Laser hair removal in weeks post-rhinoplasty
Dying hair on your head will not be a problem. However, I suggest you wait another few weeks before lasering the upper lip area.

Some of this will depend on whether you had open or closed rhinoplasty. I would recommend not doing these treatments to the lip for quite a while. It would be like getting sunburned right after the rhinoplasty. It may not make much difference, but I would wait.
