Introduction: Plastic surgery is based on the aesthetic improvement of patients. The profile of the population that seeks aesthetic procedures consists of patients with low levels of self-esteem who seek beauty standards. In addition, there is a portion of these individuals who have Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), and seek to improve extreme dissatisfaction with their appearance. Therefore, achieving the satisfaction of these patients in the postoperative period of cosmetic surgery becomes a challenge for surgeons. Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare the degree of satisfaction in the late postoperative period of rhinoplasty between two groups of patients, one of which was composed by patients with greater probability of having BDD. Material and Methods: A postoperative satisfaction questionnaire was applied (Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation, ROE) to the 30 patients on both groups. Results and Conclusion: An average difference of 4.7% was found in the ROE score between the two groups, with the group with the lowest probability of having BDD presenting the highest scores.
