What are the effects of smoking and alcohol on a Cheek Enhancement?

Smoking greatly increases the risks of complications. It can lead to longer healing time and increases the risk of infection. As a result, we recommend you stop smoking at least six weeks before and after surgery. In addition, alcohol and recreational drugs may also increase the rate of complications. We therefore recommend you recommend abstaining from alcohol during this time too.

It is very important that you answer any questions you have before your surgery. Your Medbelle BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon will be happy to answer any of these questions. Alternatively, you can speak to one of our patient care advisers and they will be happy to help provide more information.
