Editor-in-Chief, Rod J. Rohrich, MD announces the 2013 awards for the Best Papers in "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery." All winning articles can be read on http://prsjournal.com.
Awards will be presented to all winners at Plastic Surgery- The Meeting 2013 in San Diego, California.

The Editorial and Publishing staff scoured data for all manuscripts published in 2012 to determine the number of full text article views, number of PDF views, number of times sent by email and the number of times the article was added to a personal collection on PRSJournal.com. The data was further calculated to represent the average number of times per month those activities occurred. This average data was combined to create a score for each manuscript, placing them on equal footing, independent of publication month. The articles were sorted by score, and selected based on pre-existing categories. Authors were not allowed to win twice, even for different papers or different awards. The Editor-in-Chief, Co-Editor, current Editorial Board members and the ASPS Executive Committee were ineligible.

The role of the open approach in rhinoplasty Is to allow both the perfect anatomic exposure to the nasal tip and dorsum. It also provides the rhinoplasty surgeon with so many excellent options to reshape, to reconstruct, and to restore the nose in a natural manner without the use of palpable or visible tip or dorsal grafts. These suture techniques or invisible grafts allow for improved and more natural long-term results in modern primary rhinoplasty.

This lecture delineates the rationale, the approach, and the finesse in how to do a graduated approach to nasal tip reshaping using sutures and when alar contour grafts are needed to restore the nasal tip and alar rims in a natural manner. The goal is to use the native lower lateral cartilages and reshape them using a variety of suture techniques based upon a concise pre-operative nasal analysis.
