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 psycholo-gical 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 sig- nificantly more prevalent than other personality patterns.

Results:The requests for cosmetic surgeries should be considered with regard to interaction of in- dividual psychological factors and cultural influences. Taking advantage of standardized assess-ments in the areas of body image and personality for evaluation of the degree of dissatisfaction with body image would prevent unnecessary surgeries.
