After having ear cartilage grafts, about 1 year after surgery, I have got this painful tip which is hard and sort of looks like a white head. There is a dark ring around it. You can sort of see it in the picture but there may be some reflection. Can anybody tell me what it is and how I can get rid of it? Thanks

The cartilage grafts may need to be removed or reduced. This will depend upon the quality of the skin envelope. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
