How long after a Fat Grafting would it be safe to smoke? I had Liposuction and Fat grafted to my abdomen to correct a previous Liposuction. Thank you.
Smoking and Fat Transfer
Thanks for your question - Smoking can create serious problems post-operatively especially when you're talking about fat transfer. Nicotine (in addition to other harms) causes vasoconstriction of the blood vessels. This can cause the transferred fat to not be able create its own blood supply and die. I hope this helps.
