Is a psychoanalysis required before patients are allowed to receive rhinoplasties? Can the results of the psychoanalysis keep patients from being candidates for the procedure?
Each individual has unique needs. It is certainly not unusual for a plastic surgeon to suggest a consultation with a psychiatrist or psychologist before cosmetic surgery to determine if the patient is suitable for the operation. This is something that a well trained and thoughtful plastic surgeon should always consider.
No- we do not require a psychoanalysis.
psychoanalysis is not part of the pre-op work-up for rhinoplasty
IF the plastic surgeon thinks you may have issues they may ask you to be see by a psychiatrist first, but there is no requirement for psychoanalysis.
