Why should I stop smoking before surgery and during recovery?

We’ve been told that not smoking can offer cardiovascular health benefits, but did you know that it can improve the way you heal?

If you smoke, it inhibits blood flow to your skin which can interfere with your healing and make the scars more noticeable. Smoking can also increase your risk of infection. Not smoking before surgery and during recovery is very important to achieving good results.
