Smoking after rhinoplasty surgery risks? (for me, it's second-hand exposure)
Hi all. I have a quick question about secondhand smoke. I had planned to spend the summer at my boyfriend's apartment. He and his two roommates are all smokers. They do not smoke in the bedrooms, but they do smoke in the living room/kitchen area. Their apartment does have the distinct smell of smoke. Initially, I thought maybe I could just leave the room if they started smoking (which is frequent if we're all hanging out) and go hang out in the bedroom. However, I'm wondering if just being around the smell of smoke or something will have a negative effect after rhinoplasty surgery?
I emailed my doctor about it just now, but I'm wondering if maybe anyone has had any experience with this?
If you r planning to have a surgery- you should stay away from smoking and any ETS (passive smoking) for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. Passive smoking is worse that smoking yourself.
If after you had surgery: It does affect it somehow especially if you harvested cartilage from somewhere else and replaced it in your nose. If you simply shaved some parts of the nose like minimal hump removal than it should nt be much of an issue. Smoke deteriorates certain tissues and accellerates the lifespan of certain tissues.
And smoke moves around that whole house although oftentimes we dont see it. There are about more than 2000 toxic ingredients in a cigarrette. hope this helps:goog eyes:
Thanks for the response! I haven't had surgery yet (next month!) but I'm trying to figure out how to make my summer living situation work. I personally wouldn't smoke, but I think people would react rather badly to me telling them not to smoke. I definitely won't be around any smoke before the surgery, and I wasn't planning on going to their apartment until 2.5 weeks after surgery.
Let s put it this way-if you are exposed a little bit to smoke, I dnt think that will affect your surgery cause it s little. I think if they smoke in the kitchen having a balcony or a large window open (if it s not cold or windy:goog eyes:) and you stay in another room until it clears up then I think that you ll be ok.
Even for other health reasons, try to avoid passive smoking (second hand smoking) cause it s worse than having an actual cigarrette.
Gdluck with your surgery;)
Smoke may annoy you since you don't smoke yourself but since you don't have any heart conditions, allergies, etc your health won't be affected. And your results can't be affected.
I'm a smoker and know a lot of people that had rhinoplasties and smoke.
