You may shower 24 hours after surgery, but it is advisable to wait 48 hours to prevent wetting the incision area. After 24 hours, you may remove the dressings except for any skin tapes or steri-strips covering the incisions.

  •  you can take a shower 48 hours after your surgery as it takes approximately two days for the incision to close completely. 
  •  you should avoid taking long baths, hot baths, and swimming pools for at least 2 weeks after your surgery. 
  •  But you can take a sponge-bathe after 24 hours but keep those incisions dry, and always be gentle while cleaning your incisions.
