Abstract: 

Objectives: This project appraised the personality patterns of cosmetic rhinoplastic patients.
Methods: This was a descriptive-cross sectional evaluation. The subjects of the project were 30 clients (24 female, 6 male) requesting cosmetic rhinoplastic surgery from ENT clinic of Hazrat-e-Rasoul Hospital. They were referred to the psychiatric ward of the hospital for preoperational psychological assessment. The subjects were evaluated by DSM based clinical interview and MCMI-II test. The data were analyzed by descriptive statistical methods and chi-square.
Findings: The frequencies of obsessive-compulsive and narcissistic personality patterns were significantly more prevalent than other personality patterns.
Results: The requests for cosmetic surgeries should be considered with regard to interaction of individual psychological factors and cultural influences. Taking advantage of standardized assessments in the areas of body image and personality for evaluation of the degree of dissatisfaction with body image would prevent unnecessary surgeries.
