Rhinoplasty for Sebaceous Nose?
I am 50 with very oily skin since 13, worsening with time. I must wash my face approximately every 30 minutes; especially the nose and forehead. I've never seen a worse case.
I would like to have a Rhinoplasty to decrease the size of the bulb, but have heard that it is extremely difficult for a surgeon to obtain a thin refined tip on a sebaceous nose. Is this true? And if so, is there any way to safely eradicate the glands to decrease oil so I can have surgery? Like laser or that concentrated vitamin A oil on the net?
Accutane but wait.....
Combination laser and loop cautery can be used to sculpt the nose bulb
Rhinoplasty not skin surgery
You're correct-- this is a tougher problem
Rhinoplasty for Sebaceous Skin Nose
Thick and oily skin is tough, but improvements often possible
