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.

Yes, full face Erbium laser skin resurfacing, such as Fraxel restore or Palomar's 1540, is safe to have done 7 weeks after rhinoplasty, even on the columella.  Good luck and be well.
