 Plastic Surgery is Burqa Made of Flesh: Vatican Document

Undergoing plastic surgery is not at all worth, as it claims that it is a "burqa made of flesh", finds a new Vatican report.

The document, 'Women's Cultures: Equality and Differences' explained that cosmetic surgeries are aggressive towards the feminine identity and could also lead to eating disorders and depression, the Independent reported.


The document writers mentioned that any non-medico-therapeutic plastic surgeries are completely manipulative, as it amputates human expressions from the face, and physically reduces a woman's ability to empathize with others.

The paper also included a woman's quote in which she expressed her anger towards plastic surgeries and called it like wearing a "burqa made of flesh".

The document was submitted by a panel of female consultants at the Pontifical Council for Culture and will soon be discussed in detail.
