Pollybeak – San Diego Parrot Beak Rhinoplasty

Published on October 18, 2013

PollybeakDoes your nose make you feel self-conscious in social situations? When scar tissue is the cause of a parrot-like nose, or pollybeak deformity, this is called a soft tissue pollybeak. It can be corrected using rhinoplasty.

During primary open rhinoplasty, the cosmetic surgeon must often redrape the skin of the nose. A soft tissue pollybeak can be caused when surgeons redrape this nasal skin incorrectly, creating an underlying area in which scar tissue forms.

In cases where primary rhinoplasty has failed, surgeons must perform revision rhinoplasty to correct the resulting issues. To have your pollybeak corrected, pay a visit to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Mofid, a skilled medical professional in the San Diego area.
