I Was Wondering….Would It Be “Unbiblical” To Get A Cosmetic Procedure Done?

Submitted by on October 14, 2012 – 10:52 amNo Comment


I was wondering would it be considered unbiblical to get a cosmetic procedure done? Does it matter on the reason or where your heart is at when considering it? What if it is for something that has been affecting your life due to mocking and feeling very unattractive about it like your skin and the procedure could help it?

His Precious Gift replies…

What does the Bible say about cosmetic surgery? Absolutely Nothing! There is nothing specifically in the Bible to indicate that plastic surgery is, in and of itself, wrong. However, there are several things that one needs to consider before deciding whether or not to undergo these procedures. We know that there are always risks, both physical and psychological. Cosmetic surgery is a tool. The question, of course, is how we use it.

As a Christian, I must recognize that beauty as an end unto itself is valueless, because all beauty is rooted in God and has a moral context. Now, there is also the issue of rejection, the Bible promises that you will come face-to-face with rejection. But God also promises eternal and unconditional acceptance. In the midst of your pain, you can know there is One who will never reject you. He’s the One who’s already suffered the greatest rejection for you.

Through Jesus, God has made a way for you to find complete acceptance in Him. He wants you to see yourself as He sees you − as the one He loves and will always welcome with open arms. In Him, you will find true healing. All beauty originates in God (Ps. 27:4). Beauty is important to God and reflects spiritual significance, as evidenced in the rainbow (Gen. 9:13), creation, and the God-ordained design of the Tabernacle and priestly robes (Ex. 25-28). As image-bearers, our beauty is secure and fixed in the loving, eternal gaze of our heavenly Father (Eph. 1:3-4).

Yet our bodies are important to God; Jesus died to redeem both our bodies and souls (Rom. 8:23). There are many instances where cosmetic procedures are necessary. I remember our 2-year-old son bit through an extension cord and burnt his mouth. We found a plastic surgeon who restored symmetry and proportion to our son’s features. To have left our child’s face distorted would have been unthinkable. Many car accidents and even cancers need restoration.

After saying all this I know that if you are asking it is because it’s really bothering you and my heart goes out to you . Before doing anything, pray and ask God to lead you in the right decision, remember that God sees the Heart and He knows how you feel. I truly hope that I was able to give you some guidance. I will be keeping you in prayer. Always remember you are loved.
