Removal of Staples or Steri-Strips

Following a C-section, if you have staples present in your incision please call the office to have them removed within a few days after discharge.  If you have any Steri-Strips present (small pieces of tape covering the incision), remove these as they begin to peel up and become loose.  If these have not started to loosen by 7-10 days after your delivery, moisten them in the shower and remove them.
