post op. bras

Surgeons agree that wearing a post-operative bra, after any type of breast surgery is necessary; not only to aid fast and safe recovery, but make you feel protected against the world.

After cosmetic or reconstructive procedures a good supportive front fastening bra is an essential.

Whatever the breast surgery, breast enhancement, breast reduction, breast lift or breast explant (implant removal), and good fitting supportive post op bra is a necessity.

A front fastening bra with a zip makes the first few weeks after your breast operation easier, allowing you to put your post op bra on much easier.

Adjustable shoulder straps allow you to adjust the straps on your after operation bra to make it more comfortable as you heal after your breast operation.

The ZBra® is conveniently equipped with a t-back and a front closure zipper and adjustable straps for fitting ease and a felt lining for added comfort. Manufactured with CoolMax® for optimum comfort and breathability, this post-operative compression bra is ideal for any breast surgery to include reductions and augmentations

Post-surgical bras are specially designed to stabilize and protect the breasts as the body heals and adjusts to the new weight and feel.  You can feel comfortably protected and secure, due to the seamless design, while ensuring the breasts are given the necessary compression and support needed for a fast recovery.  Compression treatment following breast surgery improves blood circulation, minimizes swelling, and stabilizes implants, ultimately enhancing the results of the procedure and ensuring comfort as you resume daily activities.

It’s important to have adequate support following your breast augmentation, both emotional support and breast support. The type of support you provide your breasts during your recovery can affect the quality of your results, choosing the right bra for your new breasts can help enhance your results. 

Post surgery bras are an important step in the healing process. The chest area is stabilized and kept free from infection. Scarring and swelling are reduced with compression, while delicate drain tubes must be accommodated. This makes design, sizing, and fabric choices challenging, especially when the predominantly male plastic surgeon population has little knowledge of intimate apparel.

Advise on Having Breast Enhancement

Generally, patients will only have to take five to seven days off work for a breast augmentation and about the same for a reduction. You won't be feeling 100 percent after that week, but you'll be in good-enough shape to head back to the office if your job doesn't require manual labour. However, if the implant is placed behind the muscle instead of on top (many women choose to do this for a more realistic look and less chance of a scar shell forming around the implant), recovery will be a little harder and you might be sore longer.

Breasts with implants feel different to the touch than real breasts. Although silicone breasts feel similar to real breasts, they are still manmade and don't feel like natural breast tissue. You'll be more likely to notice there's an implant in a woman who began with little breast tissue than a woman who had more breast tissue to begin with. Smaller implants and those that are placed below the muscle are harder to detect.

 You can try on different boob sizes before deciding on one. Using "sizers," a bead-filled neoprene sack, you can stuff your bra to give you an idea of the size you might like.

 You can't go from small to huge all at once. If you're starting with a small A cup, don't expect to go up to a DD cup in one procedure. It's important to set realistic goals. Your body and skin need time to adjust to drastic changes, so a surgeon will likely suggest going up only a couple cup sizes at first, then increasing the implant size over the course of a few years.

You might lose feeling in your nipples after a breast augmentation or reduction.Loss of sensation in the nipples can occur whenever there is surgery to the breasts. This depends on a number of factors, including breast shape and surgery type. Even if you lose sensation in your nipples, they will still respond to cold and stimulation (aka they will still be able to get hard even if you can't feel it).

Not all "plastic surgeons" are board certified and trustworthy. Thoroughly research surgeons that meet certain criteria before settling on one. First, make sure the surgeon is certified.

You can move fat from elsewhere on your body to your boobs. It's a new process called autologous fat transfer. Few people are candidates for this procedure.

You can get an areola reduction. This is also called a mastopexy. Oftentimes women who get a reduction will also have an areola reduction so the areola is proportional to the new size of the breast. The area around the nipple is very forgiving when scarring.

You can't walk in to a consultation and say you want X implant type through X incision location. You and your surgeon will together decide which incision choice is best for you: underarm incision, incision in the crease of the breast (inframammary fold), or through removal of the areola. Your doctor will take into consideration your beginning breast size and shape, breast tissue, and a number of other factors before recommending which options are best for you and your body.

Exercise, especially cardio that involves bouncing, is restricted after surgery. Although you can start doing light cardio again after a week, most women will need to limit their exercise for up to 12 weeks.

Implants are more comfortable if the procedure is done postpartum rather than before the patient has kids. But any implant placed under the muscle will increase the discomfort levels.

 Augmented breasts will affect your posture just like the weight of natural breasts would. The weight difference between equal volumes of saline, silicone, and breast tissue is slim to none, so a natural C cup and an augmented C cup are very similar in weight. If you choose an implant size proportional to your frame, you will see little effect on your posture. However, if you choose large implants, you will feel the effects.

Why choose a Post Surgery Z Bra

Breast surgery is a medical procedure with a recovery period that takes weeks. During this time, depending on the type of surgery, the breasts will be sore, swollen, and extremely sensitive. Wearing a normal underwired bra is next to impossible due to the amount of pain and lack of proper support. Therefore, buying a post-surgery bra is a must for anyone undergoing a breast reduction, augmentation, or mastectomy. These recovery bras look like sports bras, and feature extra support as well as front fastening . They need to be worn all day and night during the recovery process to ensure that the breasts are fully supported. Therefore, when buying a post-surgery bra, selecting the proper combination of comfort, fit, and style are all crucial decisions.

The Science Behind Recovery Bras

The average recovery time for breast surgery takes at least six weeks before the breast are completely healed. Highly intensive procedures may take longer. Always consult with the doctor about the expected recovery time to get an adequate timeframe. During the recovery process, the breasts need to be properly supported at all times to ensure that the incision scars, tissue, and skin all heal properly. For this reason, doctors recommend that patients purchase at least one post-surgery bra to wear after their operation. The bra should usually be worn at all times, both day and night, to provide adequate support during recovery time, depending on what your doctor recommends. Though they resemble sports bras, there are several crucial differences in the design of post-surgery z bras.

Designed by medical experts to provide the best support for your boobs after any form of breast operation. It is also the best ever sports bra, and good enough looking to be seen, so you can use it afterwards as a sports bra.

Next Day Dispatch Find Out More About Post Op Bras

I searched everywhere for a post op bra for after my Breast Enlargement, two days before the operation I found BrasForYou. Com, so in complete panic I rung and spoke to Louise, she assured me I would get the bras in time, and by sending them directly to my clinic, they arrived the morning of the op, have to say my doctors were very impressed not only with the quality of the bras but with the service.

I did not know what size after op bra I needed, so the lady at BrasForYou sent out two sizes; so the surgeon could see which was the best. I simply phoned her the day after the operation and she immediately sent me another on the right size, and I sent the wrong one day back a few days later when I could get out.

Thank you. I needed to change the size of Z Bra I bought. I was unsure about what size but now the reconstruction is over the 36C I got from you a couple of weeks ago is perfect. I will return the 34E tomorrow. I would prefer a black z bra (36C) if in stock but white will be fine. The bra feels very comfortable even though I am swollen and bruised it makes a huge difference to how I feel. Thank you for your excellent service.
