Body Procedure

Post Operative Question Answer

How long do I need to refrain from soaking in water, such as baths or swimming pools, after the procedure?

After the procedure, it is important to refrain from soaking in water, such as baths or swimming pools, for a period of time to ensure proper healing. Typically, you will need to avoid these activities for approximately 4 to 6 weeks. This is because submerging the surgical area in water can increase the risk of infection and interfere with the healing process. During this time, it is recommended to take showers instead of baths and avoid swimming pools or hot tubs. It’s crucial to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions diligently to minimize any potential complications and optimize your results.
