Generally speaking, smoking inhibits blood flow and can slow down your recovery time.


I have read that it is thought that there is a connection between hair growth from transplants being less for smokers than for non-smokers, however the scientific evidence is not substantially strong to say to what extent it has a negative impact.


Regardless, why take the risk?

Smoking and booze is bad for everything. Why would you think that it may not affect your hair growth.


From what i know, the healing period (the first month) is very important. You would want to do everything to speed up the healing, and that includes not smoking and drinking. You don't need a doctor to tell you this.


I am not a doctor. The opinions and comments are of my own.
