Preoperative identification of psychiatric illness in aesthetic facial surgery patients.


The purpose of this study was to evaluate the preoperative use of a two-part standardized assessment program (Prime-MD, Biometrics Research Department, New York State Psychiatric Institute) to objectively detect psychiatric disorders in facial plastic surgery patients, and to compare its use to findings identified by the facial plastic surgeon. Seventy-five new patients requesting aesthetic facial surgery at two academic centers and two private practice locations were evaluated.
