According to the new study, published in The Daily Mail, patients are advised to drop cigarettes at least a month before any cosmetic procedure, since nicotine restricts blood flow and prohibits the skin flaps from getting cured.
Research published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery shows that one-month abstinence leads to 25 percent of smokers quitting altogether.
Another 40 percent smoke from time to time and 70 percent say it was the first time they really considered quitting.
The findings add to an already rising trend in plastic surgery, which saw the United States spent an astounding $ 16 billion in cosmetic procedures.
According to experts, it has been shown that nicotine reduces the capillaries, resulting in a reduction in blood flow and can lead to a frightening and horrible go wrong, as the skin struggles to rejoin.
Surgeons urge patients to quit smoking altogether, for general health reasons.
However, studies have shown that a month without smoking makes enough difference to prevent major complications.happy wheels
