Doctor harvested cartilage on both ears with incision at the back of the ears. Sutures on nose and cast are removed. Can i shower now? Is it safe to get the ear stitches wet? Just want to clarify further.
Typically, a closed, well-healing surgical incision may be exposed to soap, shampoo, and water 1 week after surgery. You should check with your surgeon to clarify your post-operative instructions. Good luck in your recovery!
