Should Christians Have Cosmetic Surgery?

There is nothing wrong in trying to improve one’s appearance as much as may be possible. If you are bothered about something in your appearance, approach it just as you would any other physical problem you might be born with. Like crooked teeth. Lousy eyesight. Or poor hearing. It’s just as easy to be born with a nose that’s too small. Or ears that stick out. Or breasts that never develop. Plastic surgery can often solve these problems. Usually permanently.

In fact, no less than Pope Plus XII declared on Oct. 14, 1958:

“If we consider physical beauty in its Christian light and if we respect the conditions set by our moral teachings, then aesthetic surgery is not in contradiction to the will of God, in that it restores the perfection of that greatest work of creation, man.”
