The challenge of creating aesthetic, harmonious, and lasting results in rhinoplasty surgery has long remained an ambitious endeavor fraught with exceptional difficulty. In a unique and thoughtful approach, Dr Godin and colleagues have created Rhinoplasty: Cases and Techniques. The book is divided into the 5 general sections of preparation, operative techniques, postoperative care, complications, and case examples. Nearly 1000 images are used to illustrate the conceptual and technical principles offered by the 40 contributing surgeons. The first 4 sections are an elegant review of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative treatment of the rhinoplasty patient, while the final section presents 69 individual case examples, in their entirety, and comprises most of the book. The breadth of the cases presented offers an exceptionally wide view of rhinoplasty surgery, with each case seen through the eyes of a master surgeon. Furthermore, each case presented offers a detailed description of patient history, clinical analysis, outlined surgical steps, key operative images, and illustrations. Special attention has been dedicated to indexing and cross-referencing for navigational ease. Additional access to an online video library is also available for the review of various rhinoplasty techniques and approaches. The end result is a book that is well written and organized for the novice surgeon but sophisticated and refined for the experienced surgeon as well.
