Nasal Anatomy and Rhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty is surgery on the human nose to improve function or cosmetic appearance. Rhino is Latin for nose and Plasty is Greek for forming. Rhinoplasty can reduce the size of the nose, or alter the tip. The angle between the nose and upper lip can also be altered. It can also restore the function if there have been any injuries or abnormalities.

This set of images were produced for an international surgeon, with the view of using them to illustrate a medical paper that showed an innovative approach to a specific rhinoplasty surgery technique. The illustrations of the surgical stages were all created digitally and the surgeon wanted them to include the base detail of the skull.

Although Joanna is a UK based medical artist she worked closely with this surgeon based in Iran, in order to complete the illustrations for his medical paper. Joanna works to accomodate any differences in time zones.

This illustration is showing the classic anatomy of the nose. The blue is the cartilage of the nose, against the skull.
