Fact: A sport bra is designed for doing sports and that is where the name comes from. A sport bra provides breasts with necessary support while doing sports. However, breasts need a special compression after augmentation.
The correct implants’ position and fixation is crucial and it must be retained during the recovery phase. Such positioning and fixation cannot be done using a standard sport bra.
Fact: Breast support is very important after any kind of surgery whether it is augmentation, lift or reduction. All of those surgeries were perfomtherefore it takes some time until your breasts and the final result are fully recovered and achieved.
Your breasts need a special care and support during this period and so wearing a special bra is necessary. Such bra is specially designed so that it provides special support and compression.
For example after augmentation, the implants are being surrounded by the tissue and if the implants and breasts are not supported and compressed by post-surgical bra there is the risk that implants change their position and the tissue which is loosened will drop. These undesirable aspects can negatively result in extensive asymmetry.
Fact: Post-surgical reaction and recovery period is individual for every client. Method of augmentation is also a decisive factor.
If the implants are located under the mammary gland, the supportive capsule around the implant is formed faster and it allows the client to get back to her pre-surgery lifestyle sooner and also makes the recovery period and healing more comfortable than the method when the implants are located under the muscle.
However, both cases require wearing post-surgery compressive bra which provides the breasts and implants required support and compression thus keep the implants in the right and fixed position.
Most surgeons recommend wearing post-surgery bra for the period of 6 to 8 weeks after the surgery. At the same time, individual features and health condition of each client can influence the period too.
