I had 1 rhinoplasty and 1 revision 15 years ago. I have a slight pollybeak and am wondering if it's too late for steroid injections. If so, is there anything else, besides more surgery, that can reduce swelling at this point? It seems like my nose has gotten more swollen in the past year...is this possible?

Pollybeak after Primary and Revision Rhinoplasty
Steroids may help but they are more effective when injected shortly after surgery. If you have a true pollybeak you probably will need another revision procedure to increase your tip projection and/or reduce the fullness above your tip.
