    The answer will vary person to person, In my opinion you need to look at why you want to do it, if it's just to have a perfect child then its rediculous. I'm really on the fence with these topics as I understand not wanting a child to be teased or have bad self esteem but there are a lot of risks involved in any surgery,


    what feels right for you? talk to a few specialists and doctors and find out exact details and risk percentages.
    Then make a decision don't let anyone else make you feel bad for it

    I be doing it ASAP! The self esteem issues that could come with jut aren't worth the wait in my eyes.

    I have a friend who had a correction of similar done at 32 years just in time for her wedding she was so thrilled with the results she wished it had been done much much earlier

    With this in mind I would absolutely say yes

    Hmmmmm, I think I would get it done before she starts primary school.

    If it were my little one I would get it done. In this instance the word 'cosmetic' is about as useful as the word 'elective' (as in elective c-sec when there is reason for it). If it puts your dd on a level playing field with other kids, limits the chances of being teased/bullied then I feel its a positive and protective thing to do. Good luck with your decision.

    Personally I would get it done before she starts school as kids can be cruel and if it's done before prep/school starting then she won't be "the girl with the funny eye". Our baby has a large birthmark on her face which if it is still noticeable when she is 4 we will get it removed purely to prevent teasing at school.

    My child underwent ptosis surgery for his droopy eyelids since birth. Although in his case it was more to prevent laziness of the side of the ptosis, I would have still gone ahead with the surgery even if it was medically necessary cosmetic surgery. I would want my child to be as "normal" as possible. I was very satisfied with the surgery and happy that I went ahead with it.
    All the best with your child's surgery
