Rhinoplasty refers to the plastic surgical procedure in which the structure of the nose is altered. The objectives are miscellaneous: adding or removing bone or cartilage, tissue grafts from other body parts, or implanting synthetic material. The aim is form, function and aesthetics.
Karin Spijker illustrated all aspects of this surgical procedure for Advanced Caucasian and Mediterranean Rhinoplasty written by P.J.F.M Lohuis.
“I know of no other book that considers and describes in such exceptional detail about topics such as the rhinoplasty learning curve, the Utrecht questionnaire, and special problems. When I reviewed the references, I can see that the author has done an extensive amount of reading and collated a tremendous amount of valuable information into the book. It has been clearly, concisely and beautifully presented, not just in the form of the photographs, diagrams and graphics, but in its intellectual integrity and clarity. It is one of the most valuable rhinoplasty textbooks that I have had the privilege to read.”
