Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The goal of this study was to determine normal values for the FACE-Q rhinoplasty module.

DESIGN:

A prospective monocentric observational cohort study.

SETTING:

We tested FACE-Q Satisfaction with Nose and Satisfaction with Nostrils in two groups of patients, seeking or not a rhinoplasty.

PARTICIPANTS:

One hundred and four patients were included in the study, fifty-two in each group.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS:

Primary outcome was to identify possible cutting scores to establish normal values for each of the FQRM questionnaires.

RESULTS:

Regarding the Satisfaction with Nose scale, there was a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P < .001). Area under the ROC curve was 0.964 (95% CI = 0.931-0.997). Forty-seven points was the value presenting the best Youden index (sensitivity = 96.2%, specificity = 86.5%). Regarding the Satisfaction with Nostrils scale, there was a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P < .001). Area under the ROC curve was 0.820 (95% CI = 0.741-0.899). Sixty-four points was the value presenting the best Youden index (sensitivity = 94.2%, specificity = 53.8%).

CONCLUSION:

This is the first study to generate normative data for the FACE-Q rhinoplasty module. The findings presented here have important implications for future clinical care and research. The definition of a normal score can help practitioners to better analyse their patients and to support a therapeutic indication.
