Depending on the particular procedures performed, the rhinophyma treatment may take place in an outpatient facility or in the office setting.
Rhinophyma treatments may be performed with a local anesthetic, which may be combined with sedation.
Rhinophyma treatments typically take about one hour to perform.
Combined resurfacing techniques for the treatment of rhinophyma typically have a ten to fourteen day recovery period. During this time, patients may experience some swelling or redness of the skin. Ointment is worn continuously during this time.
