Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a branch of medicine that aims to reconstruct or repair the parts of the human body through medical operations. Plastic surgery, comes from the Greek, namely “plastikos” which means “form” or “give form”. Science itself is a branch of surgery that aims to restore form and function is normal and “perfect” shape with the proportion of “better”. The type of plastic surgery is generally divided into two types: surgery for reconstruction and surgery for cosmetic (Aesthetic). What distinguishes surgery

Plastic surgery seems like the modern technology and the trend in this period, and many people do not realize that this surgery has evolved over the centuries of human life on earth. Plastic surgery was first performed at the beginning of the 8th century BC. At that time, the old Indian doctor started to implement the use of skin grafts to reconstruct human skin spots. Susrutha is a surgeon famous ancient India. He was the first physician nerhasil complete the construction of the nose. To complete this operation, it uses some of the skin of the forehead.

Some time later, the Romans began to carry out plastic surgery. Dr. Heinrich von Pfolspeundt using skin grafts from the back of the arm to help the healing in Europe. However, the practice of plastic surgery is not a common practice until the 19th and 20th centuries.

Despite the large contribution, but that is considered the “Father of Modern Plastic Surgery” is Sir Harold Gillies. Sir Gillies developed a variety of other techniques in the development of plastic surgery. The emphasis is to help people whose faces have been damaged in World War I.

  • The most obvious benefit of plastic surgery is to improve the appearance. Thus indirectly can improve self-confidence and a better body image.
  • Plastic surgery can support a person’s career, which looks into the main beam. The benefits of plastic surgery is felt by the celebrities in the running career. Examples such as Krisdayati doing repair surgery or rhinoplasty nose shape, Titi DJ who perform liposuction or liposuction, Melly gloeslow who also perform liposuction and many other Indonesian artists.
  • Plastic surgery can also be very useful for those who have health problems that may interfere with their performance. For example, someone with breasts that are too large often experience tremendous pain, so do the breast reduction plastic surgery to address the problem of appearance and health. Or breast reconstruction performed on patients suffering from breast cancer.

Viewpoint Religion, Ethics and Freedom Regarding Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery in Arabic is called jirahah at-tajmil is surgery to improve the appearance of one member body that appears, or to improve function, when the limb was reduced, missing / loose, or damaged.

Legal plastic surgery there are permissible and is to be rejected. Permissible plastic surgery is aimed to correct birth defects such as cleft lip, or defects that come later due to accidents, fires, or any similar, like a face damaged by fire / accident.

Plastic surgery to correct such defects of this law is permissible, based on the generality of the proposition that advocates for treatment ( al-tadawiy). The Prophet said, “It is not God sent down a disease, but God also lowering medicine .” (Bukhari, no.5246). The Prophet SAW said anyway, ” O servants of Allah Berobatlah you, God does not bring down the disease , but also lowers the cure .” (Tirmidhi, no.1961).

Treatment (plastic surgery) this kind can sometimes be obligatory, which, if allowed to continue would lead to death, then it is obligatory for him to medication could.

Allah says, which means (wallahu knows best), “and do your own hands into destruction” And in another verse says, “O ye who believe, do not eat each other neighbor’s property by way of vanity, except with prevailing commercial street with the same love-love between you. and do not kill yourselves. Allah is Merciful to you “

The above verse shows that Allah SWT. prohibit his servant forego damage (disease) in him. This operation can not be said to change God’s creation on purpose, because this operation for the treatment, although in the end became more beautiful, or beautiful in itself

As for plastic surgery that is forbidden, is aimed solely to beautify or embellish the face or body, without any intent to treat or correct a defect. For example, surgery to beautify the shape of the nose, chin, breasts, or surgery to remove wrinkles on the face of old signs, and so on.

 Evidence recited Allah says (which means): ” and would I (Satan) told them (change the creation of Allah), then really they change it” . (Surat an-Nisaa`: 119). This verse comes as a condemnation of acts of Satan who always invites people to do all sorts of immoral acts, which are changing God’s creation. Plastic surgery to beautify themselves within the meaning of the creation of God, it is forbidden.

  In addition, there is a hadith that the Prophet cursed the women who added false for beauty (Bukhari and Muslim). In this hadith there illat prohibited, such as to beautify. Imam Nawawi said, “In this hadith there is a signal that illegal is being done to find beauty. As if that is required for treatment or because of defects in teeth, then it’s okay.” Therefore, plastic surgery to beautify themselves forbidden.

Some of the reasons that led diharmkannya plastic surgery are as follows:

  1. a) Plastic surgery is changing the creation of Allah
  2. b) The presence of forgery and fraud
  3. c) On the other hand, that the negative more than the benefits, because of the danger that will happen is very large if the operation failed, could cause damage to limbs and even death.
  4. d) Terms of cosmetic surgery is justified by Islam; have a need for health purposes solely and no other intentions; not from unclean objects / forbidden and doctoral recognized professionals who are experts in that field that the surgery will be successful without the risk, danger and harm.

Speaking about the ethics course can not be separated from morality, which concerns the rules of good and bad. Every community has a moral standard that basically serves to protect themselves both in the social environment as well as each individual. Every society has the right to do whatever he thinks is right, as well as in performing plastic surgery. Although the purpose of beauty, as long as within reasonable limits, it is fine. The definition of the limits of reasonableness is the result of plastic surgery was not for the purpose of pornography. The boundaries of the so-called pornography is actually still the pros and cons in the community.

People often think the definition of freedom is able to think and act without restraint. According to Rudolf Stener, there are 2 of the freedom of free will and responsible freedom. In the phenomenon of free will, moral authority no longer comes from the community, family aaaatau Bible but an individual heartstrings. Any decision to do one thing to rely on him. So in this case means that everyone is free to perform plastic surgery as long as he wills. Meanwhile, according to the theory of responsible freedom, perform plastic surgery allowed for risks arising from such operations can actually be accountable to himself and does not harm others. That is sgala sorts of bad risks are likely to occur readily accepted. In taking this decision, of course, also need to think a mature person, because it is responsible in this case is based authority beyond himself (regulations, ideologies and value of the group). In Indonesia there is no legislation that prohibits a person to perform plastic surgery.

In the process of plastic surgery always involves science, environment, technology and society. To produce an advanced technology that plastic surgery is used science as a process to find it. So in other words that science as a process and product, technology as an object that is used and the community as a subject. While the environment is a means of support in doing plastic surgery. Higinies environment is one of the main factors determining the success of plastic surgery.

Everyone who perform plastic surgery especially cosmetic surgery aims to beautify themselves. But one thing we need to know that the true definition of beauty is the beauty of the inside of the so-called Innerbeauty . Someone who perform plastic surgery for that purpose is often labeled as people who are not grateful for the gift of the creator.
