A giant blackhead extracted in an 85 y.o accompanied by her daughter.
A Dilated Pore of Winer, is essentially a giant blackhead. I extract this one today, and it leaves a dilated pore which will shrink to some degree, but likely won’t entirely go away. We plan to see her again in the near future, and if she doesn’t like the appearance, or if it tends to fill again, we can excise the enlarged pore, and place a couple stitches, so that she replaces the “hole” with a fine line scar.
A Goldmine of Blackhead & Whitehead Extractions
This sweet man has been bringing his wife in to see me, and I have been treating a large skin cancer on her face, with her recently getting Mohs skin cancer surgery. So, he is not directly a patient of mine, but I couldn’t help but notice that he has so many comedones on his nose. He tends to not pay much attention to himself, spending much of his energy and efforts making sure his wonderful wife is doing alright. She has more disabilities than he does, in fact he looks amazing for 90 years old!
He has fantastic blackheads and whiteheads to extract. As you may know, blackheads and whiteheads are also called open and closed comedones, and they are benign growths. In his case, he has rosacea and rhinophyma, which causes increased thickening of the skin of the nose, increased oil production in the area, and very large pore that fill with keratinous material creating huge blackheads and whiteheads.
These don’t need to be extracted, but certainly the appearance of the nose with improve greatly if they are.
