Preparing For Surgery

Smoking

Smoking needs to stop for 2 days before surgery and six weeks after it. Nicotine and tar reduce the result, definitely tar is more harmful than nicotine so shifting to chewing gum or patch may be beneficial but definitely not completely risk free, naswar, or paan, shisha have the same bad effect as cigarette. You can seek our advice and help for cessation of smoking for the said period, Alcohol, tea, coffee, fizzy drinks

Two days before and for 2 days after alcohol and caffeine containing products need to be avoided.
