Is plastic surgery, not for recontstructive reasons, a sin? Like, getting a facelift? Getting calf implants? Breast implants?
In my NFP class we watched a video with a priest talking and he said sterilization is wrong for several reasons, and one is because it's a sin to alter perfectly functioning body parts. Wouldn't that mean cosmetic surgery is a sin?
I know I'm taking his statement out of context, but when I heard that statement I was like, "wait what?" Obviously altering a working body part to make it NOT work is different than altering a body part to make it more attractive. I'm just wondering if the Church has a stance on cosmetic surgery?
