Thank you for your question.
This should be discussed with your plastic surgeon because every surgeon will have a slightly different post-operative protocol. I usually recommend after 48 hours it is safe to take a shower. Just as long as it is not in very hot water or a soak in the bath. This is also a good time to have your caregiver wash and dry your garment for you. Best of luck in your recovery.
