4 months post op. some advices:
Thank you very much for enquire.
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
I highly doubt that aggressive kissing will do any damage. If his head collided hard with your nose perhaps.
Kissing 4 months after surgery
It is unlikely that after 4 months you have caused any harm to your nose and rhinoplasty result. The nasal tip is flexible elastic cartilage and should not distort from this kind of contact. The pain you experienced is probably from the sensitive nerve endings recovering in your tip after rhinoplasty surgery.
All the best,
