Does Kissing Make Your Nose Droop?

I had a nose job 3 months ago and do not want to kiss because I value my nose over a smooch. So, I would like to know if there are any long/short term effects to how kissing can effect the appearance of my nose. Thanks.

You should avoid kissing after a rhinoplasty for 1-2 yyears!!!!!!---just kidding--a little plastic surgery humor. A few weeks is all you need. Enjoy!

You will not harm your result by kissing.  I tell my patients that all activity can be resumed safely after 6 weeks.

Your nose may be a little stiff at the three month mark, but as long as you are not rough with it all should be well. Go ahead and smooch away.

Try picking a side - your nose on the left of his, or vice versa, then enjoy !  At 3 months you won't hurt your nose with a little gentle nuzzling.

By three months while  your nose may be a bit stiff, kissing shoudl be ok.  Good luck and enjoy the smooch!

Kissing makes your nose droop?

Three months after rhinoplasty your nose will feel stiff as yet, though kissing is OK. Some feel the nose is still firm and 'out there' when it comes to kissing, though by three months you will not harm the result or cause the tip to droop. Kissing should be even better at six to twelve months (we hope).

Kissing should not alter the appearance of your nose after rhinoplasty.  At 3 months the nose is quite strong
