About the book

The book will cover six broad topics namely: Soft tissue and bony anatomy in Rhinoplasty, Patient assessment in rhinoplasty, Crooked or twisted nose in rhinoplasty, Concepts of functional reconstructive nasal surgery, and Addressing the nasal valve in rhinoplasty, and Revision rhinoplasty. There is increasing demand for facial plastic surgery with more awareness and advancements in surgical procedures and their outcomes. Many patients who seek surgery for their nasal aesthetics also have complaints of nasal obstruction and sometimes snoring. Severe gross septal deviations present surgical challenges for the operating surgeon. In functional rhinoplasty, the role of a spreader graft, columellar extension graft, shield graft, only conchal graft, nasal valve suture suspension, and flaring sutures has been advocated by numerous authors. General ENT surgeons, rhinologists, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, postgraduates, researchers, trainees, and general practitioners with a special interest in rhinoplasty will find this book useful and interesting.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
