How does an underwire bra impact healing and/or numbness post BA?
Doctor Answers 3
Post Op Bra
Thank you for your question. Many Plastic Surgeons advise against wearing underwire bras after BA for 6-8 weeks for a few different reasons. Where you have sensation loss, you may not feel if the wire is pressing on your incision and causing injury. Depending on the fit, It may distort/displace the pocket as well. Push up bras can press the implants upwards at the same time we are expecting them to drop so that is counter-productive as well. I recommend that you discuss these concerns with your Plastic Surgeon if you aren't sure how to proceed.
All the best
