Each racial and ethnic population has their own nasal characteristics, which need to be considered when planning rhinoplasty surgery. This book is probably the first of its kind in the Indian context highlighting the goal of maintaining ethnic identity congruent with the patient’s facial features and establishing Indian standards for gauging the success of the surgery. This is important as most of the rhinoplasty books have addressed these issues of the Caucasian or southeast Asian population and Caucasian normative standards of facial analysis. This book provides a broader understanding of ethnically specific features. It highlights the regional variations within India and their implications for rhinoplasty Surgery, thereby filling the void of lack of knowledge of the intricacies of surgery on Indian noses. It deals with important topics such as preoperative evaluations, determining factors such as thickness and texture of skin along with the various complications that may be encountered. It simplifies and facilitates learning with numerous pre-operative, intra-operative, and postoperative photographs. This book provides a systematic approach to Rhinoplasty surgery in Indian patients with an emphasis on addressing the functional aspects along with the cosmetic aspects.
This book is a must-have for trainees in rhinoplasty and plastic surgery courses along with facial plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, and aesthetic surgeons operating on the Indian population across the globe.
