Mastectomy Bras After Surgery

You may need to buy different types of mastectomy bras after your breast surgery.

Initially you may need to wear a post-surgical bra continuously whilst you begin to heal and then as you recover, once you have checked with your doctor you may be able to consider wearing mastectomy bras with underwire.

Skin Health Hub Body Health Mastectomy Bras After SurgeryThere are several design features to consider before choosing a mastectomy bra after breast surgery. Although comfort is the most important feature, here is our guide to what else to look for in a post-surgery garment.

Features to look for in a mastectomy bra

• Wide adjustable shoulder straps and wide band. To provide comfort and support by not cutting into delicate skin and muscle.
• Front closure bras will be easier to fasten. Breast surgery can affect you shoulder rotation and ability to fasten a hook and eye behind your back.
• Soft bra cups will stretch to fit over surgical dressings, and provide light compression on incisions.
• Soft inner linings and special pockets to accommodate your prosthesis. Buy a lightweight prosthesis so you won’t have extra weight on your incisions.
• Few seams as possible, to avoid irritation to your incisions.
• Breathable fabrics or natural fibers. Particularly if you need to wear a post-surgical bra continuously during the healing process, you may want to buy two bras.
• A compression bra will provide greater coverage of your breasts, back, and underarm tissues. The compression on incisions can also help prevent swelling from fluid buildup as you heal.

Whether you choose to have breast reconstruction or use prostheses, wearing the correct mastectomy bra will provide you with comfort and confidence after your surgery.
