Rhinophyma is a skin condition in which the patient develops a large, red, bumpy or bulbous nose. The exact cause for its development is not known, but it is considered a severe subtype of rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder that affects many people. Typical treatment for rosacea includes oral and topical solutions. When these no longer work, or the condition advances, other treatments are warranted. Dr. Eric Cerrati offers different forms of rhinophyma treatment at his South Jordan and Salt Lake City offices.

Common symptoms of severe rhinophyma include thickening skin, enlarged pores, a red skin tone, bulbous shaped nasal tissue and a gradual growth of swollen, visible blood vessels and oil glands that produce a waxy, rough texture on the nose. Many rosacea patients struggle with self-confidence and embarrassment due to their appearance. Patients who develop rhinophyma can be severely affected because of its obvious presentation on the face that is almost impossible to hide.

Advanced Treatment for Severe Rosacea Cases

Dr. Eric Cerrati offers advanced treatment methods for these severe rosacea patients. They may include laser surgery, electrosurgery or traditional surgery using a scalpel and dermabrasion. These procedures seek to make cosmetic improvements by:

  • Removing the overgrowth of waxy tissue
  • Reducing enlarged blood vessels
  • Reshaping nasal disfigurement
  • Restoring a natural appearance to the nose

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!

Dr. Cerrati is AMAZING at what he does! He is very professional, personable, and always makes sure you are comfortable during your procedures. After seeing 3 other physicians and having procedures done to help open my nasal passages, Dr. Cerrati came up with a different solution that actually worked. He is very meticulous and precise with all of his work and my facial injections were nearly painless. He does great work, I highly recommend!

Dr. Cerrati, Nani and the entire staff made my day today! I put my wallet on the hood of my car and drove off with it there on my way to my appointment this morning. By the time I realized what I had done my wallet was long gone. I ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment (which I absolutely hate) and the staff was nothing but understanding and so so nice when I told them what happened. It was my first experience in the office but absolutely not my last! Not only am I impressed with the way I was treated but they did an amazing job!! My appointment was short and sweet with a job well done and I couldn't help but leave with happy tears in my eyes. Kind people are the best!!!
