I was told I would need to take ear cartilage to help with my rhinoplasty revision surgery. But how will this affect my ear?

In revision rhinoplasty procedures, there may be a paucity of cartilage within the nasal septum. Therefore, another source for cartilage is needed. Often, I use ear cartilage for this purpose. Through an incision behind the ear, I am able to take the curved part of the ear (the concha). This does not change the size, shape, appearance of the ear.
