Abstract

The history of plastic surgery is identified throughout the centuries with the history of rhinoplasty. The Indian Koomas first and later the Italian surgeons found valid solutions to the problems caused by partial loss of the nasal pyramid. However, the idea of rebuilding, with a single forehead flap, the tip and columella and providing at the same time a lining of skin for the newly formed nose goes back to the middle of the nine teenth century. The Italian Natale Petrali (1842) and the Germans Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach (1845) and Ernst Blasius (1848) contend for precedence in carrying out this important procedure still used today, which, barring postoperative contracture, represented a great advance in successfull total rhinoplasty.
