Wearing a Surgical Bra After Your Breast Augmentation

Published on October 19, 2018

People are glad to hear that they will not need to go through a lengthy and painful recovery period after their breast augmentation. One of our goals as The Center for Cosmetic Surgery is to make sure that your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.

During the first few days after your breast augmentation, your breasts will feel very sensitive due to the incisions, which will still be healing. Your breasts will need extra support during this time. You will need to wear a surgical bra or compression garment for around three to four days.

After this time, you can switch back to a normal bra. However, if you prefer to wear bras with an underwire, you will need to wait an extra week or so.

We will provide you with a thorough list of post-operative instructions that will help guide you through the recovery process. Our team will also be available for any post-operative visits. If you are interested in undergoing a breast augmentation, contact The Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
