A successful nose replacement using the Indian Method

Three illustrations showing the after effects of a successful Indian Method nose replacement. It is possible to see the healing wound on the forehead and around the new nose. It illustrates Carpue's Case 1; an officer in his Majesty's army whose treatment for a venereal complaint with mercury resulted in; '[...] the loss of the septum, all the anterior part of the cartilage, and, in truth, the whole front of the nose, a small portion of the alae, or sides of the nostrils, excepted. The nasal bones remained entire.' (Case 1, pg.83) This plate illustrates the 'Indian method' and healing process involved. Fig.1, 'Ninth Day: Nose became oedematous' (Case 1, pg. 89). Fig.2 (a), illustrates a small fissure in the newly united parts of the nose (Case 1, pg.89). Fig.3, 'In the present state of the nose, though there is neither bony or cartilaginous septum, yet the anterior or projecting part is solid, and has every appearance of a natural nose.' (Case 1, pg.90) Plate 4 from An Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring A Lost Nose from the integuments of the forehead, in the cases of two officers of His Majesty's army: to which are prefixed, historical and physiological remarks on the nasal operation; including descriptions of the Indian and Italian methods by J. C. Carpue (London, Longman, Hurst, Rees Orme and Brown, 1816). Inscribed: 'Plate. 1, London Published October 20th 1815 for the Proprietors by C. Turner, No50 Warren Street, Fitzroy Square, C. Turner fecit.

Original: engraving. 1816
