Is There Something About Rib Cartilage That Makes the Nose Swell a Lot when It is Used?

Or is it just a coincidence that the nose swells a lot when it is used, since it is often used in open, revision rhinoplasties which result in a lot of swelling anyway?
Swelling after Placement of Rib Cartilage
Rib cartilage is typically used in extensive augmentation rhinoplasty and difficult revision surgery. Sara, you are correct when suggesting the swelling is secondary to the procedure, not the graft material.
