A full-color, step-by-step atlas of rhinoplasty surgical techniques

Part of the McGraw-Hill Plastic Surgery Atlas series, Rhinoplasty is an unmatched visual guide to learning how to successfully perform this challenging procedure. Featuring 180 full-color illustrations, this is the perfect primer for surgeons to begin and sharpen their understanding of rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty addresses the relevant anatomy, operative setup, surgical steps, and postoperative care to optimize patient outcomes. The book is organized by anatomic location and covers in detail the numerous maneuvers that are frequently used to shape the various parts of the nose. Designed to provide the most relevant information in the clearest manner possible, Rhinoplasty features an easy-to-apply presentation consisting of bulleted text on the left- hand page and high-quality illustrations on the right.

Opening chapters include coverage of nasal anatomy, cartilaginous support, arterial support, innervations and muscles of the nose, treatment planning, operative setup, and basic approaches. The book then goes on to cover actual corrections, including:

  • Dorsal hump deformity

  • Doral augmentation

  • Radix reduction and augmentation

  • Increasing and decreasing tip rotation

  • Lengthening the short nose

  • Alar base modification

  • Alar-columella relationship modification

  • Septal modification

  • And more

Also included is an appendix illustrating key surgical instruments.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: This artistically crafted atlas presents subtle nuances of rhinoplasty that go beyond the basic anatomy, patient care, and surgical techniques.
Purpose: This book represents the collective endeavor of surgeon and artist to provide text and illustrations that will serve rhinoplasty surgeons.
Audience: Although at first glance this book appears geared for novices, upon closer inspection it is apparent that it also contains pearls of wisdom for experienced surgeons.
Features: The book starts with the anatomy relevant to the surgical topics covered in the later chapters. Superb color illustrations appear throughout the remaining 34 chapters. The text is brief yet straightforward, placing precise emphasis on what is truly important. Beyond anatomical considerations, the book considers the planning of aesthetics with an eye toward nasal function. The rudimentary essentials of the procedure and the exposure of the inner nose are juxtaposed with the more sophisticated methods of harvesting cartilage or bone. Most of the later chapters identify various surgical maneuvers for dealing with the nose and highlight the segments that must either be preserved or corrected to achieve a pleasing result. The authors emphasize the crucial relationship between the anatomic parts of the nose along with the appropriate schema to alter or reconstruct them. The book ends with patient education materials and coding information that is essential for remuneration.
Assessment: There are sophisticated books dealing with the complexities of the nose. However, surgeons who work in this area are well aware that basic tenets must be adhered to for the outcome to be successful. This book is a superb source of information on the rudimentary tenets of rhinoplasty.
