The major tip support mechanisms of the nose include: The intrinsic size, shape, and strength of the lower lateral cartilages. The attachments of the medial crura of lower lateral cartilages with the caudal septum. And the attachments of the lower lateral cartilages with the upper lateral cartilages (scroll region). Pollybeak deformity is a soft-tissue or cartilage fullness of the supratip that can be caused by inadequate tip support and decreased tip projection, inadequate reduction of dorsal hump, inadequate reduction of anterior septal angle/reduce additional anterior septal angle, excessive reduction of columella/columellar strut, or supratip dead space scar formation
