Many women question why they need to give up smoking before plastic surgery. The answer is simple: smoking and nicotine deprive the body of oxygen, and oxygen is essential not only to healing safely, but also to healing well.
It’s important that you quit smoking at least two weeks before surgery and as many as eight weeks after surgery. This means no cigarettes or cigars, no nicotine patches or gum, and certainly no snuff.
Although this may seem difficult, not smoking for several weeks may ultimately help you quit for life.
