How Soon Can I Wear A Regular Bra After Breast Augmentation
March 22, 2017
You will experience many benefits after undergoing breast augmentation, including a more attractive appearance when you wear bathing suits and sexy lingerie. In fact, shopping for new bras and lingerie is often one of the most exciting things to do after your breast augmentation procedure. However, it is important to be patient with this process. You will need to heal before you can resume wearing regular bras, so while you may want to go shopping right away, you should probably wait until you are fully recovered to start picking out new lingerie.
During the first few weeks of the recovery period, Dr. Tamir and Dr. Ali will instruct you to wear either a sports bra or a compression bra. These specialized bras will facilitate the healing process in several ways:
- They ensure your breast implants stay in the correct position
- They help expedite the healing process of your incisions
If you were to wear a regular bra during the early stages of your recovery process, it can potentially have a negative impact on your results since your implants are much more likely to settle in the wrong position. Similarly, underwire bras should be avoided right after surgery since they can cause irritation near the incision site, especially when the inframammary technique is used for your breast augmentation procedure.
In most instances, you should avoid wearing a regular bra for about 4-6 weeks following your procedure. Dr. Tamir and Dr. Ali will give you a more specific time frame as they monitor your recovery.
It is common to go through several different bra sizes while your breasts heal and all swelling subsides. Often, it can take several months for this to occur. As a result, the bras you initially purchase after surgery will most likely not fit properly once you achieve your final results. We recommend purchasing only a few bras as needed until you are fully healed.
Once you have achieved your final results, you will be able to shop for a whole new wardrobe of bras and lingerie that accentuates your new appearance. While it will take a few months before you can start wearing this sexy new lingerie, you will find that it was worth the wait.
