This lavishly illustrated atlas will have wide appeal to the growing number of specialists who perform rhinoplasty (aesthetic and/or reconstructive surgery of the nose). In addition to plastic surgeons, ENT/otolaryngologists, head & neck surgeons, dermatologists and even oral surgeons are now incorporating rhinoplasties into their practices. Over 350,000 rhinoplasties were performed in 2003, and as the number of cases increases, so does the number of failed operations. Follow up surgeries to improve form or function are referred to as "revision" or "secondary" rhinoplasties. Michael Evan Sachs has perfected the art and science of revision rhinoplasty with thousands of cases, and readers will learn not only how to repair a failed procedure but also how to prevent one in the first place.
