The external nose consists of bone, cartilage, and muscles, is supplied with blood vessels and nerves, and is covered externally with skin. — According to Dieffenbach, the important pioneer of rhinoplasty, “the nose [is] Man’s most paradoxical organ. It has its root above, its back in front, its wings below, and one likes best of all to poke it into places where it does not belong.”
