How long after a TT do you have to wait to shower?
Thank you for your question and congratulations on your surgery! I would recommend asking this question of your surgeon as each of us will have their own respective post-surgical protocol for patient care. It may depend on the presence of drains as well as any incision related issues. In most cases patient's can shower 24-48 hours after surgery, allowing warm soapy water to run over their incisions and patting them dry when done. Hope this helps.

Each surgeon has their own
post operative protocols that differ. This questions should be address by your
Showering After Tummy Tuck
Each plastic surgeon has his or her own recommendations regarding showering after a tummy tuck, so it is best to ask your surgeon. In my practice we recommend that patients wait about four to five days after surgery to shower. If you still have drains in at that time, it is important not to accidentally dislodge them while showering. Best of luck.

When to Shower After a Tummy Tuck
This is something you should discuss with your surgeon. For my patients they are allowed to shower 24 hours after their drains have been removed. Good luck.

Thanks for your inquiry. In general if you have drains they need to be out for 24 hours, however even then some patients wounds are not ready for a shower. Please ask your plastic surgeon when is it okay. Good Luck.

In our practice we do not routinely use drains for a tummy tuck so we let our patients shower after 48 hours. Every surgeon has their own preference so you are best off following what your surgeon suggests. Best wishes
