Dissolving Cartilage Graft with Injections
As we said in another question you submitted today, your cartilage grafts cannot be dissolved with injections. The other problems withl your nose were also mentioned.
A cartilage graft can not be dissolve and only can be removed with surgery. If you are unhappy I sugget you contact your surgeon about this.
