Can I get surgery on the extra skin on my chest?

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah!

Am I allowed to do this or would this

I am a 20-year-old male and I am embarrassed about my nipples and was hoping I could do plastic/reconstructive surgery on them. Basically I don’t have one nipple on each chest, instead, I have extra nipples. They are very noticeable and look irregular. They do not cause me physical harm but psychologically it affects me.   

I have an embarrassing problem that I would like to discuss. haram. This is something that used to trouble me as a teenager as I would get embarrassed to take my top off when having to change clothes for P.E. As I have gotten older this doesn’t trouble me as much but I still wouldn’t take my top off or I’m worried about taking my top off because if I were to get married and there’s a possibility my spouse would get put off. 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh,

Yes, you may have surgery.

If someone changes a creation of Allah into something which is not natural then this is haram. However, if someone has something unnatural and they wish to change it to normal then this is permissible.

Only Allah knows best
