Bra or no bra after breast augmentation...
This questions is really answered best by your own plastic surgeon. Some prefer bras for a few months, others do not feel it matters at all. For your specific case, simply give a call to the surgeons office. I prefer to keep my patients in a bra for the first 6 weeks after breast augmentation.

3 weeks post aug
I see no reason why you can't go without a bra.I would not do it 24/7.this will only cause your breatss to sag more so support is important.

Is it OK to go braless 3 weeks after a BA?
Different surgeons have different pstop -op instruction following a BA. In our office we usually encourage to go braless after 2 weeks following surgery. We feel that not wearing a bra after that time may possibly decrease the incidence of capsule formation( hardening of the breasts) by allowing the implant to move around. There are many pplastic surgeons who subscribe to this post-op plan. But, again, you need to follow your own surgeon's advice.

Bra or no bra after augmentation
I think that you should ask your doctor what he prefers. In general, I prefer patients to wear a bra because it provides support and adds to the comfort.
Braless after augment
No bra after breast augmentation
Surgeons will have preferrences all over the map on this one. Our routine though is a soft bra and band day and night for two weeks to keep things quiet and secure. After two weeks though bra less is fine.

Wear a bra after breast augmentation?
This will depend on many factors such as how your surgery was performed with respect or regard to your breast fold, the quality of your skin envelop and breast tissue, how much muscle release is peformed and the philosophy of the surgeon. At The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery, our patients are sent home without a bra for 4 weeks, then they resume regular bra wearing and with activity. For avid runners or high impact activities, we recommend wearing a strong support bra (or two) to avoid too much stretching. Saline is more traumatic than silicone so we encourage heavier bras for the active patients.
