WHY THIS BOOK IS INDISPENSABLE TO THE NASAL/FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION SURGEON
Defects vary. Training and experience—no matter how good—do not provide adequate solutions to every potential defect or problem you may encounter.
The Normal, however, never changes. It is the perpetual goal of aesthetic reconstruction.
In the quest to achieve an aesthetically-pleasing result, the path to restoring The Normal isn't obvious, nor is it easily navigated. This is the plight of the reconstructive surgeon.
So, how can we set ourselves up to achieve consistently favorable results when we're presented with consistently challenging and variable defects?
THE ANSWER = PRINCIPLES
You need principles—applicable to every defect—to guide your decisions about timing, materials, methods, and stages.
Success in aesthetic nasal reconstruction is earned through careful planning and deliberate choices, not through dependence on any one surgical maneuver.
Planning is paramount, and the best plans are derived from understanding and practicing the tried-and-true principles outlined in Frederick J. Menick, M.D.'s Aesthetic Nasal Reconstruction: Principles and Practice.
Frederick J. Menick M.D. is known as the world's foremost expert in nasal reconstruction.
Described by his peers as the finest nose-maker in the history of medicine, Dr. Fred Menick has developed a pioneering approach to aesthetic nasal reconstruction, informed by 35 years of clinical practice and reinforced by time-tested principles.

I can’t say enough good things about your book—the illustrations, the cases, the writing, everything.
There are no words that can adequately express my profound admiration for what you have done and the effort you made in creating this text. It is a contribution that will honor you and your work for many, many years to come. I can only congratulate you on a superb record of a wide variety of reconstructive problems that NO ONE else has or can match.
Mark B. Constantian, M.D., F.A.C.S. (excerpt from his review in PRS journal)
In my opinion, Dr. Menick’s new book will be the unimpeachable standard reference work until the day when some young surgeon comes along who is as innovative, creative, determined, and technically skilled as Dr. Menick, which may be a long time.
Surgeons who close facial defects from any cause will find this new reference work invaluable.
Prof. Dr.med. Dr.hc Wolfgang Gubisch
It is a great pleasure for me to have access to these unique books, including all of the concepts and tricks that enable Dr. Menick to achieve such outstanding results. He teaches the reader to perform something totally different from merely just replacing tissue, which makes all the difference.
I am deeply convinced that this text is not only Dr. Menick's magnum opus but also the Bible for all who are working in this field.
