Polly Beak Deformity

The best recommendation is to consult with a board certified specialist who can properly evaluate the inside and outside of your nose and help you achieve the results you seek.  3-dimensional computer imaging can also help you visualize what you may look like afterwards and serve as an important communication tool with your surgeon.

Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Dear Sue2000, An in office examination would determine if you have a polly beak and if so what the cause of the polly beak is. Once a proper diagnosis is made then a surgical plan can be set. Most rhinoplasty experts have expertise in this particular area of revision surgery as we unfortunately see it often. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.

Rhinoplasty revision for fixing Polly beak deformity

A full set of photographs and an  in-person examination is required to make a determination about whether or not you have a Polly beak, and what is causing the polly beak. Residual cartilage or excess skin can be the causative agent. Look for a very busy rhinoplasty surgeon for best results.
