Rhinophyma is a skin condition that effects the nose. The exact cause of this condition is still unknown but it is considered to be linked to a type of severe rosacea. Rhinophyma presents on the nose as raised and red and gives the nose a bumpy or bulbous appearance.
Rhinophyma only usually develops when rosacea has been left untreated for an extended period of time, however there are cases when Rhinophyma presents with the patient showing to visible signs of rosacea. The condition is most common in fair skinned males between the age of 50 – 70, there is no link to Rhinophyma being hereditary.
There is no cure for Rhinophyma but it can be treated, our preferred option is the syneron candela CO2RE fractional CO2 laser. This laser ablates down the thickened and bumpy skin and the plastic surgeon can look to return the nose to its original shape. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and roughly takes around 1 hour.
The patient will need to return the clinic two days later for their bandages to be changed, the initial healing process takes 10 – 14 days with any residual redness fading over time. Aftercare instructions will be provided and we strongly advise patients to follow as this will aid the healing process and provide the best cosmetic results. Patients need to be aware that this procedure does not cure the condition and it is possible the condition will present again in years to come, the treatment can be repeated.
A minimum of 72 hours is required to reschedule, 7 days to cancel an appointment. Please see our T’s & C’s for full details.
