Will going braless change the actual shape and size of the implant? Or just help them drop?

I just saw my surgeon today 3 weeks post op and he said I'm still high so he prefers I go braless (even not to wear my post op no padded no wire bra) as much as I can and when I sleep too, this is fine with me anything to speed up the dropping process but I just want to make sure braless will NOT change anything about my implants itself! Please leave answers thank you! 425l 475r silicone under

Going braless after surgery

Your implants will drop faster but there's a risk of displacement. That's why I tell my patients to wear a bra, and just wear a bandeau to help dropping. But, listen to your surgeon because they know the details of your surgery.

It sounds like your surgeon has a good point and he or she certainly has your best intentions in mind. Follow their advice!

Post op bra

There is no on size fits all answer to undergarments after a breast augmentation. Some people need the support of a bra to help the lower portion of the breast, some people need a strap across the top to help "push" down the implants. I would recommend folowign your surgeons advise. You will not have any issue with the implants from mot wearing a bra.
