This gentleman came to us with concerns regarding disfigurement of his nose from rhinophyma. This is a disease of overgrown sebaceous glands, and the process typically accompanies another skin condition called rosacea. The growth of the nose started later in life and progressed somewhat rapidly over the course of several years. He underwent aggressive dermabrasion surgery of the nose and the cheeks to a lesser extent. He elected to achieve further refinement with erbium YAG laser and Kenalog/5-FU injections. He has received significant positive feedback from his friends / family and jokingly asked them why they didn’t tell him he needed to do it sooner. Our patient feels that the procedure has significantly improved his confidence and outlook on life. His photos here depict him at 1.5 years following his initial surgical treatment.
