Rhinoplasty after Smartxide Laser Therapy
Waiting one month after DOT laser for the rhinoplasty surgery should be adequate. Your nasal surgeon should be aware of the laser therapy and evaluate the nasal skin prior to the surgery.
DOT therapy and rhinoplasty
Certainly let your surgeon know that you've had a session of DOT therapy (SmartXide), but it's hard to imagine that it would be much of an interference with surgery as long as there is no significant skin redness or irritation.
I've been a bit of a skeptic about SmartXide, though. Have you seen much result from it?

You should be fine by the time of your surgery, but just to be safe, let your surgeon know if he/she is not aware of your skin treatments. Good luck with the surgery.
