How long must I wait before I can allow my breasts to get wet in the shower after surgery?

I had breast augmentation on Oct. 24th and the doctor is saying not to allow breasts to get wet for 4 weeks. Is this true?

By all means follow the instructions of the surgeon who performed your breast augmentation. Your surgeon understands exactly what was done during your surgery and is the best person to advise you for follow-up care.

Each surgeon should give particular instructions to their patients. In my case, I usually allow them to have a regular shower, a week after surgery.
