Nigerian pastor, Tony Rapu has argued that he is yet to find a Bible scripture that preaches against cosmetic surgery.
The pastor who doubles as a doctor specialized in body enhancement via his Instagram page argued that if a person was conscious of a deformity or physical aspect of the body which causes emotional discomfort, then cosmetic surgery should definitely be considered
“There really is nothing wrong with enhancing the quality of a person’s life by surgery especially when the person is able to breathe better, walk better, or talk better and especially when psychological health is improved,” he posted.
”There are women who have had mastectomies and have had to have breast implants and we know many people who have benefited from surgeries, especially when the surgery is noninvasive and the side effects are minimal,” he wrote.
According to him, challenges from cosmetic surgery emanate when the intent is for sexual attractiveness and vanity, adding that such options are related to issues of low self esteem
“If it is simply because you want to be found more sexually attractive, then perhaps you are dealing with a deeper issue in terms of esteem, internal issues that surgery would probably never be able to satisfy,” he added.
