There is a long list of reasons for a person to choose reconstructive rhinoplasty. Some of the common reasons are a failed primary rhinoplasty, congenital defects, and trauma. Reconstructive rhinoplasty aims to either restore function of the nose or enhance the appearance of the nose in a manner more in line with the patient’s original goals.
One of the common reconstructive rhinoplasty concerns is a pollybeak deformity. Pollybeak deformity is often the result of a poorly performed primary rhinoplasty. The pollybeak deformity appears as a “parrot beak” shape of the nose. The condition is treated by adding cartilage to rebuild the bridge of the nose. This cartilage is typically grated from the ribs in this procedure. Consult with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler to make an informed decision about your nose concerns.
