assalam o alaikumi would like to ask if plastic surgery just for a face-lift without changing features like nose etc,just pulling the skin to look younger is it haramthank youassalam alikum


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

We have already clarified in Fatwa 87848 that cosmetic surgery is of two kinds. Firstly, the cosmetic surgery that is permissible, this is the one which is done to remove a defect or the like. Secondly, the cosmetic surgery that is forbidden, this is the one which is done to attain beauty and to increase one's attractiveness. It appears to us that pulling the skin to appear younger is included in the second type which is forbidden as this is meant to attain beauty and increase one's attractiveness, and this is changing Allaah's Creation.

Please refer to the above Fatwa for more details.

Allaah Knows best.
