The dressings vary from patient to patient. Some patients may be placed in a sports bra; others will wear a stabilizing elastic support strap. Your doctor will decide after surgery and in subsequent weeks, which dressing will suit your needs and how long you would need to wear them.

Best Sports Bra After Surgery
This is a a fun & great question! In my experience of doing over 500 cosmetic breast surgeries per year, we've started putting all of our patients into a Champions sports bra that has two front hooks & a zip up front (we give one to them, put it on right after surgery before they wake up). Under Armor also makes a good one. They range from $40-50. I generally do not recommend underwire for the first 3 weeks after surgery because it can irritate the IMF suture line. I also recommend to sleep in a sports bra for the first 2-3 months after surgery to sort of "train" the new breast shape. This is all anecdotal, but has worked well for me in my experience of over 5,000 cosmetic breast surgeries. Best of luck to you!
