What is a Polly Beak After Rhinoplasty and How is it Fixed?

Can you explain what a polly beak after rhinoplasty is and how it’s fixed?

Polly beak deformity occurs when the nasal bone component of the nasal dorsum is lower than the height of the cartilaginous component. This leaves a larger hump on the lower portion of the nose and causes the nose to look like a parrot’s beak from a side viewpoint. It is corrected by reducing the height of the cartilaginous component to the same height as the bony component.
