Yes, it is recommended to wear bras post-surgery

Many women who undergo breast augmentation wonder whether or not it is recommended to wear bras. Well, according to specialists such as Omar Tillo, the answer is definitely “yes”. The new implants weight much more now, after the surgery, and they need extra support. The breast tissue becomes much stronger, so wearing a bra is considered a must, especially during the first six weeks following the surgery.

Choose the right bra size

Don’t rush into wearing your old bras after you underwent breast augmentation, not only because they won’t fit your size anymore, but also because you risk putting your health at risk. Also, don’t try to guess what your new bra size is, because you may fail. It is strongly recommended you change all your bras with other ones with bigger size, but it is also advisable that you get your breast sized before walking into a clothing store and buying some new bras. Try them on too to get even a clearer idea.

Swelling is normal

In many cases, women who have had their breast augmented experience swelling and this can affect the size of the breasts. For this reason, Luciano Perrone and many other cosmetic surgeons recommend women to choose bras that are at least one cup size larger than the expected size. This way it will be easier for them to cope with postoperative swelling. Over time, as the swelling starts to subside, you may adjust to smaller cup sizes.

Underwire and push-up bras are to be avoided

For the first one or two months following the surgery, women should not wear underwire bras, but should opt for surgical or sports ones. It is worth mentioning that underwire bras tend to be tighter compared to the other two types mentioned earlier, which is why it must be avoided for a while. The same goes for push-up bras. Your breast needs to feel secure and relaxed, especially during the recovery period. Push-up bras tend to displace the breast tissue, thus leading to having the implants removed, placing stress on the incisions and putting your health at risk. You can wear sexier bras after the healing process is over.
