I got picked on for my name, my hair, my clothes, having glassess... all sorts of things. Surgery to disguise physical difference is looking at the issue through the wrong end.
EDIT: And by the by, my elementary school actually had a program for the mainstream kids to mentor a disabled kid. It was a simple program that taught us very effectively that some people are different and they're still people. If anything, I think the disabled kids got picked on less at my school.
