Plastic Surgery for Nose & eyes

My son is 4 months old and has ds. We are blessed because he does not have allot of problems. His nose is the biggest problem. He snores so bad and I have got to get up a couple of times a night to clean his nose. Has anyone had plastic surgery to correct bridge in nose of children with downs?

My son has very small eyes ( asain eyes) this is effecting his sight. Has anyone had any luck with eye surgery to release the ligaments in eyes?

Re: Plastic Surgery for Nose & eyes

no experience with this...

but i have opinions... he's only 4 mos old... wait it out a while... his face is going to change so much, and grow over the next year or two. By the time he's a toddler, you'll have a better idea of if his sight is really affected, and if the snoring hasn't corrected itself....
