Dear Dwan
thanks for visiting healthcaremagic
You should avoid any kind of smoking for atleast three weeks before undergoing any cosmetic surgical procedures, and avoid the same for another three weeks postoperatively. however it also depents on your age, and condition of your blood vessels and might be required for longer

Hi Dwan

It is advisable to stop smoking as long before and after surgery as possible. However 3 weeks before and 6 weeks after surgery is acceptable norm

Hope it helps
