When can I shower and wash my hair after facelift surgery?

Your surgeon will give you specific advice on how to wash and bathe after the surgery.  In general, you may shower and wash your hair 48 hours after facelift surgery. Use a mild shampoo and be particularly careful around the surgical area. You can also blow dry your hair on a cool setting. Be gentle when brushing or combing your hair so that you do not catch your comb in the suture lines. You must follow your surgeon’s specific advice.
