Considering Allah created us all, plastic surgery to cosmetically baffles me. It’s as if saying what Allah created isn’t good enough. If it’s a purely medical reason then I understand, here I don’t mean using the excuse of a rhinoplasty being carried out for a ‘deviated septum’ which may not even exist or cause an issue.
Allah gives you sight, the ability to hear and taste, the ability to walk and then you see that you want a smaller nose and think yes it’s halal for me to change myself confuses me. I don’t know the exact laws about it being halal but tattoos aren’t allowed while apparently certain Marjas allow it. But that’s a permanent change to your body like plastic surgery is. So surely it isn’t allowed?
Personally I wouldn’t want to change myself even though I am insecure of my looks. I know I am blessed to have my health, why would a new nose make me beautiful when Allah has bestowed this one upon that reminds me of my dad and his mum and my rich family background? It’s as if I’m saying their noses are ugly and I deserve better. Imagine being that ungrateful.
Once again im not saying actual corrective surgery is bad or cosmetic surgery is bad. Do as you wish as long as you don’t hurt anyone. Do what makes you happy. But personally that’s why I wouldn’t do it. I hope I never hate my genetics to do it.
