Cosmetic surgery on the nose to avoid being made fun of


Is it permissible for a person to have nose reduction surgery, because he is being exposed to ridicule and he cannot bear it?


Praise be to Allah.

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about this and he replied:

 I do not know of any reservations or any reason why this should be haraam, if it is possible to do it.
