Does anyone know a surgeon that will preform a tummy tuck on a smoker ?

I live in east Texas and have been dreaming of a tummy tuck for 20 years ! I'm also a smoker which I know is horrid as I'm also a nurse that has worked oncology, ER and Hospice ! I have tried multi x's to quit I've tried chantix, Wellbutrin, patches, Nicotine gums, hypnosis even staples ! I'm gonna try Chantix again too ! However I want to know if there is anyone preferably in my area that will do it regardless of whether I'm successful or not!

I'm sorry you've had such a tough time quitting. I hope Chantix is successful for you the second time around. I don't know any doctors that will do tummy tucks on smokers and I would probably be wary of one who would. You can call around, but make sure you call board certified surgeons.

Here's what some doctors say about smoking and plastic surgery.

Good luck and please keep us posted on if you're able to quit!
