Smoking and obesity are independent risk factors of cardiovascular diseases [1]. Although nicotine is a known metabolic stimulant, heavy smokers tend to have greater body weight than light or non-smokers [2]. Smoking also increases the risk of diabetes mellitus and hypertension [3]. It increases the risk of organ space infection, prolonged intubation, reintubation, pneumonia, sepsis, shock, and longer length of stay in all patients undergoing bariatric surgery [4,5].
