A good post-operative bra is perhaps the most important garment of all to get it ‘right’; the bra needs to offer the correct level of compression and support to accommodate newly formed breasts; whether this is through implants or post-reconstruction. The bra also needs to take into account scar tissue and newly operated-on breasts, that will not like things such as seams, scratchy hems and edging. Post-operative compression therapy is designed to help to keep muscles in place after the procedure and eliminate swelling caused by possible accumulation of fluid. The correct pressure and support is essential, so when looking for the right garment, be sure to look out for all factors: the fit, comfort, shape and pressure and sizing chart.
Patients are significantly less mobile after surgery. For this reason, LIPOELASTIC® compression bras offer different types of fastening to meet patients’ needs. All of our bras were designed upon the specific request of top specialists in their field. They are manufactured to make it easy to put on and wear; they can be worn throughout the entire recovery period without causing discomfort or interrupting any activity or daily living.
