Can I still smoke after a Rhinoplasty?

Question: I’m a 26-year-old male looking to have a nose job. I’m a long-time smoker and I stopped smoking for the past 2 weeks so I can have the surgery. I was told I would have to give up smoking after the surgery as well but I’m not sure I can resist. What would happen if I smoke too soon after my rhinoplasty? What is the least amount of time I can wait to smoke again? Answer: Smoking and plastic surgery don’t go together, especially after a rhinoplasty, facelift, breast lift or tummy tuck. It is preferable for you to not smoke after rhinoplasty for at least one month as it can affect the healing.
