Rhinophyma: An Annoying Problem with a Happy Ending

Rhinophyma is a condition found mostly on the nose and is a result of rosacea, adult acne, inflammation and sometimes heredity.  It is manifested by large, bulbous over growth of soft tissue on the nose.  It is a problem for patients aesthetically, socially and is sometimes causes pain or infection.  For advanced cases, the only treatment is surgery.  Dr. Niamtu treats this condition with a combination radiowave excision and CO2 laser resurfacing.  The diseased skin and glands are removed and the recovery is several weeks.  The images below show a patient recently operated by Dr. Niamtu before and after surgery.
