Rhinoplasty – Case 342
This young lady’s nose Has several things that are typically requested with a rhinoplasty.

She has had good improvement and her nose is more feminine. Perfection however cannot be obtained.

At the end of his illustrious career Dr. Jacques Joseph, often referred to as the father of modern rhinoplasty, was asked by one of his students how many of the 5000 rhinoplasties he had performed were perfect. After pausing for a long time, Dr. Joseph replied “five”.
