Follow your plastic surgeon’s recommendation.
Your plastic surgeon is the expert who knows your anatomy best, performed your procedure and likely has years of experience with breast augmentation post-op care. The use of a surgical bra isn’t something plastic surgeons agree on. Some surgeons recommend them; some don’t. Based on their expertise, your plastic surgeon has recommended that you wear the surgical bra 24/7 because they feel this ensures the best results. You may want to talk with your plastic surgeon about their rationale and see if taking a break while you’re traveling is OK.
