What are the effects of alcohol, smoking and recreational drugs on buttock lift surgery?

If you smoke, drink alcohol, or take recreational drugs, then you may be at an increased risk of developing complications during and after your buttock lift procedure. Smoking, in particular, will delay the time it takes any wounds to heal and increases the risk of infection. It is strongly encouraged that you stop smoking and using nicotine products for at least six weeks before and after surgery.

Make sure to follow your surgeon’s specific instructions regarding smoking, drinking alcohol and using drugs before your buttock lift, no matter how much or little you consume. This ensures that you have a smooth recovery and end up with the best possible results from your procedure.
