Just curious - shower after TT.

Surgeons vary with their protocols
but my tummy tuck patients can shower 2 days after surgery and can use a girdle anytime they want as long as it wasn't a struggle to put on. I prefer using waist cinchers that have hook and eye closures.
Shower after surgery
Thank you for your question. Every surgeon has a different post operative protocol they want their patients to follow. Call your surgeon's office and ask them what their shower protocol is after surgery.
Shower after tummy tuck?
Congratulations on having undergone the tummy tuck procedure. You will find that postoperative routines will vary from one plastic surgeon to another; best to follow your plastic surgeon's instructions precisely.
Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.

Shower after TT
You should follow your plastic surgeons advice.
I usually use waterproof dressings and I advise my patients they can shower from 48 to 72 hours. However, if they get the dressings waterlogged then they should be changed to a clean dressing.
Showering After a Tummy Tuck
This is something you need to check with your surgeon about. For my patients, I allow them to shower 24 hours after their drains have been removed and the drain incisions have healed becoming "waterproof" preventing bacteria from entering. Good luck.
Thank you for the question and every surgeon has his own protocol. I allow patients to shower at 3 days post op.
