when the incisions are completely healed, you may go in a spa or swimming pool. Your plastic surgeon will be able to determine this. My patients shower the day after surgery.

Thank you for the question and photos. It is best to discuss this with your board certified plastic surgeon. In my practice I ask my patients to wait for 8 weeks prior to swimming in a pool. This may vary with each surgeon. Good luck.

Thank you for your question. It is best to have your incisions assessed by your surgeon. The safe answer for this question is to wait 6 weeks.
