Rhinoplasty – Case 325
Rhinoplasty Case 325
This gentleman has moderately advanced rhinophyma. Although it is not as dramatic as many cases are, he wanted it improved so that his nose would appear normal again. With Rhinophyma rhinoplasty the cartilages and framework of the nose are not disturbed. Rather the overlying thick skin is paired down to a normal thickness again. This is truly sculpting the nose.
One can see that a scar has developed on the left side of his nasal tip, and indeed this is a common occurrence. This is why very early rhinophyma often should not undergo surgery until more advanced. Otherwise in these cases the minor improvement in the shape of the nose will be offset if scarring occurs
