I require that my patients stop smoking 8 weeks before surgery as well as 8 weeks after surgery. And yes, marajuana counts.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
