Rhinophyma is a skin condition that is related to rosacea and impacts the nose. This complication of severe rosacea can cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge, resulting in a swollen, reddish and bumpy appearance to the skin on the nose. If rhinophyma is not treated, the nose can become bulbous in shape, and the condition can impact breathing and nasal function. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer rhinophyma treatment at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

Rhinophyma treatment can include topical creams and medications that are designed to control rosacea. Unfortunately, these treatments are not always effective, and there can still be cosmetic consequences to nose appearance and shape. Cosmetic rhinophyma treatment can include skin therapies that control excess skin growth and inflammation. These include dermabrasion, laser therapy and skin or growth removal in non-invasive procedures to improve the appearance of the nose.

Rhinophyma Surgery or Rhinoplasty

In severe cases of rhinophyma, the nose can become very bulbous and distorted in shape. The skin can be red and bumpy, creating an unattractive nose appearance. When non-surgical treatments are ineffective, rhinophyma surgery may be considered to improve the appearance of the skin and nose cosmetically.

Dr. Munique Maia is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can perform rhinophyma surgery to reshape the nose and remove thick, bumpy skin. While surgery cannot cure rosacea or rhinophyma, it can improve the appearance of the nose and help increase the self-confidence of the patient.

If you suffer from rosacea and rhinophyma, treatment is available to improve the appearance of your nose. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery to schedule a rhinophyma treatment and surgery consultation with Dr. Maia. We can book your appointment at our clinic in the Washington, DC area to discuss treatment or nose job surgery for your rhinophyma.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
