Almost 6 weeks ago I had breast augementation. 400cc textured, round, mentor silicone implants (high profile) were placed under the muscle. I naturally have wide breasts. When can I safely wear a push up bra to enhance cleavage? I understand that I would not wear it all the time. Does my picture look as though they are abnormally far apart?

It depends on where your incision placement is. Your incisions will get inflamed if you wear a bra with underwire while they heal. You should wait until your incisions are fully healed before you wear a bra with underwire. However, you should ask your surgeon first.

I would recommend following up with your operating surgeon to discuss your concerns especially with respect to the distance between your breasts. In the absence of pre-operative photos it is difficult to determine whether this is your natural anatomy because some patients just have wide set breasts to begin with. All the best!

An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.

Push Up Bra After Surgery
Congratulations on having undergone the breast augmentation procedure. The question regarding the use of bras is surprisingly common on this website; there is no “standard” when it comes to the use of specific bras or garments after breast surgery. In other words, different plastic surgeons may have different practices when it comes to postoperative dressings/bras. Therefore, best to check with your plastic surgeon. For example, in my practice, patients wake up with a surgical bra in place. This surgical bra, although not attractive, is supportive and used for about one month after surgery (some of my patients have been known to burn the bra ASAP). Then, patients transition to a soft sports bra. Wired bras are used when breast implants have reached their “final position” and patients have full sensation along the breast skin. Best wishes; hopefully, you will be very pleased with the longer-term outcome of the procedure performed.
