The ideal contour of the nasal bridge, when viewed from the side, is either straight (particularly in men) or straight with a slight upturn at the tip (particularly in women). If the area just above the tip (the supra tip region) projects slightly more than the tip, then the pollybeak deformity or supratip deformity occurs and the nose does not appear attractive in profile. This terminology is frequently used when referring to a nose that has already undergone a rhinoplasty and the supratip area remains too high, resulting in a convexity to the bridge and/or the appearance of a plunging tip. See below and find out how Rhinoplasty corrects a supratip nose deformity.
Do you have distinctly flared nostrils? Widely flaring nostrils can be repaired by a rhinoplasty maneuver called an alar base resection or anaplasty. But let’s make sure we are talking about the same thing because communication between the doctor and the patient is key to success.
