A multidisciplinary working group of experts met in 2006 in order to establish a list of recommendations concerning the aesthetic and functional rhinoplasties. These experts tried to answer various practical problems while relying, on one hand, on a critical analysis of the literature, and on the other hand, on a consensus within the group. Six topics were approached: The management of the preoperative consultation, the surgical environment, the contra-indications, the materials used, the management of the post operative period, some particular pathological situations. This collective reflexion thus did not relate to the surgical techniques but to the methodology of treatment of patients who are candidates for rhinoplasty. It comes out clearly from this collective work that surgical indication can only be adressed after having clarified all the technical and psychological aspects. The use of computer graphics is recommended. Cartilage autograft are recommended as a priority.
