How soon before surgery do I need to quit smoking?


I am due for Breast Explant (Total Enbloc Capsulectomy)on October 29th 2019. My Dr. wanted me 1 month nicotine free before surgery. I quit September 3rd and I slipped up on October 4th due to severe depression. I quit again on October 5th. I am 3 days shy of the 1 month smoke free period before surgery. Question: Will I still be okay for surgery on October 29th?
