What are the halachos?
Is it appropriate for a girl in shidduchim to get it to fix her nose?
How dangerous is it?
P.S. I’d never consider it but am surprised to see it discussed so cavalierly.
It’s a machlokes haposkim ASK A POSEK.
The general consensus is if there is a case of medical need or if the person’s nose is so disproportionate that she feels psychological trauma from the ridiculous look, then it’s permitted.
There is always a risk with general anesthesia. Depending on the expertise of the ENT, there may be other harmful side effects.
The hashkafic argument against cosmetic surgery is Hashem created the person as the most beautiful being. As long as the “deformity” is not causing a medical issue (physical or true mental) how can a person choose to modify and improve hashem’s creation?
mortgage your homes to redo yourself entirely….mishugas.
get a flattering haircut. highlight the color if it needs some life to it. go to a classy dept store and have your face made up by a licensed cosmetologist and if you buy some of the products ask her to write down what to put where and how. dress in colors that are flattering to your complexion and size and always make sure your clothes and shoes are clean and pressed and shined.
this will go a long way without breaking the bank.
