Is smoking permitted before gastric band surgery?
Should I quit smoking before gastric band surgery?
Gastric band patients must not smoke at least 1-2 weeks before and after the surgery. Ideally, patients do not smoke at all. Smoking seriously increases the risk of post-op complications, especially short-term complications, such as blood clots, wound healing, stomach ulcers, and pulmonary complications.
