This edition is more compact, more graphic and more practical than the first. The deformities are better classified and their correction described as problems of everyday practice. The author recognizes the fact that nasal deformities usually involve more than one aspect of the nose and that it is necessary to combine several procedures in order to regain the normal. His chapter on typical and distinctive operations therefore in the first part of the book leads the way to a better understanding of the classified corrections that are taken up in the succeeding chapters. Several of the author's procedures differ somewhat from the Joseph technic, which most rhinoplastic surgeons have adopted, but all of them are based on sound surgical principles. The rationale of his technic is clearly explained and numerous illustrations bring home forcibly the important details. His description of the costal cartilage implant for saddle nose is still preeminent.
