Anything I Can Do to Avoid Developing Polly Beak Deformity?
I am terrified of developing a pollybeak deformity. My surgeon is concerned because of my thick skin. He said earlier in his career he had a few cases, but he has since been suggesting taping for 8-12hrs/night for at least 1mo post-op and has had few cases. What are the odds of me developping one? By when would it have appeared? What other measures can I take to avoid this? What can he do if it does happen?
