Haven't had a cigarette in a week and I'm making awesome progress in the gym. Losing a bit of body fat and still managing to keep growing and getting stronger. It's been a good week.
Have another poop selfie.
NO SMOKING B&A SURGERY – Smoking is a major hazard for plastic surgery. There are more than 7,000 toxic substances which 70 of them are known to be cancerous. Smoking induces an oxidative stress to cells, thus leading to tissue damage and wound healing impairment. Also smoking is a risk factor for surgical site infections. Plastic surgery procedures are blood supply dependent, the blood vessels specially the microcirculation are damaged by the smoking end products. This for example can lead to abdominal flap wound dehiscence and necrosis in a tummy tuck or nipple necrosis in breast lift/reduction, complications that are catastrophic for both the surgeon and the patient. The patient needs to quit smoking for at least 2 months before and after surgery as a preventive measure.
