Breast implants: Underwire bra at 3 weeks post-op

It's always best to check with your surgeon about his or her protocol.  I advise my patients that  after 3 weeks they can wear whatever they wish for special occasions. Hope this helps. Have fun! For more information on this and similar topics, I recommend a plastic surgery Q&A book like "The Scoop On Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths."

I appreciate your question. I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!

Bras with underwire

Thanks for your inquiry.  It is a little early for to categorically approve an underwire bra at 3 weeks post-op with an inframammary incision.  I suggest you discuss with your surgeon if your healing has progressed well enough to wear one, good luck.

Hard to answer this without knowing your operating surgeon's postop protocol. Remember that every surgeon has a slightly different protocol based upon how they performed your surgery. Best to contact your surgeon's office. Good luck!
