Electrolysis on Facial Hair and Facial Plastic Surgery

Hi, I am considering getting electrolysis/laser done on the nose for unwanted hairs. I am also due to have Rhinoplasty in 3 months. Is it ok to do electrolysis/laser treatment a few months prior to rhinoplasty and how long before the rhinoplasty should I stop the treatments. Many Thanks

Electrolysis can be quite effective for treatment of unwanted hair.  I'd suggest stopping electrolysis 2-3 weeks prior to surgical procedure in the area
