Assessing normal values for the FACE-Q rhinoplasty module: An observational study

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 (sensitiv-ity = 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.
