The Problem We Face: The “Compartmentalized” Conventional View of Facial/Nasal Anatomy

  • 286 Accesses

Abstract

Disciplines involving the understanding of structure, like rhinoplasty, facial surgery, and otolaryngology have achieved great strides by incorporating statistical evidence-based medicine (EBM) in the twentieth century, moving from an anecdotal art-form to a science-based series of algorithms. Despite these advances, a focus on specific therapeutic “maneuvers” and whether these tactics result in improvement has resulted in a general disregard for the probing into the structural origins of the physical causation of disorders. With an inquiry into the origins of these causative forces, disorders can be reversed or prevented much more efficiently and naturally than the statistically driven accumulated maneuvers that fuel our treatment algorithms.
