Severian sees "wires and bands of metal" that were placed under Jolenta's
flesh.  Why would Talos bother with that if he could make her beautiful
with a "glamor" or by raising her self esteem?

What I have always wondered is where Talos took her to perform this
invasive surgery, and how she recovered so quickly.  I suppose it's
possible that the flying saucer descended and Talos did the work in there,
but it would have been conspicuous, to say the least.
