When can I shower and wash my hair after neck lift surgery?

You should be able to take a shower 48 hours after your neck lift operation. However, this is a general figure and you should listen to the exact advice given to you by your surgeon. They will also give you instructions on how to wash and care for the wound itself so that it heals well.

For example, your surgeon may give you an antibiotic ointment to apply after you shower. Make sure you pat dry the incisions after getting them wet. If you need to use a hairdryer to dry your hair, keep it on the cool setting. Finally, take care when brushing your hair around the treated area.
