Post Surgery Bras Provide Comfort and Form While You Recover
If you have recently undergone a mastectomy, your body needs time to heal and recover from the surgery. Within time, as recommended by your doctor, you can wear a post surgery bra with a breast form(s) that can help you look completely natural without the need for breast implants.
Post Surgery Bras
Wearing post breast surgery bras can go a long way in helping you feel more confident about your appearance after surgery. After surgery bras have a pocket in the op that holds the breast form in place.
These bras can have an underwire or be wire free. Depending on your personal preference, you can wear an underwire bra with mesh-lined cups that offer shape and provide support, or you can go with a wire free style that offers the same shape and support without the use of an underwire.
You can select from American Breast Care, Jodee, Anita, Amoena, Trulife, Classique and many more surgical bras which are available in a wide range of fabrics, colors and sizes.
For additional comfort and satisfaction, the Jobst bra (or surgical vest) is made of a soft and breathable fabric that helps keep you cool and dry while helping to manage edema that may occur after surgery.
Benefits of Compression Bras
You can also choose to wear a post surgical compression bra. These bras are custom fitted to your body, designed for good hygiene after your surgery, and are attractive and comfortable while providing the necessary compression to help you recover.
Additional benefits of these bras include:
- Increasing blood circulation
- Holding the surgical dressings in place better until they are removed by your doctor
- Reducing the build-up of fluid in the areas under the skin that may have been affected by surgery.
With a number of surgical bras after mastectomy from which to choose, you can have that peace of mind knowing that you can still took and feel your best during your recovery and long after your surgery.
