I understand this is a bigger risk than having them absorbed. After a revision, let's say a year later, can you touch, pull and play with your nose or should you always be more cautions for like if you had cartilage used? Thanks!
In Revision Rhinoplasty, is Cartilage That Moves After the Operation a Big Risk? Any Stats?

Risk of Cartilage Grafts Moving after Revision Rhinoplasty
There is little risk of cartilage grafts moving after a revision rhinoplasty especially if the procedure is done using the open technique where the grafts can be sutured and secured. One year after surgery the cartilage grafts will be incorporated into the surrounding tissue and almost impossible to shift.
