This is an interesting question.  I think the answer would vary with:

1-How extensively impacted your molars are

2-How many molars are being removed

3-How extensive your rhinoplasty will be (or was)

Ultimately, this is a discussion you should have with your rhinoplasty surgeon. If the oral surgeons are planning on using masks to anesthetize you, this will affect the answer.  If there is no chance they will be placing any pressure on the nose, it may reduce the amount of time you have to wait.

Hope this helps,
