Surgery coming up soon! Can the gas and smoke from weed eater affect me?
Doctor Answers 5
Mommy make-over - has the smoke from the weed eater a problem?
- You should be fine but you are right to let your surgeon know.
- Clearly your exposure was limited -
- The problem with cigarette smoke is it is usually indoors, concentrated, deeply inhaled - and fully absorbed.
- Exposure to gas and weed eater smoke outdoors means you were exposed to much and inhaled less.
- But from now until 6 weeks after surgery, it is best to avoid any such exposure if possible-
- Tell your husband the grass is his to do for the rest of the summer - alone!
Your limited exposure to the gas should not affect your #mommymakeover #results. No worries! That being said, please refrain from doing any strenuous activity like mowing the lawn until six weeks after surgery.
Consult your #boardcertified plastic surgeon if you have any major concerns.
