After any kind of surgical treatment, smoker and alcoholic patients might experience breathing issues, as well as a compromised immune system as the patient's body heals the surgical injuries.

Ulcers are already common in smoking and alcoholic person, but after bariatric surgical procedures, the threat of developing an ulcer substantially raises.

Blood clots in smokers are a threat after a bariatric surgical procedure because of bad blood circulation and also decreased exercise. In less than 1% of individuals, blood clots can enter the lungs or heart, causing a pulmonary embolism.

Surgical wound infections are a severe worry for people that smoke or drink prior to bariatric surgical treatment. In general, cigarette smokers have decreased blood flow because of vascular occlusion (obstruction of capillaries). The recovery process can be dramatically affected if there is not nearly enough oxygenated blood pumped to the medical wound because bariatric surgery includes reducing and also stapling the intestines. This can cause infections as oxygen is the primary source of wound healing.
