Rhinophyma Reduction Little Rock

Little Rock Oculoplastic & Facial Cosmetic Surgeon


Rhinophyma is a condition that is fairly common, particularly in adult men. It causes development of a large, bulbous, ruddy nose. It is characterized by prominent pores and fibrous thickening of the nose.

Sometimes papules will develop creating further irregularity. It is a slowly progressive condition due to hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands of the tip of the nose.

Causes of Rhinophyma

Alcoholism is mistakenly attributed as a cause of this disease. Therefore, there is a lot of stigma that can go along with this condition. Actually, rhinophyma is frequently familial and most often associated with a condition called rosacea. Although prevention by controlling your rosacea may be the best treatment, once the rhinophyma develops, the most effective options for treatment are surgical. Surgical options, to name a few, include dermabrasion, CO2 laser, paring the tissue away which may include skin grafting in rare cases. Usually the surface of the nose can heal back just as well or as smoothly without a skin graft. Sometimes patients with the most severe rhinophyma will need to have staged or multiple treatments.
