How soon after a breast augmentation to shower?
There is considerable variability with regard to recommendations for showering and no one right answer. Ultimately, you need to follow the recommendations of your surgeon. For my patients, they are usually able to shower by around 2 days though with certain precautions taken.
Shower after Breast Augmentation
There are no specific guidelines for showering after breast augmentation. For my patients who have a trans-axillary breast augmentation with rapid recovery approach, I encourage them to shower and massage their breast the next day. The incision really is not strong for several weeks, but if you are gentle, then there is no reason why you can't get the area wet in the shower the following day. I hope this helps.

You can shower 3 days after a Breast Augmentation
Different surgeons will have different recommendations for when it is acceptable to shower after Breast Augmentation surgery, so it is important to follow your surgeons recommendations. I personally allow patients to shower after their first Breast Augmentation post-operative visit (usually 3 days). I usually do not recommend tub baths, or any kind of submersion of the incision, until two to three weeks after surgery.
Showers Help Patients' Recovery
Showering after surgery
Decisions about the time-frame to begin showering after surgery should be discussed with your doctor, but I have always encouraged my patients to shower the morning of surgery and the next day after their surgery. I would equate this to cleaning a scrape after a fall with soap and water. A gentle wash with soap and water in a shower feels good and keeps your skin clean, so I encourage showers after surgery. Please make sure you have someone nearby during your first shower after surgery as sometimes standing for a time can make someone light-headed.
Showering after surgery
First of all, please discuss this with your surgeon who is in the best position to advise you on all issues of post-operative care.
Typically, we allow our patients to shower (in tepid water) 48 hours after breast augmentation. If we have used a pain pump, I would like that to be removed prior to showering. If patients want to take a bath, I usually advise of waiting a few days longer.
