Smoking leads to more complications with Plastic Surgery
Cigarette smoke has a negative influence on the blood flow in the skin and fatty tissue. The carbon monoxide decreases the oxygen level, the nicotine cramps the arteries and it relaxes the veins. This means that there is less supply of oxygenated blood and the low-oxygen blood is drained less efficiently. This may cause a slightly purple-toned skin. It is more common for smokers to suffer from bruising.
