Rhinophyma Surgery in South Florida


What is rhinophyma?

To understand what rhinophyma is, it's important to first have a basic understanding of rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic disease that affects the skin. The disease is characterized by redness, pimples, and, in advanced stages, thickened skin. When rosacea reaches this advanced stage, rhinophyma may develop. The most common characteristic of rhinophyma is an enlarged, bulbous, and red nose. Rhinophyma is associated with the sebaceous (oil producing) glands beneath the surface of the skin on the nose. The condition is more common in men than women.
