Shopping for bra after breast augmentation
Every one reacts differently. As a rule, 4-6 weeks should be enough time. I do tell my breast augmentation patients to just buy a few bras at week 4-6 and get more after a few more weeks just in case if the breast size changed again.
And finally, don't forget to donate your old bras to the needy. Enjoy your new breasts in good health.
Bra shopping after breast augmentation
Sounds like you are progressing well after your breast augmentation. congratulations. I generally clear my patients to go shopping 4-6 weeks after their surgery. But please check with your PS for his/her recommendations.
Best of luck.
Wait for the implants to mature
At one month you can buy a few bras, preferably without underwires. The breast shape and size will change over the next 3 to 6 months. I would not replace your entire wardrobe until it has been at least 6 months.
Shopping for new bras after breast implants
Thank you for your question. As a general rule, I request that my patients wear a light weight compression sports bra for four weeks after surgery. After this time, patients can begin to transition into other bras but I caution patients from going out and buying a ton of fancy, expensive bras until they are roughly three months post-op. I recommend that patients purchase a few bras once they are 4-6 weeks out from surgery and wait to purchase a bunch more until their implants are fully settled. I hope this helps and good luck with your new breasts!
Buying bras after breast implants
Yes, you are still swollen. This swelling may persist for a few weeks. Your implants probably seem "high" to you as well. This is normal as people usually look great on the table, and when they wake up the implants rise up toward the collar bone. They will usually start to move downward at about three weeks. It may take 6 to 12 months for some implants to settle into final position. Do not run out and buy a bunch of new bras anytime soon. Let your board certified plastic surgeon know your thoughts. They will help you through the process.
How Long Should I Wait to Buy New Bras After Breast Implants?
4 to 6 weeks out after breast augmentation surgery is a good time to buy a couple of new bras. Don't try to replace all of your bras all at once as there will still be some changes over the next several weeks. Congratulations on your breast augmentation surgery.
Hi, thank you for your question. I tell my patients they can enjoy going bra shopping six weeks post breast augmentation. It's best to follow the instructions of the plastic surgeon who performed your augmentation. Enjoy your new results!
Bra Usage Following Breast Augmentation
In the vast majority of patients we utilize an athletic
support bra for about three weeks following surgery. This helps minimize
swelling and makes patients more comfortable. It also decreases the potential
for displacement of the new breast implants within the newly formed pocket. At
three weeks patients are able to switch to a standard bra without an underwire.
After six to eight weeks, wound healing and muscle spasm should no longer be an
issue. In most breast augmentation patients, it’s reasonable to resume the use
of an underwire bra at this time.
It’s important to realize that the decision to use a
sports bra following surgery depends on multiple factors. Each patient needs to
be considered individually based on the specifics of their surgical procedure.
Discuss this issue with your surgeon and he will be able to give you insight
regarding when you will be able to buy new bras.
Timing for Buying New Bras After Breast Implants
Each surgeon has different guidelines for postoperative care, and each patient heals differently. Consult with your surgeon as he or she understands the scope of the surgery and the specifics about you.
After Three to Four Months
Aftre three to four months, your breasts will have “dropped and fluffed” , meaning they will have settled and look more natural. You should go shopping then to find a better fitting bra.
