 It is best to separate both procedures in time by at least one month since the rhinoplasty procedure elevates the skin from the underneath side, and a laser treatment burns the skin from the top side.

It depends upon what type of laser treatment you are undergoing to determine if both a laser treatment and a rhinoplasty can be done at the same time.

There are various types of lasers. In any advent the laser causes heating and temporary damage to the skin.
I think it unwise to do the same together or anytime close to each other.

It is very important to maintain good vascularity of nasal skin.  This can be affected adversely with laser treatments and should never be done at the same time as the rhinoplasty.  You should give at least 1 year between the treatments.
