Wearing of Sunglasses + N95 Masks?

It's been over 6 years since I had my rhinoplasty (with silicone implant). Everything's fine. I'm thinking about resuming the wearing of sunglasses and N95 masks (when necessary) and was wondering if the implant may shift or dent under the pressure?

6 yrs after rhinoplasty and sunglasses

I usually let patient wear sunglasses by about 6 weeks after surgery. So if you are 6 years after surgery I should not think that would be a problem.
