Objective: To compare the preoperative and postoperative satisfaction of patients with nasal deformities who have
undergone septorhinoplasty as single staged procedure.
Method: It was a propective study, done in Dr. Ruth K. M. Pfau, Civil hospital Karachi, from 1ST Jan 2018 to 31ST July
2019, on 25 patients who have undergone septo rhinoplasty. Satisfaction level of patients was evaluated preoperatively
and post operatively. Rhinoplasty evaluation outcome (ROE) questionnaire was used. Scores were described as Poor
< 12, Good 12-18, Excellent > 18.
Result: In our study, there were 17 males and 8 females. It was found that preoperatively out of 25 patients, the satisfaction
level was poor in 24 patients (96%), while in 1 patient (4%), it was good. Postoperatively the results showed
that about 17 patients (68%) had good while 8 patients (32%) had excellent satisfaction scores. Mean preoperative
satisfaction of patients was 5.5 ±3.61 which became 18.0 ±1.49 postoperatively. The mean preoperative satisfaction
in 17 males was 6.07 ±3.62 and postoperatively it became 18.35 ±1.59. While in 8 females, mean satisfaction was
4.16 ±3.48 preoperatively, which became 17.16 ±0.75 after surgery.
Conclusion: It has been concluded that most of the patients were found to be satisfied with the procedure. The study
is helpful in knowing the expectations of patients and achieving realistic goals in septorhinoplasty.
