Rhinophyma is a subtype of severe rosacea. It is a condition that causes the nose to appear large and bulbous. Sufferers of rhinophyma typically feel embarrassed by the size and shape of their nose. However, there are effective treatments available for rhinophyma when you trust your care to the Ederra Bella team and Dr. Myla Bennett. Our practice provides excellence in consultation for patients in Johns Creek. Out-of-town visitors can access treatment recommendations for rhinophyma via a virtual consultation.
Common among men, especially those in the 50 to 70 age range, rhinophyma is characterized as inflammation of the skin around the nose. Over 60 million Americans suffer from rosacea and most never seek effective treatment for the condition. If you have developed the symptoms of rhinophyma and need a consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Myla Bennett is available in Johns Creek to offer her expertise.
Subtypes of Rosacea
It is possible for a patient to suffer from more than one subtype of rosacea. Dr. Myla Bennett will provide a full consultation to assess your needs and provide individualized treatment options. Contrary to outdated research into rosacea subtypes, these conditions are not directly linked to the consumption of alcohol. To date, there is no established cause for rhinophyma, although there are effective treatments available from specialists such as Dr. Myla Bennett.
Dr. Myla Bennett may opt for medicinal treatment of rhinophyma. Alternatively, patients may be offered the opportunity to undergo surgical procedures to repair damage to the skin. How your treatment is approached will depend on the results of a consultation with your specialist at Ederra Bella.
