Should I postpone my surgery?

Q:

I am having smartlipo in 8 days. I had a bad day and smoked about 3 cigarettes. Should I postpone my surgery?

A:

If your health is otherwise good and you are mentally ready for surgery then there is no need to postpone your surgery if only liposuction is planned.  On the other hand, if skin excision is also planned then you should discuss this with your surgeon.
