After Your Operation

When do I take bandage off?


You have a small, simple bandage over the incision which will stay in place without any worry. You can shower the day after surgery and get the bandage wet. Just pat it dry.

The bandage should be removed on the 7th day after the operation. It may be hard to peel off, but do not leave it on more than 7 days. It often helps to take the bandage off after getting out of the shower when it is wet. Do not leave it on more than 7 days.  If it comes off sooner, then don’t worry, just keep it clean. No worries, we’ve never seen one of these incisions get an infection. Also, don’t worry if it gets a few drops of blood on it.
