Critical but Forgotten — Your Post-Surgical Bra
Are you getting or considering breasts implants? One commonly overlooked but critical need is your post-surgical bra. Many women don't think about what to wear during recovery or their doctor does not advise them on choosing the right post-surgical bra. The result? Desperate bra shopping at a time when you might not make the best decision.
Talk to your doctor early on in the consultation process. Ask your doctor if he prescribes a particular bra style or specifically recommends bra features for your post-surgical needs well before the day of your surgery.
Many doctors recommend a sports bra. A compression garment like a sports bra for post-surgery will help reduce swelling and speed recovery. Many of my customers opted for a sports bra with a zipper front because they had difficulty with arm movement after surgery.
Dr. David Morrow of The Morrow Institute Medical Group specifically recommends the Grace sports bra. "The Grace bra gives excellent compression and support. It's the best for all of our patients with its front closure," states Dr. Morrow. As a service to his patients, Dr. Morrow stocks this sports bra in his office for patients so they don't have to shop later.
If your doctor does not provide this type of service, it is important to shop at a source that offers a large selection.
Wearing the right post-surgical bra is critical to a smooth recovery after implants.
Make this experience a success from start to finish.
