What are your opinions on skin excision for soft-tissue polly beak?
Thanks for your question.
Polly beak deformity is typically an anatomic problem, less a problem of excess soft tissue.
Supratip debulking and reshaping is used commonly to fix a polly beak deformity. If you have problem with excess skin, resection done properly can yield an acceptable scar. If the scar is suboptimal, laser, dermabrasion, or microneedling can be performed to optimize it.
I hope this was helpful.
