AbstractA post operative protective face shield comprises essentially a transparent body of a flexible material. Along the upper and side edges of the body of the face shield is provided an adhesive strip whereby the shield can be adhesively attached to the perimeter of the face of a patient. The shield is attached to the forehead adjacent the hairline and extending downwardly following the contour along the sides of the face. The shield is primarily adapted for providing a waterproof shield to allow a patient having recently had facial cosmetic or reconstructive surgery to shower and shampoo their hair while keeping the bandages and incisions in a clean dry condition.
