In brief: No

Not always. Most people who desire rhinoplasty do not have bdd.
It is important to determine those patients who do have this, as they are unlikely to be satisfied with any cosmetic surgery.

In brief: No

Some need a repair from an injury or birth defect.
For some it is oddly shaped and very conspicuous. There are many who just want to have a "normal" looking nose so they don't stand out in a crowd. There are some that are disturbed, and that is a problem.
