After breast augmentation surgery, you will probably be eager to get out and start shopping for gorgeous new lingerie to show off your new curves. However, during the post surgery healing process, you should take particular care of which bra style you choose to wear.
Breast implant surgery is a serious operation, and taking care of your new boobs is vital for both comfort and health. During the first month after your op, your breasts will feel swollen, so it is helpful to choose a bra which offers a good level of compression and support. The right bra can help to speed the recovery process and can prevent problems with healing.
Many plastic surgery experts recommend a compression sports bra for post-operative wear, as this style offers an excellent level of stability and will prevent your breasts from moving around excessively. Look for a bra which has sturdy shoulder straps to help distribute the weight of your breasts evenly, reducing problems such as back-ache and shoulder pain. Special surgical bra tops are also available precisely for the purpose of post-surgery wear.
What kind of bra should you avoid after breast implants? Well, for the first six weeks or so, avoid any bra which has an under-wire. Push up bra styles which create cleavage should also be set aside until later, as the upward pressure of the bra against the breast tissue can cause displacement of the implants.
When you have chosen a bra style which is appropriately supportive, free of under-wires and offering controlled compression, make sure that you buy the correct size. Measure around your rib cage to get the band size, and choose the cup size according to the implants which have been inserted. Remember that you will want to sleep in your bra, so select a garment which fits well and doesn't ride up when you move.
Although sport bra and compression bra styles may not be the most attractive and sexy, it is vital that you follow the instructions of your surgeon and wear the right bra during the entire recovery period. You will have plenty of time to experiment with exotic cleavage enhancing bras, romantic fabrics and sultry styling after your breasts are fully healed!
