Are There Any Surgeons in New Jersey Familiar with Shaving Small Visible Graft Edges on the Nose in Office?

I have a small point on my nose tip from the edge of a graft. I don't want surgery. I've heard of small visible edges can be shaved down with a hypodermic needle in office. Thank you for your feedback

Nasal Cartilage Graft Show

In general, cartilage grafts can show throughout the nasal tip. In some cases, it is a point. This cartilaginous point can be shaved down with a very small surgery procedure. This is not an office procedure. I highly recommend perform it under anesthesia at an accredited surgicenter.
