The two most important things you can do: Avoid the dangerous double S

You can increase your chances of a happy, long-lasting outcome. Cease these major causes of wrinkles, smoking and sun, and you can help ensure we are able to meet your goals:

  • Before surgery – stop smoking

You may know a smoker who has had cosmetic treatments and surgery, but some procedures actually require that the patient cease smoking. In fact, smokers aren’t good candidates for tummy tucks or facelifts. You should know that smoking speeds up the skin’s aging process, with many fine lines and wrinkles actually caused by the repetitive muscle actions, such as pursuing the lips while smoking. This action is a significant contributor to the lines that form around the mouth.

  • After surgery – eliminate any unprotected sun exposure

Sun exposure can create the same wrinkling effects that smoking does, as well as cause dark spots and increase your risk of skin cancer. After cosmetic surgery, scar tissue, which can be caused by even the smallest incisions, is particularly susceptible to sun damage.
