I am scheduled to have a BBL this coming week. I scheduled my procedure about 8 months ago. Should I cancel my procedure?

Every elective surgery should be done in the best condition possible
Every elective surgery should be done in the best condition possible. Smoking is one of those condition that should be under control once you go to the OR. You might not have problem because of your smoking condition with a liposuction and bbl but for sure it does affect results and recovery time. I also request a clearance from the phenumologist when I treat a smoker, specially if the patient have been smoking for years and even when had stopped. Wish you the best for your surgery. Regards.
