Nonprofit Organization Performs Plastic Surgery - For Free

More and more kids are going under the knife, not for vanity reasons, but often times as a result of bullying. ABC News reports 76,000 American teenagers had cosmetic procedures in 2011, and the number continues to go up.

Fusion’s Morning Show chatted with the founder of the organization, as well as one of the patients, to take a closer look at the growing trend of youth and plastic surgery.
