Nachdruck  des klassischen Werkes der plastischen Chirurgie von Jacques Joseph (1865-1934), der die Abteilung für Gesichtsplastik der HNO-Klinik der Charité leitete und bereits 1898 mit einer Schrift über Rhinomiosis in der Berl. Klin. Wschr. an die Öffentlichkeit trat (vgl. Garrison/Morton 5755.3). - Originalgetreuer Nachdruck  <<Despite the North American priority, the widespread recognition and success of cosmetic nasal surgery is due largely to the Berlin surgeon Jacques Joseph. his many contributions to this difficult field of plastic surgery are brought together in his comprehensive monograph, published in 1931" (Wallace). >>Maßgeblich hat er die plastische Chirurgie als eigenständiges medizinisches Fachgebiet gefördert. Zahlreiche Operationsmethoden (z. B. zur Ohren- und Nasenkorrektur sowie Gesichtshautraffung, bei Schulterluxation) und chirurgische Instrumente, vor allem plastische Nasenoperationen (Plastikmesser, Nasenklammer- und säge) usw., ferner Anastomosenklemme für 'gedeckte' Enterotomie usw. wurden von J. entwickelt und nach ihm benannt" (NDB). - Garrison/Morton 5763.01

Jacques Joseph ( 1865 – 1934) , German plastic surgeon. 

Born Jakob Lewin Joseph in Königsberg, Prussia, he was the third child of Rabbi Israel Joseph and his wife Sara. He was an innovator in modern plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery who developed methods for aesthetic plastic surgery, including cosmetic rhinoplasty. He noted that cosmetic surgery, while not a physical necessity, was worth the risks to a person's health because of its positive impact on their spirit, personality, and role in the world. He was a pioneer of rhinoplasty, which he developed and performed on many of Berlin's Jewish community (to which he also belonged).

From 1885 to 1889, he was a student of medicine at the Friedrich Wilhelm University in Berlin. In 1892 he joined the staff of the Berlin University Clinic for Orthopaedic Surgery. In the same year he married his wife, Leonore. In 1904, Jacques Joseph published his first report on the simultaneous, intranasal correction of a hump nose with the correction of the front nasal septum. In 1916, he was appointed head of the newly founded Department of Facial Plastic Surgery at the Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic at the Charité by the Prussian Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs. 

In 1919, he was appointed professor despite not having habilitated and was awarded the Iron Cross. In 1922, Joseph set up his own practice where he dedicated himself to work in several fields of plastic surgery. A report on Jacques Joseph was published by "raving reporter" Egon Erwin Kisch. In 1928 and 1929 the first two sections of Jacques Joseph‘s book on ‘Nasal plastic surgery’ were published at Curt Kabitzsch Publishers, Würzburg and Leipzig. In 1931 the expanded final version of his book on ‘Nasal Plastic Surgery and Other Facial Reconstructive Procedures, With an Appendix on Reconstructive Breast Surgery and Some Other Procedures in the Area of External Plastic Surgery. An Atlas and Text Book.‘ was published. This book is called a milestone in plastic surgery. It was reprinted in 1975 by Willem A Meeuws in Oxford. 

On 12 February 1934, Jacques Joseph died of a heart attack in the hallway of his house in Berlin on his way to his practice. (Wikipedia)
