Rhinoplasty is one of the defining procedures of plastic and reconstructive surgery, and it retains its stature as the most diverse and challenging of all plastic surgery procedures. Its roots stem from early efforts in nasal reconstruction and contemporary rhinoplasty reflects a rich history dating back to early descriptions of forehead reconstruction thousands of years ago. The emergence of modern rhinoplasty as a nuanced restorative and artistic procedure has allowed for an evolution of surgical technique that continues to the present day. As the most central and prominent facial features, the nose has distinct anatomic features that render it uniquely susceptible to injury and to scrutiny. Success in rhinoplasty is predicated on an understanding of structural and aesthetic considerations. The art and science of nasal surgery is truly a   marriage of form and function.
This book describes the most recent clinical and research perspectives in the field of rhinoplasty. The contributing authors reach across specialty and international borders, sharing ideas from their respective surgical fields; this work should have broad appeal to an international readership. Over the years, rhinoplasty has matured into a field that strikes a balance between structural correction and aesthetic refinement.
Contemporary thinking on rhinoplasty emphasizes a balance between preservation of supporting structures and a wide variety of approaches to rebuilding natural contours  and structure through judicious resection and grafting. Surgical methods are continuously refined and have been influenced by new approaches in tissue engineering. The advent of open access publishing has afforded an unprecedented opportunity for reaching rhinoplasty surgeons around the world with these vital clinical and research innovations.
This book begins with a discussion of the rudiments of nasal analysis and planning, discusses execution of surgical techniques, and concludes with consideration of  surgical complications. Opening chapters by Dr's Pawel Szychta and Abdullah Etoz  cover preoperative assessment of the rhinoplasty patient, anthropometric analysis of  the nose, and ethnic aspects of nasal anatomy. Dr Rui Xavier details experience with a  modified delivery approach that improves precision and preservation of support in  endonasal rhinoplasty. Dr Norifumi Nakamura elaborates on an elegant conceptual  and practical approach to correction of unilateral and bilateral cleft lip nasal deformity. Dr Salvador Rodríguez-Camps Devís describes long term outcomes in combining temporalis fascia grafting with alar resection in tip rhinoplasty. Dr Paul  O’Keeffe details progress in the use of a thin Medpor nasal shell for reconstituting  nasal structure, and Dr. Aleksandar Vlahovic provides background and practical  surgical approach to the challenging area of nasal hemangiomas. Closing chapters by  Dr Sarit Cohen and Aris Ntomouchtsis consider minimally invasive approaches and  mucous cysts as a complication of rhinoplasty.
This unique book thus provides invited treatises on the breadth of rhinoplasty from a diverse set of leaders in the field. The contributors collectively present expertise from  the fields of plastic and reconstructive surgery, facial plastic surgery, and oralmaxillofacial  surgery. Their collective experience as thought leaders covers a broad  swath of cosmetic and reconstructive rhinoplasty specialists. Included herein are  critical analytic insights, a wealth of illustrations, and accompanying schematics and  clinical photographs. This volume serves as a resource for both students and for  experienced aesthetic and reconstructive surgeons wishing to expand their understanding of rhinoplasty. Within this book is a wealth of proven and innovative approaches ranging from minor refinement to major reconstruction. The diversity of  subjects covered reflects the inherent complexity of the art and science of rhinoplasty.
In tracing the development of rhinoplasty from early reconstructive efforts to the sophisticated aesthetic and restorative techniques of modern day, one can appreciate  the rich history of this specialty. Within this volume are philosophies and approaches intended to provide a balanced perspective on the ever changing field of rhinoplasty.
Discussion of structural grafting and approaches to augmentation are counterbalanced by consideration of judicious resection and refinement. Correction of congenital  deformities is followed by consideration of acquired complications. The overarching  goal of this work is to instill an understanding of the subtleties of nasal structure and  how nasal anatomy can be adapted to maximize function and achieve a natural,  pleasing appearance. The dedicated rhinoplasty surgeon progressively grows in his or  her understanding of nasal anatomy, developing an armamentarium of skills over the  course of many years of dutiful study. It is the purpose of this book to serve the reader  as a trusted companion in this journey.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this Textbook. Seems really good and I will find out more about this procedure.
    I want to go for a nose surgery in Toronto by Dr. Jerome Edelstein, because I'm not satisfied of its shape and I'm sure that after the procedure, my confidence will boost.
