Rhinophyma is a condition that causes a red, bulbous, and bumpy nose. Overactive oil producing glands or sebaceous glands cause Rhinophyma.
In most cases, Dr. Chernoff uses a surgical CO2 Laser to remove the overgrowth of oil glands that removes the Rhinophyma. The results are immediate and permanent. Patients who have been treated for Rhinophyma are extremely happy with their results.
Patients with Rhinophyma can become depressed. In some cases, if Rhinophyma is left untreated, the growth can become disfiguring. Rhinophyma has been referred to as an alcoholic’s nose, however, Rhinophyma is not associated with alcoholism. The reason the oil glands create Rhinophyma is unknown.
