7 day post op. I had the bandages off. Should I still be more covered? (Photo)

Should I ?
Bandages post OP
In my practice, I typically have the nurse remove the bandages at the patient's one week post operative visit. The steri strips will be protection enough as there is special adhesive that keeps them in place. Follow your surgeon's post care instructions and recovery should be a breeze.
Best of luck to you.

Post Op Incision Care
Steri strips covering and protecting the incision for a couple weeks post op is standard care. Your incisions should be safe and heal fine. If you note any concerning changes, please visit your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best
