I had revision rhinoplasty 4 weeks ago. Doctor added a shield graft to increase projection, took down supratip slightly, and straightened septum. Everything is excellent except for a pollybeak on profile view. Closer to the tip the abnormality is soft, from the bridge to the supratip it is hard and has a noticeable transition. Should I be worried? Is this induration? I thought swelling would be soft. I am very worried about my profile now. Thank you for replies.
Is It Too Soon to Be Worrying About Pollybeak?

Pollybeak 4 Weeks after Revision Rhinoplasty
If the supratip fullness is soft just 4 weeks after your revision rhinoplasty this is probably secondary to swelling which will improve. Be patient and discuss this with your surgeon.
Most early polly beaks are related to swelling and /or scar tissue formation - see your PS and discuss steroid injection to supratip
