Rhinophyma is a medical condition that causes benign abnormal tissue growth on the nose. Rhinophyma is thought to be an advanced form of Rosacea. When mild, it can be treated with oral and topical medications prescribed by your Dermatologist. However, if the tissue growth becomes more substantial, it can be disfiguring and even lead to nasal obstruction when severe. While there is no cure, removing this abnormal tissue can significantly improve the appearance of the nose.
