Down Syndrome + Plastic Surgery?

I recently read an interesting article on a family who wanted to do plastic surgery on their child with Downs syndrome, in order to make the child appear more “normal”. It reminded me somewhat of the debate about hysterectomies for severely disabled young women, and the “Ashley Treatment”. What do you all think about the idea of modifying the looks of a child to appear more “normal”?
