Nose Job

Q:

Greetings , I have a big nose and it gives my a lot of anxiety , depression and mood swings . It messes up my days and I get made fun of because of my big nose . I cry myself to sleep and always avoid people . It’s big and ugly and everyone agrees and it’s killing me . Can I get a nose job to make my nose just small enough to fit my small face . I don’t wanna do it for beauty and I don’t wanna make it too small but I want it to fit myself so my social anxiety would fade. Is this permissible ?

A:

Salaam Alaykum,

Ayat Sistani allows plastic surgery

His office was asked:
Q. Can the face or other part of body be beautified by surgery?
A. As long as one is protects themselves from unlawful glance or touch, it is permissible.

Regards,
Abbas Jaffer
