Asian rhinoplasty using rib cartilage. How long would it take to heal?

Recovery after rib cartilage harvest for Asian rhinoplasty
The incision for rib cartilage harvest is typically smaller and more medially placed than the incision for breast augmentation, and should not affect it. Nearly a third of my female patients have had breast augmentation, and the rib harvest is performed entirely below the breast, and does not interfere with the implant or breast at all.
