Couple of days


depends somewhat on how heavy a smoker you were, how deeply you inhaled and held the cigarette, and the nicotine content of the tobacco you were using, but in general urinary cotinine (the metabolite of nicotine) becomes negative within 2-3 days after cessation.

Don't smoke.


Smoking only harms the body, and also prematurely ages the skin. Most surgeons require patients to stop smoking 6-8 weeks before surgery, and not restart for 4-6 weeks after surgery. However, once you stop, don't start again- it's not worth it.

As soon as possible


You should stop smoking for at least 2 weeks before and continue at least 2 weeks after the procedure. Although nicotine only lasts 24 hrs in your system, the detrimental effects may last much longer. Smoking increases risks of complications and prolongs the healing process. Abstaining is one thing that you control that can optimize your results and ensure a safer procedure.

4 weeks


A minimum of 4 weeks is necessary to rid the body of all the nicotine by-products. For a facelift I would prefer if patients quit permanently prior to performing one, for several reasons but specifically cause it decreases blood flow and this is crucial prior and after surgery.

No pretty gum


Trace amounts of nicotine can be detected in blood and urine for several hours, but it should be gone by 48 hours. However, if you are being tested for nicotine, there is a metabolite of nicotine, called cotinine, which can be detected in blood or urine for as long as 7 to 10 days after your last exposure to nicotine.
