It is very important that you choose a great rhinoplasty surgeon who understands your skin type, concerns, and who will take the necessary steps required to prevent polly beak. These steps include providing good tip support, removing the proper amount of cartilage, and close monitoring on post-op swelling. Even with these precautions, thick skin can be a challenge. If you suspect that you are developing a polly beak deformity, make sure you see your surgeon. Occasionally, there are injections that can be used to help the swelling.
