Can I shower after Breast Augmentation?
My doctor said I should wait 48 hours until showering, and yet I'm worried about damaging my sutures. Is it safe to have water run over my dressings?
ALWAYS follow the recommendations of your surgeon in regard to dressings and incision care. The surgeon may have additional information regarding your case upon which recommendations were given to YOU. If you have any concerns or questions, speak with YOUR surgeon.

Thank you for the question and congratulations on you breast augmentation!
I usually put a water resistant dressing on the wound and have my patients shower the next day after surgery. I think waiting 48 hours until showering is okay but always follow your surgeon's recommendations.
Best of luck!
