Plastic surgery in Tanzania

As a law-abiding citizen, I have noted an increase in the number of hospitals offering plastic surgery in Tanzania. My problem with this is that plastic surgery encourages people to alter their appearance which is not good for security reasons. Does the law allow people to change their appearance as they please? Enlighten me on this.

We understand your concern. However we have reviewed laws, regulations and guidelines on public health and found no restriction on plastic surgery. There is no law that prohibits plastic surgery in Tanzania because such surgery is considered essential for health reasons. There are some people who need plastic surgery to reverse damage caused by scars. Others need weight loss to avoid diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. These are a few examples which necessitate plastic surgery. Government and private owned hospitals in Tanzania offer plastic surgery services of different kinds. These hospitals are licensed to offer such services to the public. Your concern may be on cosmetic plastic surgery, which we have also found no restriction in the law.
