Teen Gets a Nose Job to End Terrible Bullying

January 15, 2014 1 min read

The Little Baby Face Foundation is a organization that treats childhood facial birth defects with plastic surgery for free.  They have drawn criticism for performing surgery because of bullying, with critics coming very close to implying that the burden is on the victim to not let anyone make them feel "bad about themselves." article-0-1A670DD500000578-535_634x449 Renata who is 15 is one such story.  Because of incessant and terrible bullying at her school Renata left to be home-schooled.  There was nothing wrong with her.  She's smart and funny and well spoken.  Her school mates determined she had a nose that necessitated relentless bullying.  And so she left school.  For three years.  Barely leaving the house. She spoke with TODAY in an interview:

  Renata was simply known at school as, "the girl with the big nose."  It had become terribly painful.  There are so many people who would condemn Renata for her surgery because of the not so simple act of bullying.  The fact remains, however, that every day-every moment we are all judged on our looks. article-0-1A670DFB00000578-297_634x487 We are judged for being too fat or too thin or too young or old or too scarred.  We change our hair color, our nail color, plaster on makeup, get braces, get liposuction and breast implants, all in an attempt to make ourselves into the image of what we think is beautiful. article-0-1A670DFF00000578-46_634x656 Perhaps getting a nose reduction surgery just in order to walk the halls of a school without humiliation isn't vanity at all...but rather self preservation.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
