Objectif: The authors developed an original and simple method of evaluation of the aesthetic lines of the nose adapted to the harmony of the face. Method: Initially based on their experience, the authors propose an evaluation of the nose in 2 stages and 5 sequencies based on the construction of single circuit lines according to various incidences. They checked thereafter the validity of this method on the operative project and on the appreciation of the results of the rhinoplasties. Results: Controlled on several types of faces, the method suggested by the authors proved to be reliable, simple, reproducible. Conclusion: The authors proposed a method of evaluation of the aesthetic lines of the nose integrated to the harmony of the face. This method relies on the construction, in 5 stages, of single circuit lines not requiring any particular material. The artistic method of evaluation of the nose proposed by the authors is very simple. Rapid and immediately usable, it makes it possible to schedule a rhinoplasty in a few minutes. The evaluation of the aesthetic results of the rhinoplasties is also very simple and reproducible. It has moreover the merit to propose a model of teaching making it possible to the rhinoplastician to criticize his results and thus to progress in its technical training and its operational indications.
