Can I smoke after surgery?

October 30, 2019

Smoking can affect healing after surgery and makes you more likely to develop an infection. We would advise you to stop smoking before and after your surgery.

If you would like more information about stopping smoking please visit, call the Smokefree National Helpline on 0300 123 1044 or speak to a member of staff for more information.
