The Bible doesn’t say plastic surgery is wrong – Pastor Tony Rapu

Senior Pastor of The House of Freedom, Tony Rapu, says that the Bible is silent about plastic surgery and as such opens doors for other considerations.

The cleric, who is also a medical doctor, said this in a video posted on Instagram.


“The bible is silent about plastic surgery and there is really nothing in it that tells us it is wrong, so there has to be other considerations,” he began.

“If a person is conscious of a deformity or physical aspect of his or her body that is causing them some emotional discomfort, then cosmetic surgery is certainly an option.

“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.

“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.”

According to him, plastic surgery could be termed wrong if it is an “attempt to meet an emotional void in a physical way or to attract unnecessary attention to a person, or to seek approval from other people.”


Pastor Rapu added: “If surgery is for sexual attractiveness, simply because you want to be found more sexually attractive, then perhaps you are dealing with a deeper issue in terms of esteem.

“So if surgery is for enhancing a vanity, then we are dealing with issues, internally, that surgery would probably never be able to satisfy.”
