and cosmetic surgery? posted by Jess Waldman on February 25, 2000 at 10:15:09:

: What do you think about facial plastic surgery for chilren with down syndrome.
: I am a college student at clarion university and I am writing an essay on the pros and cons of cosmetic surgery for
: children with down syndrome. I would like to know what others think about this surgery, whether the parents have the
: right to have a major unnecessary surgery for children who have no idea what is about to happen.
: Can parents have that option? Thanks

My daughter is 12 and is a beautiful child. I would never want to alter her looks. You would be telling your child that you do not accept them as they are. She has wonderful self esteem, I wish I had that as a child. She is high functioning and I like that people can look at her and see that she has Down Syndrome and realize how wonderful children can do when allowed to.
