Background: Patients' attitudes about their nose changes after orthognathic surgeries. We aimed to evaluate the patient's opinion about nasal change and morphologic changes following orthognathic surgery.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study. The sample was derived from the population of patients who underwent orthognathic surgery in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran between 2017 and 2019. Subjects who underwent orthognathic surgery were studied. Subjects filled a modified nose evaluation form before and nine months after orthognathic surgery. For objective assessment, the nasolabial angle, nasofrontal angle, nasofacial angle, tip projection, and tip deviation and alar width were evaluated. Sixty-two patients were studied.
Results: Forty (64.5%) patients did not absolutely like their nose before orthognathic surgeries, two (3.2 %) expressed a little satisfaction, 17(27.4%) answered they liked more or less, and three liked very much. Nine months after orthognathic surgeries, 4 (6.5%) patients did not like their nose, nine patients (14.5%) liked a little, 30 (48.4%) liked more or less, and 19 liked very much. Analysis of the data demonstrated a significant difference in patients' satisfaction with their noses before and nine months after orthognathic surgeries (P<0.001). Patients’ satisfaction nine months after orthognathic surgery was not affected by nasal morphologic changes.
Conclusion: It seems, patients' satisfaction with their nose improved after orthognathic surgeries. Patients' attitude was not associated with nasal morphologic changes.
