Make Sure Incisions Have Healed First
Soaking in a nice warm bath is something that many patients want to do soon after getting breast augmentation, but it's important to wait until the incisions are completely healed beforehand. It's essential to seek out follow your plastic surgeon's instructions, even on everyday questions like this. If you're unsure at all about your recovery, get in touch with your plastic surgeon's office to have your specific questions answered.

Bathing Post Op
It would be best to ask your Plastic Surgeon this question. Typically my patients have their steri strips removed 2-3 weeks post op and I allow bathing and swimming at two weeks. Your Plastic Surgeon will be able to clear you for those activities.

Bathing After Breast Augmentation #breastaugmentation
- I usually recommend that my breast augmentation patients wait 2 weeks before bathing or swimming.
- You should be just fine bathing at this point. Certainly, you may double check with your plastic surgeon.

Every surgeon has a different protocol, so please contact your own surgeon for permission.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
