15-Year-Old Tried to Break Own Nose Before Plastic Surgery

Filed under: In The News, Teen Culture



Because of a large bump on her nose, high school senior Erica Morgo was bullied and called Pinocchio, she tells Good Morning America. The taunting became so unbearable that she attempted to break her own nose by banging her face against a door.

Her mother, Dana Manzella, decided to put an end to the problem by allowing her daughter to undergo plastic surgery. She believes the surgery has improved her daughter's self-esteem, according to GMA.

Although Erica was only 15 when she had the surgery, she certainly is not alone.

"Nearly 90,000 teenagers had cosmetic surgery in 2007, and doctors say the numbers are growing," GMA reports.
