Post Op Bra
Thank you for your question. I recommend that you follow your Plastic Surgeon's advice over your sister's as you've paid them for their expertise. Each Plastic Surgeon has their own preferred protocol. Some use compression bands, bras, or nothing at all and they will have reasons for doing this. I recommend that you ask them to explain if you are uncertain about any post op restrictions.
All the best
Use of bra after breasts augmentation
Just want to know is surgical bra help better the cleavage?
Generally speaking, there is no “standard” when it comes to the use of specific bras or garments after breast surgery. In other words, different plastic surgeons may have different practices when it comes to postoperative dressings/bras.
In my practice, patients wake up with a surgical bra in place. This surgical bra, although not attractive, is supportive and used for about one month after surgery (some of my patients have been known to burn the bra ASAP). Then, patients transition to a soft sports bra. Wired bras are used when breast have reached their “final position” and patients have full sensation along the breast skin.
Generally, the longer I have been in practice, the more I appreciate the long term use of supportive bras after all types of breast surgery. This additional support may be especially helpful when patients are lying down and/or engaged in strenuous exercise. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.

Every surgeon has their own protocol. I provide surgical bras for all my patients to reduce confusion. If you are concerned, I would recommend you discuss your concerns with your surgeon.
Best of luck,
