Sun Exposure after Rhinoplasty
It is important for the one year following any kind of surgery to wear appropriate sun protection when going outside as sun exposure during healing can result in brown discolouration of the skin or scars.

Sun Exposure after Rhinolasty
I advise everyone to use sunscreen, whether or not they've had rhinoplasty. Your nasal skin will be more sensitive for about 6 weeks after surgery. After all those suggestions, I'll answer your question: you can go to the beach!

Sun after rhinoplasty is bad
But for how long the precise answer isn't known. So surgeons err on the side of caution and recommend six months. This means no direct sun and sun screen while at the beach etc. Your overlying skin is hurt with rhinoplasty and must be pampered. It takes several months for the skin to settle down.
