    Default Smoking

    I had a 2100 graft hair transplant on Oct 3. I quit smoking two weeks prior to the surgery, and didn't have any cigarettes until exactly two weeks and one day after the surgery. Since the surgery, I haven't fully picked back up smoking. I've mostly just had a cigarette here and there. Never more than 3-4 cigs in one day, but I go most days without smoking at all.

    I was just wondering if I'm in great danger of completely ruining my results? Am I screwed?

    And one other important question I'd like to get answered is how soon after one cigarette do your blood vessels return to their normal state. In other words, how long do the negative effects of one cig on your blood supply last before they wear off? I mean, does one cigarette completely ruin you for months? Or does the negative effect go away within hours/days?

    AgentX,

    I have my opinion on the subject but I did a quick google search on "how long does the effect of one cigarette last?" This is a good link that popped up.

    https://www.livestrong.com/article/1...g-a-cigarette/

    With that out of the way, you know that smoking is bad for you so why would you want to knowingly deprive your valuable new grafts of the ideal healing and recovery environment? I understand the urge, the need, to smoke but you have to power through the urges and just stop. Is it a fact that you'll harm your grafts? No. Have I seen the effect of smoking on bad results? Once, maybe twice, that I can recall, but in general it won't harm your grafts.

    I think the scenarios where it can harm your grafts is if you had a genuine dense pack session and/or you smoke a pack a day or more. The habit you described as your own should be fine but it is again a less than optimal environment for the best chance of success.
