Waxing before surgery?

I was thinking of waxing before surgery. Not sure if it's ok? I don't want to deal with anything down there during recovery.

My dr told me they wouldn't shave me, she said the hair doesn't get in the way. I had my tvh on 9/14 and haven't had any problems with the hair.

Re: Waxing before surgery?

It seems as if they told me no shaving in that area within 24 hours of the surgery due to the possibility of infection. I would think that waxing would apply also. I would think that if you did earlier than that, maybe 2 or more days before, you should be fine.

Re: Waxing before surgery?

I made a snap decision to wax 3 days before ABHyst. That was probably a bit close to surgery date as redness had only just settled! Mind you I don't normally wax bikini area so it was a bit silly to do without thinking it through-I normally wax my own legs so am reasonalby skilled with wax BUT WHAT IF I'D BURNT MYSELF!!- surgery would have been cancelled. I waxed in the hope that hair re-growth wouldn't be it itchy and uncomfortable. It's now 2 weeks since my op and I feel really good -plus hair regrowth is not itchy! See a professional if you decide to wax. Good Luck!

The best thing is to ask your doctor. Surgeries have been canceled because sisters did grooming that the doctor didn't want.

Yes I would ask your doctor. Surgeries have been postponed if they feel you have a risk for infection.
