[The role of Versajet in the surgical treatment of rhinophyma. Case report]

Ann Chir Plast Esthet. 2009 Feb;54(1):78-81

Authors: Nicolas J, Garmi R, Labbé D, Compère JF, Benateau H

Rhinophyma is an hypertrophy of the nose occurring primarily in men, from the age of 40, secondary to hyperplasia and fibrosis of sebaceous glands. This pathology is particularly unsightly and sometimes responsible of nasal obstruction. The treatment of this pathology is primarily surgical and the purpose of all techniques is to carry out a decortication. The authors describe one case of surgical treatment of rhinophyma by hydro-dissection using Versajet. After having presented the other possibilities of surgical technics for the treatment of this pathology, the authors compare the advantages and drawbacks of this new technique compared to those described in the international literature.
