Italian surgeon known as the "father of plastic surgery." He became famous throughout Europe for his inventive operation, called Italian or tagliacotian rhinoplasty, which he performed on patients who lacked a complete nose either because of trauma or birth defect. The patient's nose was attached to a skin pedicle on the upper arm and held in place with a brace until it healed. Although he became quite famous, certain Church officials felt that such emphasis on physical appearance was blasphemy and persecuted him.
