Rhinophyma Reduction

What is rhinophyma?

Rhinophyma is a very treatable medical condition. It is defined as an over-growth of oil glands caused by Rosacea, which results in thickening of the skin.

How is rhinophyma reduction performed?

Rhinopyhma reduction is performed with a combination of electrocautery and laser resurfacing is used to smooth the texture and reshape the nose back to its normal state. This is a procedure that Dr. Nayak has performed with great success.

As long as you are in over-all good health, the rhinophyma procedure would be performed in our accredited, in-office surgical suite with IV sedation (much like what’s used for a colonoscopy or wisdom teeth removal).

Will the skin grow back?

There is a possibility that even after the procedure rhinophyma can return. The best way to prevent rhinophyma is to speak with a dermatologist and develop a good treatment regimen to treat rosacea.
