An accurate, quantitative method of measuring external nasal forms was described to evaluate the results of rhinoplasty, in which facial plaster models were measured with a highly accurate contact-type three-dimensional coordinate measurement apparatus. Furthermore, two original programs to identify facial landmarks objectively and to measure the curved surface of the external nasal form in order to evaluate cleft lip nasal deformities were described. These provided accurate and objective data for the facial landmarks and the curvature of nasal alae.
