    Jeff,

    By day 7, the grafts are pretty much anchored and since you spent a minimal amount of time in the sun, you’re probably okay. However, keep in mind that avoiding excessive sun post-operation is usually recommended, but unless the burn was severe it probably will not affect the final result. However, I would recommend contacting your clinic and confirming that you’re following all post-operative instructions carefully (and ask them the same question to make sure the time spent in the sun was okay).

    Good luck!

    Seven days post surgery I went for an appointment in a city and spent about 30 mins walking around on a sunny day. I didn’t get sunburnt and felt no ill effects on my recipient area but am I likely to have done any damage to my grafts and thus my likely results?
