Hot tubs ok before surgery, but not after
Relaxation and a massage sound like a great way to treat yourself and relax before your procedure. I do not allow my patients to be in Jacuzzis or hot tubs four weeks after surgery. These restrictions are because after surgery you have incisions which can allow bacteria a way into your tissues whereas your intact skin serves as a great barrier. Make sure you stay well hydrated if you are planning to utilize steam rooms or other hot treatments. Enjoy. Best wishes, Dr. Meghan Nadeau, Seattle, WA
