Rhinophyma can be a very troubling concern for those affected and can carry a strongly negative psychological impact due to the obvious impact on one’s personal appearance. Rhinophyma itself is typically characterised by prominent pores, papules and a fibrous thickening of the skin on the nose. It is highly associated with the common skin condition rosacea and occurs most often in men.
Bulbous rhinophyma excision is performed by Dr. Julie Khanna and can have a dramatically positive impact on an individual’s personal appearance and ultimately their self–esteem. The procedure is normally performed under local or general anaesthetic. The excess skin is excised to remove the skin growth and is then reshaped to reveal a more aesthetically pleasing nasal shape.
