The book offers a thorough description of rhinoplasty techniques for patients from the Mediterranean area. Noses come in different shapes and colors, depending on the various biotypes of the different geographic regions. This represents a topical issue for rhinoplasty surgeons, since different nasal morphologies imply different anatomic conditions. Moreover, beauty ideal varies from one region to the other, and those differences need to be taken into consideration. Based on these premises, the ethnic rhinoplasty is becoming more and more important among facial plastic surgeons. In order to broaden the understanding of anatomo-functional and cultural or cosmetic aspects specific to the Mediterranean nasal biotype, the book collects and discusses the experiences of surgeons operating on patients from the various regions of the Mediterranean area. Mediterranean Rhinoplasty represents a valuable resource not only for surgeons who are already experts in facial plastic surgery, but also for young otorhinolaryngologists, plastic surgeons and maxillofacial surgeons.
