occur in smokers and it probably is an
effect on the blood vessels when people

that erectile function that they lost
when they were smoking if I have a
patient who's smoking I really try to
convince them to stop smoking before the

body's natural healing mechanisms not
only at the skin level where your skin
incision occurs but inside where most of
