Is Plastic Surgery Allowed?

Recommended Posts

asalamalakum :sl:

 

i'd like to know if plastic surgery allowed in Islam?

 

i'm asking because i had 3 surgeries as an infant. one at 10 days old, one at 2 months old and one at around a year old or so. the scars i have are not very nice looking. they are embarassing to me. since i am 17, almost 18, my parents have been telling me that i could get plastic surgery and make this scar disappear. i'm not getting surgery to look prettier, make myself look better to the public eye or anything of that. its for myself.

Generally plastic surgery is impermissible but I am quite sure there is a dispensation for medical need and to restore the body to its original form after an accident. I am sure people many will tell you its haram but check with a local scholar about your personal circumstance. If the scars are not causing harm or restricting you in some way maybe you should just put up with them. Use the money you save for a Hajj :sl:

assalaamu alaykum sister,

 

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid from Islam QA says yes, it is permissable to remove scaring from operations amongst other things.
