Conflicting answers, but not clear about their function .What is the actual function of the bra?- to act as a sling to hold up-off the sutures so then can heal and scar tissue can form? My doctor mentioned underwire, however that sits on my ribs and offer no upper support. I am using a snug sports bra thicker band by my ribs and to lift up breast? The bra they gave me pushes me together and never touched my ribs. I have 27.5 rib cage and 34.5 around largest part of my breast. I can choose the right type if i understand the job of the bra. pleaseHELP

Thanks for your question.
The bra is used to reduce swelling and brusing as well as for support. The underwire one is to aid in the inframammary crease support to inhibit bottoming out as the capsule (scar tissue) heals. If the bra is bothering you, try using foam or gauze to pad the bottom.Always follow your Plastic Surgeon's instructions.Best of luck.
