If it causes them some emotional discomfort then cosmetic surgery is definitely an option.He said that there are women who have had to have breast implant and many women have benefited from it,especially when the surgery is non-invasive and where side effects are minimal.
Pastor Tony said there is really 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 psychological health is improved.
