How long before breast augmentation do I have to stop smoking?

I want to have breast augmentation surgery. How long before the procedure do I have to stop smoking?

Hello,

It is best to stop smoking at least 4-5 weeks before any procedure. I do suggest consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to any procedure on what you need to stop taking and when. Such as smoking or any medications you may take. Thank you for your question and have a great day!

It is best to stop smoking at least 5 weeks before any plastic surgical procedure that involves general anesthesia. However smoking has less risk for breast augmentation and it does for a breast lift or facelift. Please consult a plastic surgeon for specific advice.
