Background and Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between perfectionism and depression with body image in women asking for cosmetic surgery.

Methods: In this study 360 women (20-40 years old) asking for cosmetic surgery (nose and chest) in north of Tehran in year 1397 were selected by convenience sampling. The questionnaires that were used included multidimensional perfectionism in Tehran (2007), Beck depression (BDI-II 1996) and body image (MBSRQ 1983) and to analyze the findings, multi-variant regression analysis and Pearson correlation coefficient were used.

Results: The results showed there is an inverse relationship between perfectionism and body image. That means higher perfectionism shows that the body image is weaker. Also there is an inverse relationship between depression and body image. That means higher depression shows that the body image is weaker. There is a direct relationship between perfectionism and depression. That means high perfectionism in subjects shows that depression is high in them (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Perfectionism and depression can predict the body image, perfectionism prediction was stronger, as it had a higher beta value than depression.
