of any problems especially with healing sooner rather than later. This is a problematic area because of hygiene and because patients usually do not realize how much their undergarments and jeans are pressing on the surgical site. This can also cause healing problems, with too much pressure and shear on the wound site. I tell my patients to keep the site well padded and to wear loose clothing, preferably dresses in the healing period. Good luck and speak to your doctor!
I would call your plastic surgeons office and see if they have a colleague to refer you to while your surgeon is away. Glad to help.
