What shampoo can I use after Baha surgery?


Question: Hello, I’m having my Baha surgery on Monday and was just wondering how soon after I can wash my hair, and if there is any special shampoo that you recommend? Thanks! //Kelly

Answer: Hi Kelly,

Thanks for your question. According to Dr Pete Weber, you can shower the day after the surgery, just don’t rub the area but gently press it. He recommends a hypoallergenic shampoo, such as baby shampoos.

Once the dressing is removed, you should carefully wash your hair and use an alcohol-free abutment cleaning wipe to keep the skin clean for daily maintenance.

Always consult with your health care professional on what steps you should take after the procedure.

Best of luck!
