Yes, it can. Smoking slows down healing. In the first healing stage, platelets, which are blood cell fragments, stick to each other and to rough areas in the wound to form a blood clot, which plugs any leaking blood vessels. Cigarette smoke can cause platelets to become excessively sticky, and this increases the chance that an abnormal blood clot will form. Smoking can also prevent oxygen from being transported from cell to cell. This slows healing because oxygen provides energy for the repair process.
Then, during the infection-fighting stage of healing, the nicotine in tobacco reduces the formation of macrophages, which are special white blood cells that remove bacteria and dead tissue from the healing area. Here, too, the lack of oxygen slows healing because oxygen helps kill anaerobic bacteria that may be infecting the area. This can be particularly damaging when we're treating gum disease because some of the bacteria that are active in causing gum disease are the anaerobic type. My father has his gallbladder removed a month and a half ago, and he smokes. He has had a lot of complications, but it's not really related to the cigarette smoke. If you have to smoke just try to cut down after your surgery, at least for a week or two. Give your body time to heal. Hope this will help.
