How soon after a rhinoplasty can a patient have LASER procedure?
The question here is on the type of rhinoplasty and the type of LASER. Soon after a rhinoplasty, LASER resurfacing procedures (i.e. C02 laser, Erbium laser, Fractionated C02 laser) must be performed with caution as the skin takes some time to revascularize. In some cases, patients must wait 6 months or longer to receive some type of LASER procedures. Lasers used to target blood vessels can be utilized earlier with conservative settings. It is best to speak to your surgeon to help determine a timetable that maximizes the risk to benefit ratio.
