Background: In Iran, cosmetic operations, particularly rhinoplasty, are becoming more popular among individuals with Multiple Sclerosis. Methods: Between 2019 and 2021, we conducted a retrospective cross-sectional survey in a referral center for patients with Multiple Sclerosis. Results: Cosmetic surgery was performed on 178 patients (18.2%) with MS. Rhinoplasty was the most prevalent procedure, with 121 individuals undergoing it (12.3%). In terms of the prevalence of all cosmetic surgery, there was no substantial variations between genders (p-value: 0.687). Conclusion: Although MS patients are more willing to undertake aesthetic surgery, it was not possible to detect a real occurrence rate. Because of the time difference between this research and prior studies, we believe additional research involving diverse referral centers should be conducted before making a definitive conclusion.
