When can I bathe after surgery?
Thanks for your question. The answer really depends upon the judgment of your plastic surgeon.
I have different bathing restrictions depending upon the surgery that is performed. Your surgeons will likely want to see your drains out ( if any) and that your wounds are healing nicely before soaking in a tub.
I let my own patients shower relatively early, but soak only when the wounds are clearly well sealed.
Your PS will likely give you specific instructions based upon the surgery that you are having.

Your plastic surgeon should provide you with detailed post op instructions, so it is best to ask for his or her recommendations. Best of luck
