Aesthetic Orthognathic Surgery and Rhinoplasty realistic, detailed orthopedic book
Aesthetic Orthognathic Surgery and Rhinoplasty presents orthognathic surgery from an aesthetic perspective, encompassing analysis, diagnosis, treatment, 3D virtual planning, and adjunctive procedures. The multidisciplinary nature of orthognathic surgery and its relationship to other branches of dentistry, as well as to ancillary surgical specialties, is discussed. Rhinoplasty is considered in all its aspects from an aesthetic standpoint.
The book is divided into three sections: Orthognathic surgery, The nose from an aesthetic perspective, and Analysis and diagnosis of the adult face.
The first section covers the principles of orthognathic surgery from a practical point of view including practical assessment protocols. All surgical techniques are described with updated literature. Bone grafting and all intraoral approaches are covered in detail through numerous case reports. The role of the maxillary anterior cranial base in orthognathic surgery is also illustrated through a series of cases. The use of alternative materials is discussed and includes ceramics, polymethyl methacrylate, acrylic resin and titanium. Finally a brief introduction to plastic surgery is given including craniofacial reconstruction after trauma, facial rejuvenation, and congenital anomalies.

The second section deals with the various aesthetic reconstruction options available from an orthognathic surgeon’s point of view. This includes ancillary procedures such as hair transplantation, chemical peeling, autologous skin grafting, and laser resurfacing. A variety of rhinoplasty techniques are briefly described ranging from the simple to the complex.
The last section deals with adult facial analysis and diagnosis. It provides a comprehensive compilation of clinical assessment protocols including computerized evaluation, psychological and mental factors, as well as a host of “soft signs” not commonly known but which prove to be very important in the treatment planning stages. This section also includes rare clinical situations where orthognathic surgery is contraindicated and the surgeon’s role in such cases.
