Project Title: Electronic Validation of the FACE-Q

Principal Investigator: Andrea Pusic, MD, MS

Clinical Coordinating Center: The Plastic Surgery Foundation

Project Description: The objective of this research, led by Andrea Pusic, MD, is to develop and validate an online FACE-Q survey. FACE-Q is a clinically useful, patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) of satisfaction and quality of life following elective surgical and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. The FACE-Q is intended to be easily incorporated in routine clinical practice to measure procedural outcomes. The FACE-Q will provide an important tool with which researchers and clinicians may evaluate the success of various facial aesthetic procedures from a patient perspective. This instrument currently is administered in a paper-pencil version ( Efforts are ongoing for validation of an electronic version of FACE-Q.

Status: Pilot Site Data Collection is now closed. Data analysis and manuscript preparation is in progress.
