I am a 19-year-old female and I am supposed to have a rhinoplasty surgery in a few days. However, this week I was in Mexico for spring break and I am very badly sunburned. Can I still have the procedure? What are the risks of having a nose job with badly burned and peeling skin?
You should talk to your own plastic surgeon and let him know of your sun burn but I would tell you to postpone your nasal reshaping surgery until your skin has healed. Sun damaged or sunburned skin can complicate the surgery and healing whether you get the sunburn before or even after your nosejob.
