Laser resurfacing after rhinoplasty

It is certainly safe to do a laser 7 weeks after a rhinoplasty however be very careful over the nose.  the skin remains sensitive and rarely needs much tightening.  The only reason I would do a laser is for color match.  I would recommend going very superficial if at all on the nose.  Good luck.
