A seventy-three-year-old man presented with a complaint of enlarged nose. The diagnosis was made as rhinophyma and the mass was excised under local anesthesia. The involved tissues including the columellar, alar, and dorsal nasal skin were removed by preserving the perichondrium and periosteum. A full-thickness skin graft was obtained from the supraclavicular region and transferred to the defect area with a tie-over dressing. An acceptable texture and color adaptation of the skin graft was obtained at the end of one-year follow-up period.
