When you smoke, the poisons from the tar in your cigarettes enter your blood. These poisons in your blood then:
Make your blood thicker, and increase chances of clot formation
Increase your blood pressure and heart rate, making your heart work harder than normal
Narrow your arteries, reducing the amount of oxygen rich blood circulating to your organs.
Together, these changes to your body when you smoke increase the chance of your arteries narrowing and clots forming, which can cause a heart attack or stroke.Source(s): fitneshealthforever

Yes. The smoke you inhale contain;
Acetone—found in nail polish remover
Acetic acid—an ingredient in hair dye
Ammonia—a common household cleaner
Arsenic—used in rat poison
Benzene—found in rubber cement and gasoline
Butane—used in lighter fluid
Cadmium—active component in battery acid
Carbon monoxide—released in car exhaust fumes
Hexamine—found in barbecue lighter fluid
Lead—used in batteries
Naphthalene—an ingredient in mothballs
Methanol—a main component in rocket fuel
Nicotine—used as an insecticide
Tar—material for paving roads
Toluene—used to manufacture paint
Plus cigs damage your lungs causing you to cough up phlegm which may tear out your stitches. (Very painful!) All of these will affect your stitches keeping them constantly infected. It would be best to stop smoking until you heal.

Yup. Smoke from anything being burned and sucked in through your mouth is full of nasty chemicals that will inhibit proper healing. You are also working under a poisoned and diminished oxygen capacity.
