Can my incision get wet?

You may remove your dressing to shower immediately after surgery, however, do not submerge your incision in a bathtub until the incision is completely healed (~3 weeks). Do not aggresively scrub your incision for 3 weeks. Place a new dressing after showering. Five days after surgery, if your dressing is dry, you may remove the dressing and leave the incision open to air.
