Every year, half a million people who are interested in improving the appearance of their noses seek consultation with facial plastic surgeons. Some are unhappy with the noses they were born with, and some with the way aging has changed their nose. For others, an injury may have distorted the nose, or the goal may be improved breathing. But one fact is clear: Nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, even a slight alteration can greatly improve one?s appearance. The definition of rhinoplasty is, literally, reshaping the nose. The etymology of the English word of rhinoplasty is derived from the greek prefix rhino meaning nose, and plasty defined as a surgical procedure for the repair or restoration of a body part. If you have wondered how nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, could improve your looks, self-confidence, or health, you need to know how rhinoplasty is performed and what you can expect. No book can allay all your concerns, but this one can provide answers for many of the questions you may have. Successful facial plastic surgery is a result of good rapport between patient and surgeon. Trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops in the consulting stages before surgery. Your surgeon can answer, and should be willing to, specific questions about your unique needs. Brenton B. Koch, MD, FACS, is a double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

This is one of the main reasons why a large number of surgical techniques have been described for treating such mucogingival lesions. These differ in not only how the incision is made and how the flap is prepared, but also - very importantly - in whether the mobilized soft tissue is moved to a different position and whether this is carried out by itself or in combination with other measures, such as a connective tissue graft. This volume presents three of the most commonly-used methods for covering singular gingival recession areas.
