In general, we can have good indications from the age of 50. 

The tobacco is recognized as a a factor that delays skin healingwhich results in a longer healing time, increase the risk of complications and to give unsightly scars. The scientific literature agrees with this (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22566015/) and this is why I recommend to all my patients to stop smoking before a plastic surgery intervention.
