It wasn't about the surgery - we all knew that was unrealistic. It was about the fact that the guy was so horrified and disgusted with himself that he had convinced himself that he had this one fatal flaw that no one could fix. And dealing with the reality that you have something wrong with you that others will refuse to accept. The whole show delved around that theme, just as it does every week.
