Physical appearance, nowadays, has, not only a very great psychological impact on how each person self-perceives, but also guides a very important part of the way things are going in everyone’s life. To accomplish to prove this aspect, we resorted to conduct a case study, following to emphasize the secondary psychological evolution of a rhinoplasty intervention on an 18-year-old female patient. Thus, after the intervention, it was shown that, during the postoperative period, besides a very good medical evolution, the patient also improved her psychological self-perception. The particularity of this case consists both in the early age of the patient and in the difficulty of the chosen procedure for the aesthetic nose correction.
