Introduction: Considering the increasing number of rhinoplasty applicants, lack of information regarding the psychological characteristics of these applicants, and specific cultural, social, and religious features in Iran. 
Objectives: the present study aimed at assessing the psychological characteristics of rhinoplasty applicants.
Materials and Methods: This study was performed on 137 rhinoplasty applicants (surgery group) and 167 people reluctant to perform surgery (control group). After obtaining the subjects’ informed consent, the questionnaires (including standardized and normalized tests of quality of life, self-esteem, body image, and general health) were distributed between the surgery and control groups (before and after the operation). The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS.
Results: The general health of both male and female in the control group was far better than those in the surgery group. Life quality scores in the surgery group were significantly lower at some indices compared to the control group. Positive body image scores of the control group exceeded those of the surgery group. Also, there was a significant difference between the studied groups in terms of general health such that its scores were higher in the control group.
Conclusion: Based on the findings, cosmetic surgery applicants have more psychological problems than people uninterested in cosmetic surgery.
