Generally speaking, if plastic surgery is sought for the purpose of excessive beautification that would change the creation of Allah, then it is not allowed. However, if one has surgery with a view to removing some kind of disfigurement that causes the one psychological problems, such as if the nose is extremely big or crooked, then one is allowed to resort to plastic surgery in this case.
Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: “As a Muslim, you are allowed to undergo nasal surgery if your nose is excessively large and abnormal in size and it causes you undue psychological and emotional trauma. This permission in Islam, however, is conditional on such a procedure being considered rather safe and being recommended to you by a trustworthy and reliable specialist or specialists in the field.
Having said this, however, I must caution you against resorting to this procedure simply for cosmetic purposes, for to do so for mere cosmetic reasons is considered akin to mutilation of the creation of Allah. If, on the other hand, it is considered a deformity and your nose causes you emotional and psychological harm as it invites jeers and laughs, then that is considered a genuine reason for undertaking corrective surgery. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have told `A’ishah, “You are allowed to remove what is objectionable and causing harm!” One of the accepted principles of jurisprudence states “harm or injury shall be averted.” There are also precedents from the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in the sources that he allowed his companions to resort to corrective procedures in case of broken teeth and nose.”
