Rhinophyma is a disfiguring end-stage manifestation of acne rosacea. It is characterized by a painless hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands and connective tissues of the nose. Numerous surgical modalities-including scalpel surgery, dermabrasion, CO2 laser ablation, and electrocautery-have been reported with varying results. We describe our experience with using a microdebrider to treat 2 patients-a 65-year-old man and a 74-year-old man-who presented with rhinophyma. The instrument we used was the Medtronic Straightshot M4 Microdebrider. Using a low revolution speed, we easily excised the bulky superficial tissue. At higher revolution speeds with the use of a small shaver tip, we were able to achieve delicate contouring of the nasal tip and ala without causing scarring. Postoperatively, both patients exhibited an excellent cosmetic outcome and expressed a high degree of patient satisfaction. We conclude that the microdebrider is an excellent surgical tool for treating rhinophyma lesions. Its ease of use and its availability at most surgical centers makes it a favorable surgical option.
