ANSWER

Smoking and Breast Lifts

Thanks for your question Smoking always interferes with wound healing. It can also pose dangers with general anesthesia (something many plastic surgeons forget since we focus so much on wound healing). 11 days is a relatively short time to have stopped smoking. You should discuss this issue seriously with your plastic surgeon. Good luck!
