Breast implants after weight loss

halal or haram?


I have lost alot of weight and have been left with unattractive breasts. I am 24 and I have the breasts you'd expect to see on an older woman. My breasts were previously a nice size and I am considering breast implants to restore them to what they used to be. I am unmarried and I am looking to marry, however, my breasts are so disgusting and they cause me alot of distress. I am scared that my future husband will reject me because of it or even seek alternatives like porn. I would like breast implants. I want to know what the Islamic ruling would be in this situation?

  1. The Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) taught his ummah to make a supplication when one faces any difficulty and said,

    “If a servant of Allah is afflicted with a misfortune and says:

    انا للہ و انا الیہ راجعون اللھمہ اجرنی فی مصیبتی واخلف لی خیرا منھا

    Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un, Allahumma ajirni fi musibati wa akhlif li khairan minha‘

    “..Verily we belong to Allah and truly to Him shall we return. O Allah! Protect me in this calamity that has befallen me and replace it with something better.”

    Allah will accept his prayer, grant him reward for his affliction, and replace it with something better.

    Sahih Muslim

    Umm Salamah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
    I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, "When a person suffers from a calamity and utters: 'Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un. Allahumma ujurni fi musibati, wakhluf li khairan minha (We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return. O Allah! Compensate me in my affliction, recompense my loss and give me something better in exchange for it), then Allah surely compensates him with reward and better substitute." Umm Salamah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: When Abu Salamah (May Allah be pleased with him) died, I repeated the same supplication as the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) had commanded me (to do). So Allah bestowed upon me a better substitute than him (I was married to Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)).


    I don‘t know the ruling for your problem but with Allah we have to seek help. May Allah help you

  2. I think you already know the answer to your question because a simple google search will give you the answer , however, it seems like your hoping someone would tell you that it's allowed, And I would like to tell you to be careful about that because not everyone are knowledge of Islam.

    Regards the cosmetic breast implant is not halal as it's considered as changing the image of god. Your breast was always like that , it's just before you had fat there before. and marriage only about sex ... just saying

  3. Assalaamualaykum Sister0038,

    I am not an Islamic Scholar, but I read your post very carefully.

    You imply that your breasts were a certain size prior to your immense weight gain, and that following your weight loss, they are sagging.

    It is likely that you have some excess skin in your chest area that previously accommodated your enlarged breast, but that it is no longer functional or "filled out" with any fat. You might want to consult a surgeon about having this excess skin removed, because it is no longer serving a purpose. That would restore the lift that you had pre-weight gain.

    If for whatever reason, this is not an option for you, I don't see anything wrong with getting implants that restore your original breast size pre-weight gain. Allah does not want us to be overweight (The Prophet Mohammad PBUH said that when we take our meals, we should fill our stomachs with 1/3 water, 1/3 food, and 1/3 air) and would therefore not punish you for losing weight! As long as the implants are your normal, original, God-given breast size, I don't see a problem with it.

    And Allah knows best,



  4. If you want plastic surgery, keep in mind breast size can increase significantly (av 1-3 cup size) during 1st pregnancy. That increase may help you regain your shape and size.

    • Yes, while you are pregnant they enlarge, but after breastfeeding it deflates completely. In my case of course. Maybe every one is different.

  5. Selam,

    There are exercises you can do that will help you get a fuller bust. Try those before you embark on every surgery- if Islamically permitted (I don't think it is, but Allah knows best).

    My friend tried youtube exercises and it enhanced her cup size.
    You can also wear a padded bra that will give your breasts more volume and you more confidence. However, I suppose you're worried about your potential spouse, aren't you..

    Also, I've heard of situations where sisters get break enlargement surgery done. They suffer many back pains and aches because of the weight of their breasts is too much for their backs and too much for them to carry.
    And often, they have to undergo surgery to make their breasts smaller.

    So please take everyone's advice on board before committing to anything.


    • Excellent advise given by sister Ruby... looks like she knows what’s she talking about. Have you made up your mind what to do now ?
