It is best to ask your operating surgeon what they think. Each doctor has different guidelines for post op care.
Bras after breast augmentation
Each plastic surgeon has a slightly different protocol and it would be best to check in with yours. That said, at eight weeks I allow my patients to wear any bra they find comfortable or to go without. Congratulations on a beautiful result. -Dr. Meghan Nadeau, Seattle, WA
What type of bra is best 8 weeks Post OP?
Thank you for your question. First and foremost, you should follow your plastic surgeon's post operative care instructions. I tell my patients to wear a good supportive bra for six weeks if that means an under wire bra and doesn't irritate your scars, then that's fine. Otherwise, find what is most comfortable for you. Best of luck in your recovery!
Underwire bras 8 weeks after breast augmentation
Each Plastic Surgeon has their own opinion on underwire bras, and you should always check with your own Plastic Surgeon for their opinion. In my opinion there is no problem with underwire bras after 6 weeks. By that time the position of the implant is established and the type of bra that is worn should have no effect on the breast itself.
Bra usage following breast augmentation
Thank you for this wonderful question! I typically will release my patients to wear any type of bra they are comfortable with at 4 weeks post-operative. This includes underwire if they so desire as well as refraining from wearing a bra if they wish. It is important to understand that every patient is different and every plastic surgeon varies, although it may be slightly, with preferred post-operative instructions. I recommend following up with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon as he/she will be most familiar with your post-operative progression and will have a suggested post-care plan personalized for you. I do hope you have found this information helpful and I wish you luck!
