Is It Ok to Snog (Kiss) Someone After Rhinoplasty?

Kissing and Rhinoplasty
Yes, but make sure contact to the nose is avoided for the first few weeks of recovery. Allow the nose the opportunity to heal in the appropriate manner.
It is okay to kiss after rhinoplasty
It is okay to kiss someone after a rhinoplasty. The tip of their nose is going to be swollen and tender for approximately the first month or two. Any pressure on the nose will be painful to the person who had the rhinoplasty.
Be gentle after rhinoplasty
Don't hit the nose and you'll be fine. It takes quite a force to injure the nose, so be careful. Gentle kissing is not going to harm anything.

The nose is fragile
After a rhinoplasty, the nose is swollen and fragile. It's okay to kiss the patient but be slow, gentle and not too passionate! Give them 2-3 weeks to recover a bit.
Just be careful
In the first few days following rhinoplasty a splint is being used to protect the delicate nasal structures. In the same time there is some degree of nasal obstruction from the swelling of the mucus menbranes on the inside of the nose. This could make the patient a mouth breather for a short time. So i guess the answer is you can but make sure you do not suffocate her or displace the splint!!
