You need to inform your surgeon and the anesthesiologist of your use. It can not only negatively impact the surgery, it can threaten your life. It is important to disclose all medications, supplements and drug use with your surgical team. It is for your safety.

Thank you for your question. Cocaine use could negatively affect blood flow, your ability to heal as well as your safety while under anaesthetic. 18 days would not likely be sufficient time to reduce your risks. I recommend that you tell your Plastic Surgeon immediately and do not proceed with surgery at this time.
All the best
