The experiences gained in about 5,000 personal consecutive rhinoplasties are outlined. Stress is laid on the psychologic factor especially in type-changing operations. The difficulties encountered in surgery of the tip, as compared to the relative ease of managing the bony pyramid, are pointed out. The complications of parrot's (polly) beak deformity and the skeleton (pinched) tip are discussed in detail.
