Nobody enjoys feeling self-conscious about their nose. Rhinoplasty is a popular form of corrective surgery for many nasal issues, including a pollybeak deformity. When pollybeak, or parrot beak, happens because of a cartilage-related problem, it’s called a cartilaginous pollybeak.

The lower lateral cartilages, or LLCs, are the two parts of the nose that make the tip look the way it does. When these LLCs are made too small, there isn’t enough support for the tip, and it droops. This creates the pollybeak deformity.
