This is a short book written mainly for doctors who have worked with the author. It includes cosmetic surgery of the nose and ear and technic for the removal of wrinkles and folds from the face. The rasp is used to remove bony nasal humps, and ivory implants are recommended for saddle nose. The author has listed the deformities that he believes are the most commonly encountered, such as small hump nose, large hump nose, wide nose, saddle nose, alar deformities, large ears, prominent ears, and wrinkles of the face. For each of these there is a description of the author's technic of operation, and credit is given other surgeons when their methods are used. The author has not published any "before and after" photographs because he believes they are of no particular use to the reader.
