The topic pretty much says it all.
While I respect all religions, please don't cite the Bible as reference.

I will let my opponent begin the match.

If they are being bullied for looks, it can help that.

If they are being bullied, flat out, and perhaps fear being recognised in the future by bullies once they leave school then a good way to avoid this is to get plastic surgery so as not to be identified.

People at one point in their lives are bound to feel insecure about the way they look. At one point in their lives, their insecurities will be a subject of mockery. The important lesson is to learn how to build one self up when one is teared down.
Plastic surgery may be able to alleviate the problem for now against one specific bully. However, it will make the person more superficial and insecure in the future. THink about it, she only got over her first problem by having something artificial drilled into her face. It does not build a person's self-confidence, but rather it tears it down if the person finds another flaw in him/herself again( Which he/she will because no one is perfect). Self-confidence needs to come from within not from the outside. Plastic surgery teaches teenagers that they are not good enough on their own. IT builds that message into their psyche. Until girls are grownup and have thought through what they want, they will continue to be vulnerable to such influences. Besides, society tends to look down on those with plastic surgery. Therefore, I don't see how that person will not receive criticism in the future for having an " unnatural" addition to his/her face.
Medically speaking, teenage plastic surgery is also undesirable. One goes through much change in terms of bone structure throughout the teenage years. Beauty is such a fragile thing that even the slightest shift in angles( ever heard of the golden triangle) can alter one's appearance.

There has always been controversy surrounding the issue of plastic surgery, even more so- teenage plastic surgery. The topic of question is whether teenagers should get plastic surgery if they were bullied in school.
