Patient Reported Outcome Measures

We would like cosmetic surgery service providers to routinely collect and report on Q-PROMs for all patients receiving the following procedures:

  • abdominoplasty
  • augmentation mammoplasty
  • blepharoplasty
  • liposuction
  • rhinoplasty
  • rhytidectomy

Patient satisfaction with the outcomes of cosmetic surgery is of singular importance. Completion of PROMs, pre- and post-operatively, allows for a patient’s own measurement of their health and health-related quality of life, and how this has been changed by the surgical intervention. PROMs are distinct from more general measures of satisfaction and experience, being procedure-specific, validated, and constructed to reduce bias effects.

The questionnaires should ideally be completed by the patient and collected pre- and post-operatively. The completed questionnaires should be scored and any changes between the scores can be attributed to the surgical intervention.

Questionnaires

Pre-operative and post-operative questionnaires are available for the following procedures:

  • Abdominoplasty

Tools to support data analysis

The Q-PROM tools were developed by researchers at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre (MSKCC) and McMaster University. MSKCC, the lead institution, has granted royalty-free use as part of the RCS data collection initiative. MSKCC charge for-profit researchers to use these tools.

Using the data gathered from the Q-PROMs

We recognise there will be challenges in collecting this information. However, the data gathered from the use of PROMs can be used in a variety of ways to empower patients, inform decision making and, where relevant, support quality improvement.
