    Hey pollywoo, I’m 4 weeks post op and I’ve been using cocoa butter since about 2.5 weeks. Saw my surgeon to get the dressings off at 12 days PO and he said I could start rubbing/massaging bio oil or cocoa butter into the incisions a week after that, so that’s when I started. As long as the incisions are closed and no weeping or bleeding it should be ok, just make sure your hands are clean and you don’t accidentally scratch them or anything. I haven’t had any problems :) x

    @ilovecali I didn’t go with MYA, it was a surgeon from Nuffield. I guess I had to wait a week after I got my dressings off to let the air get to them a bit and make sure most of my dissolvable stitches had gone. x
