Management of Severe Rhinophyma With Sculpting Surgical Decortication.

Aesthetic Plast Surg. 2013 Mar 1;

Authors: Husein-Elahmed H, Armijo-Lozano R

Rhinophyma, a progressive, disfiguring disease of the nose, is considered the final stage of acne rosacea. In its early stages, rhinophyma can be managed with medical treatment using isotretinoin or oral antibiotics (metronidazole). However, severe cases usually are refractory to medical approaches. Surgical therapies to treat these severe refractory cases have been described. This report describes a simple, safe, efficient, and cost-effective approach to the treatment of severe rhinophyma using a scalpel and the electroscalpel, instruments readily available in every operating room.
