Facelifts and Tummy Tucks a Form of “Aggression”?


ROME — A new Vatican document expresses a negative view of elective plastic surgery for women, warning that procedures such as facelifts and tummy tucks can become a form of “aggression” that threatens female identity.

Surgical alterations in appearance, the document says, can “amputate the expressive possibilities of the human face, which are so connected to empathic abilities,” and “can be aggressive toward the feminine identity, showing a refusal of the body.”

The same document compares plastic surgery to “a burqa made of flesh”.

Trivialize much?

    There are people–mostly women–who are so addicted to plastic surgery, Boxtox, etc. that it’s at least as constricting as a burqua. Anyway, since when is it news that the Vatican is opposed to vanity?

    Always curious why Francis focuses on women mostly (except, of course, when he decides to criticize men).

    Is it a funny trick to discuss of the majority of the world problems with himself ,the author offers us to comment the plastic surgery?
