This is one of my favorite procedures to perform – CO2 laser treatment for rhinophyma. As an expert rhinoplasty surgeon, performing cosmetic reshaping of the nose never gets old. This is a unique type of nose that has excessive glandular activity creating the classic look of rhinophyma. I used a CO2 laser to actually sculpt and reshape this patient’s nose – restoring what is essentially a normal look. These results demonstrate what typical rhinophyma patients look like after about 2-3 months of healing from the laser procedure. If you see his nose from the bottom view, you can also appreciate how rhinophyma surgery can actually open the nostrils in some cases. Let me know what you think of this rhinophyma surgical outcome!
