Smoking after Surgery?
The use of tobacco before and immediately after surgery increases the risk of complications including necrosis (death of tissue). Generally, I advise patients avoid tobacco for at least two weeks before surgery and three weeks after. Check with your doctor, but I would avoid tobacco to avoid complications. Good luck.
