My surgeon mentioned he wants me to wear a sports bra right after the explant surgery in a few weeks. I've been looking at post-op photos. Looks like many people are in white casing/dressing and not sports bras. What is recommended? I have 230cc silicone in my pre-op AAA breasts and would like to explant soon. Thank you in advance!
Sports Bra After Explant?

the type of bra you wear after surgery is a personal choice. as long as it is not constricting or too tight and provides support and coverage anything will do.
Bra or Dressings after Removal of Breast Implants?
Always best to follow your own plastic surgeon's advise/protocol ( will vary from one practice to another). Remember that he/she is ultimately responsible for your care.
Breast implant removal recovery
Compression is recommended after breast implant removal. I would switch to a sports bra after about a week after explantation.

Bra choice after explantation
Every doctor has his preference. I usually have my patients wear a sports bra, but some surgeons prefere surgical bras.
