A 43-year-old member asked:

What do you suggest if my nose job is 2 weeks away and i was sitting with my friends who smoke, will it effect the results or anesthesia or anything ?

No: If your surgery is two weeks away, any smoke you inhaled will be long gone. Try to stay away from smoke (tobacco or other) in general, but it won't be a problem in terms of anesthesia.
Dr. David Sherris
Facial Plastic Surgery 33 years experience
No: You will have no problems from smoke exposure 2 weeks before surgery. Good luck.
Dr. Suzanne Galli

Rhinoplasty: Secondary smoke should not affect your upcoming surgery.
Dr. Otto Placik

Unlikely: A brief exposure is unlikely to cause any significant problems. It is usually prolonged or chronic use that leads to difficulties with healing
