Rhinoplasty and Rib graft survival
Unless there was a problem with infection or the skin healing, autologous cartilage survival shouldn't be a problem. If there is cartilage absorption, then the shape of the nose would change on the outside.
I recommend you ask your own surgeon regarding the cartilage and keep all follow-up appointments to make sure you stay on track through the healing process. Safety comes first.
