Thank you for your question. It is very important that if choose to take a bath you try your best to keep your sutures dry. You can do this by trying to avoid direct contact with water in the area of your sutures, or if the wound gets wet, dry it immediately. If you take these precautions, you can expect that your incision to heal without complication.
