Post Op Q&A

Will I have dressings or bandages after surgery?

Dr Alizadeh usually applies a clear dressing to cover the incision lines after surgery. These dressings will be removed 2-3 weeks after surgery.

Will I have stitches that need to be removed?

Dr Alizadeh uses dissolvable sutures that dissolves over time, so there is no sutures to be removed.

When will I be able to take a shower?

We usually recommend sponge baths instead of a shower until first your post-op visit.

When will I have my post-op visits?

Dr Alizadeh usually sees post-op surgeries in the office 1-5 days after surgery depending on what procedure was done. Virtual F/U is done as needed in between office visits

When will my drain be removed?

If you have a drain it is usually removed anywhere from 2-7 days after surgery depending on the procedure that was done.

Will I have a garment after surgery?

Dr Alizadeh will assess your individual need for a garment after surgery. We will supply the garments if needed and guide you every step of the way.
