Abstract

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the nose, with implications beyond physical changes. This review synthesizes evidence regarding the psychological effects and quality of life outcomes post-cosmetic rhinoplasty. Through a comprehensive literature review, it explores the psychological aspects, including body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), the development of assessment tools like the rhinoplasty outcome evaluation (ROE) questionnaire, the Derriford assessment scale (DAS), and the Rosenberg self-esteem scale. The review concludes that while cosmetic rhinoplasty positively impacts psychological well-being and quality of life, further research is needed to understand long-term effects and optimize patient care.
