Do you need a bra after breast reconstruction?
Depending on your surgery, your surgeon may or may not want you to wear a bra. After most implant-based reconstruction, you are provided with a surgical bra that covers your surgical site from the operating room. A surgical bra can help hold your drains in place while providing support and helping you be comfortable.
What bra should I wear after double mastectomy?
Soft Cup Front-Closing Bras
Front-closure bras with soft cups will stretch to fit over surgical dressings, offering light support and compression on the incisions.
How long after breast reconstruction surgery can I wear a regular bra?
Generally, you should wait at least six weeks before you switch to regular bras again. Don’t underestimate your compression bra. It’s not sexy, but it works to keep your breasts in place as you heal, helping speed the recovery process as well as ensure your results are the most natural-looking they can be.
