We always urge our Denver-area patients to quit smoking before any procedure. This advice certainly applies to liposuction.
We understand that giving up smoking is a difficult, daunting task, and it might seem impossible before your liposuction procedure. But doing so will preserve and extend your life. It will also make recovery from your procedure much easier.
Generally speaking, you should avoid smoking for approximately two weeks before your procedure, though a permanent halt to the habit is by far the best idea.
