Normally, you will feel like flaunting your breast after a successful breast reduction procedure. Who would not want to have a peek of the firmest and round breast on a perfect body? Maybe not so fast. There are various factors to consider when choosing the perfect bra after a breast lift.
Follow through to understand how to wear bras after a breast reduction surgery.
Immediately you come from the procedure, you will be wearing the surgical bras. You have to keep these bras on for the first week. The recovery period then lasts for around two weeks. In this period you have to follow the doctor’s instructions on wearing surgical bras, support bandages, and other supportive bras.
You are likely to experience some sores and swelling on the breast in this period. As such, you should not be in a hurry to look for a long-term bra. The breast is also susceptible to size changes at this point.
Once the recovery phase is complete, the next is the transition where you let go of the surgical bras and use the transition ones. The surgeon would recommend you wear non-wired supportive bras during the day and night. You will keep this bra-wearing routine until the fourth week. A breast reduction surgery transition period is always after four weeks.
Feel free to wear any bra until the sixth week, as long as it is not wired. At this point, the breast might still be numb and an underwire would turn them sore.
Long term bras

At this time you are sure of the bra you need to support your breasts while making you feel beautiful. However, don’t be in a hurry to heal. Some breasts can take up to six months to heal completely.
Even though healed most liposuction Sydney surgeons suggest you don’t wear wired bras to avoid irritations. Instead, wear the normal bras that support the breast while giving them the necessary lift. Given the wide range of normal bras, choose one that matches your breast size at that time.
You can also opt for sports bras for their movement and motion restrictions. They offer full support for the breasts and reduce pain and discomfort when exercising.
