Iran is one of the countries with the highest rate of rhinoplasty. In previous years, the rate of rhinoplasty was significantly higher in women than in men. However, the change that has taken place today has it that rhinoplasty is more common in men. More recently, young men are pursuing rhinoplasty, some for the second or third time. Changes in Iranian culture, psychological causes, and Iranian ethnic characteristics are among the cause of this trend.
