dc.description.abstract The FACE-Q Rhinoplasty module is a patient-reported outcome instrument developed for the assessment of primarily aesthetic outcomes of rhinoplasty. The aim of our study was to produce a Finnish version of the instrument and validate it for use in patients undergoing nasal reconstruction as well as those treated with a rhinoplasty. Finnish versions of the FACE-Q scales Satisfaction with Nose, Satisfaction with Nostrils and Adverse Effects: Nose, were translated following established guidelines. Patients undergoing nasal resection, reconstruction or rhinoplasty in Helsinki University Hospital plastic surgery department in 2009-2019 were identified using theatre records. A total of 240 Finnish-speaking patients 18-85 years old were approached with a postal survey questionnaire. The questionnaire included the translated FACE-Q modules and those for Satisfaction with Facial Appearance, Appearance-Related Psychosocial Distress and Satisfaction with Outcome, as well as the general health-related quality of life instrument 15 D. The FACE-Q scales translated readily to Finnish. Eighty-three patients (35%) responded to the survey. Most FACE-Q scales performed well with high internal consistency (Cronbach's alphas 0.87-0.92) and repeatability. Only the Adverse Effects: Nose scale displayed poor consistency and a floor effect with 18% of the patients reporting no adverse outcomes. Answers to the Appearance-Related Psychosocial Distress scale were skewed towards no experienced stress. Answers to the other scales were normally distributed with weak correlation with 15 D dimensions. The Finnish translations of the FACE-Q Rhinoplasty scales perform well at assessing a diverse group of patients including those undergoing nasal reconstruction as well as those undergoing rhinoplasty. en
