Breast Augmentation: How Long Before I Can Shower?

Published on August 31, 2018

After your breast-augmentation procedure, you will need to take a few extra precautions to ensure that your body is able to properly heal. Adhering to the post-surgical instructions provided to you is the best way to ensure the quality of your results.

While the incisions for your breast augmentation heal, it is very important that you avoid submerging them in water. That means you should avoid baths, hot tubs, and pools for a period of three to four weeks. You will not be able to shower for about 36 hours. After this time, you can shower normally.
