Why is Aesthetic Nasal Reconstruction: Principles and Practice not published by a major medical publisher?
From Dr. Menick:
Several years ago, I decided to write a new book on aesthetic nasal reconstruction, informed by my 35 years of experience. The book would detail and extensively illustrate my up-to-date approach — the foundations of which are described in my previously published work, now amplified with my latest aesthetic principles and techniques.
Failing to appreciate the breadth of injuries and the expansive scope of techniques that must be applied to address them, major medical publishers offered me a contract for a single volume text. I maintained that a comprehensive book on this subject would require two volumes and thousands of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative photographs.
The publishers refused to accommodate two volumes, stating that, commercially speaking, "Surgeons only want a 5-minute video." This comment, I believe, severely underestimates the needs and interests of surgeons, our field, and — ultimately — our patients.
For that reason, I decided to write the book exactly as I envisioned without the support of a major medical publisher. The result is Aesthetic Nasal Reconstruction: Principles and Practice, a unique and complete resource for surgeons interested in nasal reconstruction.
Is Dr. Menick offering live, in-person instruction of his nasal reconstruction techniques?
Yes, Dr. Menick is a frequently invited speaker and has lectured at medical society meetings, symposiums, and plastic surgery training programs in more than 27 countries.

Do you ship outside of the United States?
Yes! We appreciate the enormous amount of interest we've received from surgeons across the globe and want to make the book as widely available as possible.
