Treatment of rhinophyma with the Versajet Hydrosurgery System and autologous cell suspension (ReCELL®): A case report

J Cosmet Laser Ther. 2018 Apr;20(2):114-116. doi: 10.1080/14764172.2017.1368668. Epub 2017 Nov 7.


This is a case report of a 63-year-old male patient who presented with rhinophyma of 17 years duration. Several medical treatments were applied previously, with no response or poor improvement. We present our experience by combining the Versajet™ Hydrosurgery System and ReCELL® in a heavy smoker patient, which led to a good aesthetic outcome. With the combined technique, we did not encounter any difficulties either within the operation or in the follow-up period. We obtained less complications and faster wound healing, which in return led to higher patient satisfaction.
