I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

You should stop pot at least three weeks before the plastic surgery. Healing would be facilitated by it. Anesthesia risk too would go away by stopping it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
