Caption

One of Gaspare Tagliacozzi's methods for replacing a missing nose. Here we see a patient wearing a harness that keeps his nasal area in contact with the incised skin of his arm for a long period of time. The idea is that the patient will grow a replacement nose from the arm skin. This method frequently resulted in infection and even death. Gaspare Tagliacozzi (1547-1599) was an Italian plastic surgeon. Although reconstructive surgery had been practiced for years, with documented procedures in ancient India, Tagliacozzi popularized the field of plastic surgery, and particularly rhinoplasty, in the 16th century. His book on plastic surgery, in which this illustration appears, is called De Curtorum Chirurgia Per Institionem (1597).
