SIR HAROLD GILLIES', CBE, FRCS (Figure 1) interest in the treatment of nasal deformities and other facial abnormalities led him to become one of the founding fathers of facial plastic surgery early in the 20th century. Born in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 1882, he was educated at Wanganui College, Wanganui, New Zealand, and Cambridge University, Cambridge, England. Gillies went on to St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, England, to study the specialty of otolaryngology. Although he had no formal training in plastic surgery, Gillies distinguished himself by treating vast numbers of facial injuries during World War I.
