I would recommend stopping smoking until you are completely healed.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Well, it would be best to never smoke again. Why start back? But if you are going to start back you want to wait at least 6 weeks if your wounds have healed and if you have any wound healing issues now then do not smoke until you are healed completely.
