In brief: Confusing question

A kid can certainly inherit any distinctive physical feature from a parent.
If the parent chose to have a rhinoplasty to make it more cosmetically acceptable then the kid might face the same decision when they became an adult.

The short answer is no.
I think that you are asking if an infant will have the post-surgical appearance of a nose that has been operated on? It is more that case that the infants nose will "evolve" to look like either mum or dad or a blend of both.
