Introduction:Nasal cosmetic rhinoplasty has been one of the most popular and commonly used facial cosmetic surgeries in the world and in Iran during the last two decades. This study was conducted to systematically review all the studies done on the quality of life after the rhinoplasty. Materials and Methods:The comprehensive search was conducted in PubMed, Web of Science and Scopus databases, and all the studies that were conducted by Iranian authors from the beginning of the year 2000 to the end of 2017 on the quality of life after the rhinoplasty were extracted. Only prospective studies and studies performed in Iranian patients and have evaluated quality of life before and after rhinoplasty were included. Double publications and unrelated items were removed. Results:Finally, there were three eligible articles, in which 275 patients seeking rhinoplasty were surveyed in total. Quality of life six months after rhinoplasty significantly increased, but no significant change was observed three months after rhinoplasty. Conclusion:As a result, it seems that quality of life in Iran is improved 6 months after rhinoplasty, and this change in quality of life is not significant before 6 months.
