In this fatwa:
It is permissible in the Shari`ah to undergo cosmetic surgery to remove a defect which is caused by an accident or the like, or a defect which is by birth, or to reduce signs of aging, or for beautification.
Answering your question, the General Iftaa’ Department in Jordan, states the following:
It is permissible in the Shari`ah to undergo cosmetic surgery to remove a defect which is caused by an accident or the like, or a defect which is by birth, or to reduce signs of aging, or for beautification. This is based on the Hadith in which the Prophet permitted for a person whose nose was cut off to replace it with a nose of gold.
The Hadith reads as follows: Narrated `Urfajah bin As`ad: “My nose was severed on the Day of Al-Kulab during Jahiliyyah. So I got a nose of silver which caused an infection for me, so the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordered me to get a nose made of gold.” (At-Tirmidhi and others)
The Prophet’s order to this person was meant to remove harm, but He (peace be upon him) didn’t prevent him from using silver.
Al-Imam Al-`Aini (may Allah have mercy on him) said: “Products that remove freckles and beautify a woman’s face for husband are permissible, and this ruling applies to removing hair as well.
When Our Mother `A’ishah was asked about peeling off the face, she replied: “If the skin of the face has changed due to a certain condition, then it is permissible to peel it off.” In another narration, ” If it was for the husband’s sake, then do it.” A
bu `Ubaid reported that the jurists permitted extending hair with any material, except natural hair.” (`Umdat Al-Qari 20/193)
However, undertaking unnecessary surgery is prohibited in the Shari`ah for the Hadith where Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) cursed the maker and wearer of a wig and the tattooer and the one who is tattooed.” (Muslim)
Almighty Allah knows best.
