Things to consider for breast reduction in Melbourne, Florida
With regards to your question
about using nicotine vapor, the answer is that you should stop using all types
of nicotine well in advance of surgery due to wound healing risks from the
vasoconstriction. I hope this is
helpful. Best of luck!
Nicotine and breast reduction
I have patients stop any and all nicotine in advance of surgery. Nicotine is s drug that causes vasoconstriction and can impair wound healing.
0 nicotine before surgery
Yes, I have had many patients successfully stop using nicotine products (cigarettes, nicotine containing e-cigs, patches, gum, chew) by using a 0 nicotine e-cig. You really want to make sure there are no other additives, because using nicotine less than 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after your surgery significantly increases your chances of having wound healing problems or worse (impaired blood flow to your nipple).
Smoking and Breast Reduction Surgery
Stopping cigarettes before breast reduction surgery is very important in order to heal properly. If your electronic cigarette has no nicotine it should be fine to smoke before surgery.
