A six-year-old boy in Utah recently had plastic surgery after being bullied for having 'elf ears'

First grader Gage Berger had the procedure done after receiving ridicule from his classmates for the way his ears stuck out. According to DailyMail.com, the two hour procedure was done by Salt Lake City facial plastic surgeon Dr Steven Mobley.

His parents say they were in support of the surgery so that he wouldn't face future mental issues from all the bullying he was receiving. The procedure involved sewing the inner ear into the right shape and pinning it back.

The family sat down with Inside Edition for an interview about the surgery. That can be seen below. Do you think a six year old is old enough to have this sort of corrective surgery? Let us know in the comments below.
