In “Development and Psychometric Evaluation of the FACE-Q Scales for Patients Undergoing Rhinoplasty,” Klassen et al1 present an exciting new patient-reported outcome (PRO) tool specific to these patients and intended to assess the aesthetic components of the procedure. Patient-reported outcomes are the patients’ feedback, elicited directly from them without interpretation by the physician or others, on how they perceive the physical, mental, or social condition related to their condition or treatment.2 The instrument described by Klassen et al1 has the potential to serve as an important new tool for the rhinoplasty surgeon. As Rhee and McMullin3 described in 2008, several outcome measures exist in facial plastic surgery. In particular, several PRO measures are available. However, the tool described by Klassen et al,1 specific to the aesthetic aspect of rhinoplasty, closes a gap for this popular procedure for which little data have previously been available.
