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.
