How Long Should One Wait After an Otoplasty to Use One's Ear Cartilage for Revision Rhinoplasty?

I had an otoplasty about a month and a half ago. More than a year has passed since my last rhinoplasty. How long before I can use my own ear cartilage for revision rhinoplasty?

Hopefully your otoplasty surgeon saved any cartilage removed during your ear surgery. If so, there  is no need to wait.
