Be careful with sun after rhinoplasty surgery

It’s fantastic to have good weather at last to start our British Summer!

Don’t forget that exposure to the sun though risks premature aging and skin cancers.

In Rhinoplasty it’s very important that the skin isn’t exposed to strong sunlight for at least 3 months afterwards as it’s much more prone to sunburn and long term swelling for this time.  A complete sun block and a hat should be worn when out in bright sun-light.

The skin is so important in Rhinoplasty and it’s also important to know that drugs like Roaccutane  tablets and Accutane cream should be avoided for 3 months before and after rhinoplasty.
