Push up bra with implants?

Push up bra
After breast augmentation surgery the use of a surgery bra is mainy for comfort. I routinely us a post surgical bra for support/comfort and to hold the initial post operative dressing in place. The use of a "push up" bra in the early postoperative period should not help but definitely may harm the eventual outcome. Your body starts making scar around 4-5 days after surgery. With the use of a "push up" bra early after surgery, the pocket/capsule may form too high resulting in an undesirable outcome. I recommend no use of underwire bras or bras with significant support for 1-3 months after surgery depending on the patient.
