Post op bras? Yes or no?
Bra Support Post Op
Thank you for your question. You will certainly read about different approaches to post op supports/restrictions. Plastics Surgeons tend to have their own preferred protocols. I provide my patients with a soft, supportive, wire-free surgical bra to wear for 8 weeks after surgery. After 2 months they can wear whatever bras they like.
I recommend that you ask your Plastic Surgeon what they feel is best for you and follow their instructions.
All the best
Bra after breasts augmentation
Congratulation on your decision to have breasts augmentation. That will be one of the best investments in yourself. It will improve your self esteem, confidence and will make shopping much more fun.
In regard to your bra question, if you like your surgeon's breasts augmentation results, follow his or her's advise.
I agree with your surgeon. It makes a lot of sense. My patients do not wear a bra for one month after surgery, in order to allow gravity to help the implants to settle into place.
At bed time , however, my patients do wear the bra, to support the implants and prevent them from sliding laterally, under the arm pit.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck,

To wear, or not to wear, a bra after surgery.
There are many different opinions about bras after surgery. Since your bra provides comfort, support, and modesty, the use of a post-op bra is recommended to our patients.
After surgery (early on), a sports bra can provide for your needs. Thereafter, we now strongly suggest the placement of a properly fitting bra to stabilize your breasts' position on the chest wall. Part of our usual post-operative care includes careful guidance and checking of your bra's fit.
Post op breast augmentation bras? Yes or no?
However many if not most patients feel more comfortable with the support of a bra and I encouraged them to wear their bra.
In the end I do not think it makes a difference and it is best to follow your surgeon's advice.
Always follow your surgeon's instructions

It really depends on what surgery your surgeon did and she/he may have very good reasons for why she/he wants your in or out of a bra. If you are not sure what to do schedule an appointment or call the surgeons office. Best, MMT
