Rhinoplasty and sunburn


After 7 months post-op from a rhinoplasty, it is extremely unlikely that it would impact your nose.  The skin  may be slightly  more sensitive to burn, I tell my patients to wear sunblock on their face at all times anyway.

Sunburn after rhinoplasty


At 7 months, a sunburn is unlikely to affect the nose. However, you should wear sunblock as sun can cause skin cancer and pre-mature aging.
