Does MUA Work on Cartilage After 4 Years?

I had a purely cosmetic rhinoplasty 4 years ago although the right side of my cartilage has back to it's original position, will MUA(manipulation under anaesthetic) work?

Dear Oman,

 

Without photos and physical examination it is difficult to assess what you are trying to accomplish exactly.

 

It seems you are trying to shy away from a revision that could be your best bet in terms of achieving commendable results.

 

Best of luck to you and thank you for your inquiry.

I would be able to give you a better answer with a photo. It's not likely that MUA will be the best solution. It sounds like a revision is in order and will give you best result.
