How Do You Shower With Labiaplasty

Here are some key points to remember when showering after labiaplasty:

  • Timing: Generally, you can shower 24-48 hours after surgery. Your surgeon will provide specific guidance.
  • Water temperature: Use lukewarm water, avoiding extremes of hot or cold.
  • Cleaning: Gently cleanse the surgical site with mild, fragrance-free soap. Allow the water to run over the area instead of scrubbing.
  • Drying: Pat the area dry with a soft, clean towel. Don’t rub.
  • Additional care: Your surgeon may recommend using sterile saline solution or other specific cleaning products. Follow their instructions carefully.
  • Signs of concern: Be aware of any signs of infection, such as redness, swelling, pain, or foul-smelling discharge. If you experience any of these, contact your surgeon immediately.
