Joseph Constantine Carpue (4 May 1764 - 30 January 1846) was an English skilled surgeon and popular lecturer of anatomy. He is known for performing the first rhinoplastic surgery in England, using a technique created in India several centuries earlier. The Indian rhinoplastic reconstruction involved using a flap of skin taken from the forehead, a procedure that became known throughout Europe as "Carpue's operation". In 1816 Carpue published details of the operation in An Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose from the Integument of the Forehead.
