Is plastic surgery done to improve one's physical features, a sin?

[Reply to a question by Smt. Priyanka Seethepalli] Swami replied: Plastic surgery might become essential for professional reasons. A beautiful film actress got plastic surgery done to make the tip of her flat nose a little long and lean because she has to act in beautiful roles. For ordinary life, it is not necessary since real beauty is about the person’s internal qualities. It is not about the external body. Do you know that Hanumān is called the most beautiful (sundara). In the Rāmāyaṇa, the chapter called Sundara Kāṇḍa is about the efforts of the most beautiful Hanumān. Love based on internal qualities is always eternal. Love based on external beauty fades away in old age.
