Can the upper lateral cartilage in your nose grow back?

After a full rhinoplasty a few years ago I have had since had a couple of revisions to shave / cut down the upper cartilage in my nose to make it straighter as I was left with a hook shape where the bone had been shaved down but the cartilage was left. However I feel as though it is starting to swell or come back again and I am so frustrated. Why does this keep happening and why does the cartilage keep coming back to its normal shape a few days after being cut down?
