Can I stay in the sun?

The young scar is very sensitive to the sun´s rays as it contains very few melanocytes. Therefore during the first 6 months after surgery we recommend protecting the scar with a sunblock or to stay out of the sun. During the first week after surgery it’s better to keep out of the sun completely as the risk for infection might be higher if your face and body get too warm.
