Après être allé

Instead of “Après s'être levé, William alla prendre sa douche” would it be correct to use the passé composé instead of the passé simple? 

“Après s'être levé, William est allé prendre sa douche”.

Merci

Sure, that would be fine. The passé simple is the more literary version of the passé composé (simply put).
