Supratip fullness after rhinoplasty

Many of the revision rhinoplasty patients I see in Houston have a full supra tip or polly beak deformity after rhinoplasty. This is usually due to two things. The first is insufficient removal of septal cartilage in the area and the other is accumulation of scar tissue in the region. Patients with thick skin and significant amounts of fat in the area will need to have this fat debulked or the skin thinned.

Revision rhinoplasty for a polly beak deformity addresses these issues by either taking the septal cartilage down further or removing the scar tissue. Thinning of the skin flap can also be performed at that time.
