A Self-administered History Questionnaire For Cosmetic Facial Surgery Candidates

A Self-administered History Questionnaire For Cosmetic Facial Surgery Candidates Abstract • The collection of information concerning a patient's history is every bit as important in the evaluation of candidates for cosmetic surgery as it is in any other branch of medicine. Consequently, a self-administered questionnaire was developed to save time and to ensure thoroughness. The questionnaire helps elicit a patient's motivations and expectations, and also satisfies some of the requirements of the legal doctrine of informed consent. A particularly noteworthy feature of the form is the "Personal Inventory" section, which attempts to "red flag" patterns of psychogenic conditions in prospective patients.

Abstract

Abstract • The collection of information concerning a patient's history is every bit as important in the evaluation of candidates for cosmetic surgery as it is in any other branch of medicine. Consequently, a self-administered questionnaire was developed to save time and to ensure thoroughness. The questionnaire helps elicit a patient's motivations and expectations, and also satisfies some of the requirements of the legal doctrine of informed consent. A particularly noteworthy feature of the form is the "Personal Inventory" section, which attempts to "red flag" patterns of psychogenic conditions in prospective patients.
