Breast Augmentation: Can I Take a Bath During My Recovery?

breast augmentation stock 2 During your recovery from your breast augmentation, there will be certain restrictions that you must adhere to. These restrictions are to ensure that your recovery goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.

For the first three to four weeks after your breast augmentation, you will not be able to submerge your breasts underwater. This means that you should avoid baths, pools, and hot tubs until your incisions are fully healed. You will also need to wait for around 36 hours before you can shower.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Greg Gaines will provide you with a thorough list of post-operative instructions that will help make your recovery as easy as possible. If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, contact Gaines Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation for your breast augmentation.
