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

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

It is important to stop smoking before any aesthetic surgery. I ask patients to stop three months prior to a consultation. This may sound excessive. But after ninety days, people generally can stay away from cigarettes. Surgery can be stressful, and stress during recovery may be the reason someone might start smoking again.
