How Tobacco Use Can Negatively Affect Your Recovery
During your consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Heistein, your medical history will be examined in order to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
There are certain factors that can cause complications during the procedure and during your recovery. Tobacco use is one of these factors. Smoking can significantly affect the flow of blood in the body. A strong and healthy blood flow is critical during the recovery period, as it provides the healing tissue with the nutrients and essential components it needs to thrive.
Your health and safety are the primary concerns. We believe that providing you with the information you need to have a successful procedure with excellent results is essential to the whole process. If you are committed to quitting tobacco use to ensure your safety and results during and after your procedure, contact us to schedule a consultation.
