Or eat it? I am a regular consumer of marijuana and don't want to take a break, but can if I have to for safety with general anesthesia. How much of a break, if any, is advisable?
Smoking Pot before or after Surgery
Smoking pot should not affect your surgery. However, as stated, you should be upfront with your doctor and your anesthesiologist prior to surgery so that they can plan accordingly.

is not a contraindication but you should inform your surgeon and the anesthetist/anesthesiologist so you can be properly informed of the risks you assume by continuing to use marijuana up to the date of surgery and presumably post-operatively.

Smoking pot is against the law unless it is prescribed as medicinal marijuana. Would you trust a Plastic Surgeon who tells you it's ok to do something illegal?
