I typically do not recommend any external support to either the donor site or breast after latissimus reconstruction. I do not want any external compression to compromise the breast flap or the donor site incision. I do recommend internal support by suturing the latissimus to the chest wall to prevent migration, quilting sutures along with drain tubes to the donor site to prevent seroma
I wish you a safe and healthy recovery
