Some parents want to help their young children by getting cosmetic surgery on help them gain acceptance from others and not get bullied. Examples are ears pinned, nose reduced, etc.

I agree that the world should accept them but reality dictates some behaviors. I am against changing a child's looks just for cosmetic reasons. They should wait ill they are adults and decided for themselves.
Yes a cleft palate or some other major deformity is not cosmetic, it's a necessary surgery.There's a growing trend for kids to get cosmetic surgery to fit in and not be bullied. It seems society supports surgery more than stopping bullies...
I don't believe cleft palate is not a "necessary surgery". One can live their entire life without getting it and function quite normally. The surgery is for cosmetic reasons. I agree with you lots of teens want to be admired or look like "stars".
I would hope that a responsible plastic surgeon would talk parents out of a cosmetic procedure just to please others,
