As-Salamu `alaykum. I understand that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) forbade men and women to change their shape. Does it mean that Muslims are not allowed to carry out cosmetic surgeries? Are such surgeries haram (unlawful) in Islam?
We read on the news about the first patient in France to undergo a face transplant, where facial tissue from a donor who was brain-dead was used to repair severe damage from the top of the woman's nose to her chin. The woman had been bitten on her face by a dog. The doctors who carried out the operation said, "We decided to go ahead with the transplant operation of the face because it does not only restore the anatomy and the aesthetics, but also the function of this face." The team painstakingly transplanted skin, muscle tissue, connecting lots of blood vessels and nerve cells.The above case raises many ethical and Islamic concerns that require an urgent response by Muslim scholars and jurists. Is carrying out such an operation permissible? Also, is it permissible to use the face of a person who is declared brain-dead for such a purpose? Are we allowed to go for a face transplant operation for both major and minor deformities?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Does Islam allow facial plastic surgery? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I am a guy in my early youth. I try to abide by the Islamic ways and to be a good Muslim. But I have a problem. Allah created me with a big nose, and it sticks out of my face prominently. I try not to think of it, but every time I pass by a mirror or see myself in a picture, it bothers me greatly, although I don’t show it. My friends and even my family make fun of my nose from time to time. Although they are joking, it still hurts me deeply, and I try my best not to show it. Am I allowed to undergo plastic surgery? Jazakum Allah khayran.
