Is It Important to Quit Smoking for Local/ Twilight Anesthesia?

I'm getting body jet lipo. I smoke about 5 cigarettes a day. I know there is a very serious risk for smokers receiving general anesthesia, but what about twilight/local? And yes, I know smoking is HORRIBLE for you, most of my friends are doctors and I get lectured daily. :/

It is always best to quit smoking. Complications are much higher in smokers and that is for both the anaesthetic and the surgery
