Post Op Bra
Thank you for your question. If it feels like your bra is too loose, you may need to contact your Plastic Surgeon and ask about better fitted options.

Post operative bra
Thank you for your question. I believe you stated that you had surgery 11 days ago. A post operative bra typically is soft and supportive. I recommend to my patients that it should give you adequate support lifting up the implants while you are healing. But it should not be too tight to wear you are uncomfortable or affecting the skin. I also recommend no bras with an underwire for 6 weeks if using an incision beneath the breast. As you recover, swelling will decrease and your breasts may appear smaller and you may need a smaller bra. This is why I tell our patients to wait several months before shopping for new bras that will be worn long term. Hope this helps.
