A good sports bra is usually enough and the main thing is too have a firm comfortable support with no digging in around the stitch lines. Best wishes
This is a great question to ask your surgeon.
In our practice a loosely fitting soft bra is provided after breast lift surgery.
You do not need a compression bra after a breast lift unless you had liposuction in your upper trunk or axillary region. A sport bra supports your breasts and helps taking the weight of your breasts to your shoulders. It also helps in the molding process and avoid the dragging tension on the freshly stitched wounds. I request my patients to wear it for at least 6 weeks after surgery.
Thank you for your question. The surgeon who performed your breast lift will recommend a specific bra. Next prepped generally speaking you do not want to compress the breasts after breast lift for fear of compromising blood supply to your nipple areola.
A supportive but loosefitting surgical bra is most commonly used immediately after breast lift.
After a breast lift, you do want a supportive bra without an underwire but not a compression garment. Your bra can provide too much compression for sure. The most delicate part of a breast lift is that bottom middle area where the vertical and horizontal scars meet. You don't want too much compression on this area.
Thank you for your question. Your Plastic Surgeon should supply you with the type of bra he or she wants you to wear. In my office we use a soft, front-closure sports bra. If your surgeon puts you in a compression bra, ask when you can switch to a sports bra (this is typically after the first couple of weeks).
Hello! Thank you for your question! The answer will vary amongst surgeons. I typically have women in a soft, supportive, mildly-compressive bra for a few weeks as swelling resolves. After which, I usually recommend a bra of choice, simply for support. The changes of the breast will certainly continue with age, gravity, weight gain/loss, etc. a bra will help add support to the supporting structure and ligaments of the breast. Discuss the recommendations with your surgeon. Hope that thus helps! Best wishes!
Yes you do need to wear a special bra, it could be a sports bra after 2 weeks but during the first 2 weeks i recomend supportive surgical bra that comes with a closure in the front so it is easier for you to wear and change
In our practice we have the patient wear a soft supportive bra that we provide for a week or two until the swelling diminishes, and then their bra of choice. Other doctors will have different preferences and they all tend to work. The main ting is your being adequately supported, but comfortable and not overcompressed. Check with your surgeon's office and I am sure they will advise you of their preference. BTW, the way the lift is done is of far more importance than the garment.
In my practice I provide patients with a supportive surgical bra that comes with a closure in the back. The bra is similar to a sports bra, but the closure allows patients to avoid lifting their arms and pulling a bra on over their head. We instruct patients to continue to wear the bra nearly 24/7 for two weeks at which time they can switch to a bra of their choosing. We do not require any compression garments or wraps. You should expect minor swelling that should resolve and begin to show final results around the 1-3 month(s) post surgery. Best wishes.
