Activities

  • 6 weeks onwards – all activities.

General scar care for first 3 months

  • Micropore tape to the scars - once well healed – for at least 3 months. The micropore tape is to stay on for showering and baths and simply patted dry and not to be changed until it is very loose and almost falling off by itself. Frequent removal of the micropore tape can irritate the scar.
  • Moisturise scar after first 3 months.
  • Moisturising the rest of the abdominal skin and umbilical scar with active stretching of the umbilical scar to prevent shrinkage of the scar.
