Had septoplasty and rhinoplasty. Grafting done. Whitish blob inside the nostril. Could this be the cartilage which was grafted?

I had septoplasty and rhinoplasty 6 days ago. He had to graft (which used cartilage from septum ) to build up one side of my nose. There seems to be a whitish, rubbery, mesh, blob that is visable up my nostril. When I gently pull on it, it seems stuck. What is this? Is it normal and could it be cartilage that was grafted?

Thanks for contacting for HCM,
you have septoplasty and rhinoplasty 6 days back, and graft always placed under the mucosa or skin .if Cartilage graft kept exposed to external environment then it may cause inflammation or infection . it should not be the cartilage. Better to consult your surgeon .
