JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery : The FACE-Q Scales for Patients Undergoing Rhinoplasty
Interview with Stephen B. Baker, MD, DDS, author of Development and Psychometric Evaluation of the FACE-Q Scales for Patients Undergoing Rhinoplasty
ConclusionClassical aesthetic rhinoplasty appears to improve nasal obstruction symptoms, and this is stable through time. However, limitations apply.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1683858The dynamics of the doctor–patient relationship has been complicated as more patients seem to expect perfection in this age of selfies and Internet postings. The preoperative patient interview is critical to recognize both body language clues and subtle but apparent red flags to avoid rhinoplasty on potentially unhappy patients. This interview should include routine use of a body dysmorphic disorder screening questionnaire since legions of these patients are undiagnosed prior to surgery and few, if any, are ever satisfied with even an excellent surgical result. These patie...
AbstractIntroductionThe aim of this randomized controlled study was to analyze the long-term results of patients undergoing rhinoplasty because of severe septal deviation and to evaluate the stability of results.Materials and MethodsThe study was performed with a randomized design. Patients were randomly divided into four groups: group 1, spreader flaps were used in combination with spreader grafts; group 2, spreader flaps were used alone; group 3, spreader grafts were used alone; and group 4, neither spreader flaps nor grafts flaps were used. Patients answered the Italian version of the FACE-Q rhinoplasty module. Anthropo...
Conclusions Our multipurpose bilateral augmentation spreader graft positioned above the septal plane was effective in dorsal and tip augmentation without the need for alloplastic material. Conservative hump reduction combined with augmentation of the relatively deficient areas of the nose produces a balanced nasal profile.
Conclusion The results of the study reveal a new objective variable that can impact nasal tip dynamics and patient-related differences following rhinoplasty. This study not only brings forth a different perspective in the evaluation of nasal tip dynamics but can also provide data for determining ideal values for cartilage prefabrication.
Conclusions High-level evidence studies demonstrate promising results for the use of both NPs and MBPs in the care of plastic surgery patients. Further study in this field is warranted.
The present study aims to asses the most common deformities in oft-revised noses and their predictable surgical treatments.
Conclusion: Tongue flap remains the flap of choice for managing very difficult and challenging anterior palatal fistulas compared to local flaps.
Conclusion: Use of adipofascial extension while planning a radial forearm free flap to cover the nasal side of the flap and pedicle in the nasal floor helps to reduce the nasal crusting and secondary haemorrhage.
A rhinoplasty, or nose job, is surgery performed to alter the way your nose functions and looks. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 220,000 rhinoplasties are performed yearly, making this the most common facial plastic surgery procedure. Rhinoplasty can simultaneously help you improve breathing and achieve a more balanced appearance. Is rhinoplasty right for me? A common medical reason for rhinoplasty is difficulty breathing through the nose. Nasal obstruction can cause problems with exercise, disturb sleep, contribute to snoring and sleep apnea, or interfere with other activities. If medical tre...
