Post Operative Care
- Use medication as directed. You may experience some soreness as the local anesthetic wears off.
- Most wounds will be closed with absorbable sutures and Dermabond (skin glue). The skin glue forms a barrier to water. Over the skin glue you may have Steri-Strips (white or tan tape). Please do not remove the Steri-strips. Leave them in place until they fall off on their own. They may stay for a few weeks.
- Unless otherwise instructed, you may shower the day of the procedure. Please avoid bathing or soaking the wound in water.
- Observe the wound for signs of infection such as redness pus or fevers. Please call your surgeon if signs of infection are noted.
