And here we are, presenting the second edition of this book-manual which was originally published quite recently.
Time truly flies and has brought so many innovations and revisions in the field of esthetic medicine in general, but particularly in “medical rhinoplasty”. We are quite pleased about the success the book has had in sales and how much it has been appreciated by colleagues from all over the world. We are also pleased because it allows us to effect those changes that take place in every branch of medicine and even more so in esthetic medicine, making it of the utmost importance to revise and modify many aspects of a technique that has become famous and a part of the conversation of practically all the meetings held on the argument around the world. In these last few years medical rhinoplasty has become prominent in the overall view of clinical esthetic medicine, also because, considering the lower nasal mobility and solid osteo-cartilage support, injective techniques with even completely absorbable materials allow us to obtain
results that last much longer than in other areas of the face.
In this new edition the part dedicated to anatomy is obviously similar, even if there is greater attention given to Middle Eastern and Far Eastern and African features, emphasizing the important reciprocal differences from Caucasian features. Study of the nose has also been integrated and broadened with our experience of these past two years. But the part that has received the greatest revision, as is our custom, remains the practical part: the principal races have been tackled thoroughly with all of their differences. The techniques have been exemplified with numerous new practical clinical cases that make this second edition interesting also for the many colleagues who are already familiar with the first one. The revisions in medical rhinoplasty are numerous, starting with the materials, even safer and more reliable than before, and continuing with the injective options, enriched with the use of much safer and more effective cannulas.
We have also added new cases to post-surgical medical rhinoplasty where there are constantly more gold standard indications, simplifying the correction of minor post-operatory flaws and helping plastic surgeons in their everyday work.
As is our custom, we have tried to stress the practical details in order to enable our readers to repeat our techniques starting the very next day, without mysteries or small gaps that often make even the longest and most exhaustive explanations useless.
Of course, we remain at the disposal of any colleagues who wish to meet us at the principal world conferences to discuss and further examine this theme, which is of enormous importance for the esthetics of the entire face.
We wish you a happy new reading!
