    Is it OK to have a laser hair removal 10 days before surgery?

    hi @sibs and welcome! I have no idea about the laser! That would be something I'd ask my surgeon or his staffers who answer questions like that. I do know that surgeons and hospitals these days are very strict about infection control, pre- and post-op.

    Whereabouts will the laser be targeted?

    I can't see why not but why would you want to? And I think you should run this past your surgeon.

    If there is any risk of infection following the laser hair removal, my gut feel would be not to chance it. But then I know nothing about such things! :)
