Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients present with rosacea of the cheeks, nose, forehead or even chin. Rosacea of the nose can appear in different forms and severities. This is important when considering rhinoplasty. The final form of rosacea of the nose or most severe is called rhinophyma. Rhinophyma is due to sebaceous glands multiplying which creates a knobby, warty appearing enlarged nose typically affecting the nasal tip and ala called sebaceous hyperplasia. It usually occurs in men and can get quite large. Rhinoplasty to treat rhinophyma can be performed by removing the effected skin and allowing this to resurface on its own. This is frequently done with a laser.
