Polly beak deformity is one of the most common complications that can result from rhinoplasty surgery. Steroid injections are less effective the further you get from the original date of your surgery. You may consider a revision rhinoplasty at some point to correct the polly beak deformity which could include removing and/or adding cartilage to various parts of your nose in order to restore balance and a more aesthetically pleasing profile.
Hi, I'm not convinced steroid injection will help you. Addressing the anterior septal angle, the mid-third depression/over-resection and your high radix will give you a more aesthetic nose. This involves revision surgery I'm afraid, no role for steroids here.

Polly Beak (or Polly Tip) Deformity
Depending on the source for the Polly Beak, steroid injections can help. I would search for an expert revision rhinoplasty surgeon with years of experience. And please remember to use your sunscreen on your nose, as the sun's rays can contribute (and even cause) the problem.
Hello. Polly beak deformity can be a result of scar tissue formation, unresected anterior septal cartilage (the part at the very front top of your septum) , or loss of rotation. There are treatment options for all of these, but the best way to determine is to see your surgeon for a good in office exam to determine the cause of your deformity. Take care.
Pollybeak Deformity after 1 year Rhinoplasty
Thanks for your question. Sometimes soft tissue polybeak issues which result from scar tissue or fibrous tissue will respond to Kenlog injections, even after one year or more from surgery. If this fullness in your supratip dorsum is from another reason, i.e. Tip Cartilage fullness, Cartilage grafts etc, then steroid injections will offer no significant improvement and you will likely need surgery. Consult with an experienced Facial Plastic Surgeon with expertise in revision rhinoplasty for an opinion. The AAFPRS website may help you locate a specialist in your area. Best of luck.
