Among these witnesses, I pause on the Plymouth surgeon James Yonge, whose flap amputation technique – as he begrudgingly conceded – shared technical and conceptual ground with Tagliacozzi's use of skin flaps to rebuild the nose, lip, or ear. Distinguishing between the success of Yonge's method and the derogation of Tagliacozzi's can help to show the particular problems faced by surgeons sympathetic to Taliacotian rhinoplasty in early modern Britain.

So not only did their body bear outward signs of this bias, but their manners, especially instinctive behaviours, also followed a particular bent because their body had once been tempered, permanently cast, in a
