The tendency to beauty is an intrinsic and natural desire of human-being who is always after it. According to the history, beauty surgery existed in Alexandria and old Rome. And plastic surgery in Iran has a record of more than 5 decades.

Considering the developments and expansions made in the meaning of ''Disease'', the psychiatrists and knowledgeable people started to declare the mental disorder resulting from person’s physical defects as a kind of disease and to declare the beauty surgical operations aimed at keeping mental balance and improvement as the way for treatment of this disease.

Main doubts regarding the legality of beauty surgeries were removed by considering the treatment aims of these kinds of surgeries and also the contemporary theories in authorization of surgeries aimed at beautifications, so that beauty surgeries now are considered legal and lawful and according to the note 2 of article 59 of Islamic penal code the conditions of the said article must be observed for removing the responsibility of beauty surgery.
