Rhinophyma is a condition that affects the nose, causing it to become swollen and bulbous in appearance. This condition can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, excessive alcohol consumption, and untreated rosacea. While it is most commonly associated with men, it can affect anyone regardless of gender or age.
Many people who suffer from rhinophyma may feel self-conscious about their appearance, which can negatively impact their self-esteem and quality of life. But fortunately, surgery can effectively reduce the size and shape of the nose and restore a more normal appearance.
At Phoenix Surgical Dermatology Group, Dr. Ramin Fathi MD is highly skilled in performing rhinophyma surgery which can help patients achieve a more balanced and attractive nose shape. “Rhinophyma is a common condition that can significantly impact a person’s self-esteem, but with the right surgical approach and techniques, we can achieve a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the nose,” says Dr. Ramin Fathi MD.
The benefits of rhinophyma surgery can be both cosmetic and functional. For one, the surgery can help to reshape the nose, reducing its size and correcting any asymmetry. Additionally, the surgery can help to improve breathing by removing any obstructions or narrowing of the nasal passages.
The surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, and is typically done under local anesthesia. The recovery time varies depending on the individual case, but in most cases, the patient can return to normal activities within a week or two. The final results of the surgery may take several months to be fully visible, as the nose may continue to swell and change shape for a period of time after the surgery.
In a study published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery, it was found that rhinophyma surgery leads to an improvement in both the patient’s appearance and their quality of life. Another study published in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery found that patients who underwent rhinophyma surgery had improved nasal function and a high degree of patient satisfaction.
