I had nasal vault reconstruction with homograft two weeks ago and can breath much better. Does the graft material shrink down and become softer over time? My nose is quite rigid and wider than I had expected, although I am not unhappy. I am just wondering what to expect over the next several months in regards to changes in size and consistency of the grafts.
