Why Does Ear Cartilage Added to Bridge Look Narrow?
My Doctor added cartilage from my ear to build up the bridge, which was too low from a surgery years ago. It's too straight, and much narrower than the rest of my bridge, not natural. Wouldn't ear cartilage always be thin? He didn't want to go back and soften it.
Ear cartilage isn't nasal cartilage
