Can smoking cause issues with the outcome of a brazilian butt lift? If you are a smoker, how far in advance should you stop smoking before the procedure?

Typically we require patients to cease smoking 30 days prior to surgery. Patients or surgeons who do surgery on smoking patients are possible subject to post-surgical complications. I highly suggest that you quit prior to surgery to avoid any complications that can arise from smoking. 

I hope this helps.
