<<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

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)
