Ask your surgeon
The problem with wearing underwire bras shortly after surgery is that it can cause unnecessary complications. These complications include irritation caused by the wire rubbing against the skin (something that you may not notice due to possible numbness). Patients who have an infra-mammary incision should be especially careful as an underwire bra is capable of displacing the implants if it is worn too often or too soon.
However, please see your surgeon for their advice as they may have different guidelines.

This mostly depends on your surgeon. If you were my patient I do not like underwire bras for 3 months after a breast augmentation.

Two months after breast augmentation probably okay to wear in underwire bra.
As long as any garment doesn't irritate the incision is probably okay to wear it. Nevertheless this is a question that should be answered by your surgeon.
When can I wear underwire bra after augmentation/lift?
Thank you for your question. Every plastic surgeon is different on this subject, so best to contact your PS for direct recommendation. In my practice, I encourage my patients to start wearing an underwire bra very early (2 weeks) after augmentation or lift, but I examine the bra myself for fit to make sure it is safe on the incision, and the implants are in the proper position.
