Undergoing a breast augmentation can be a life-changing decision. Because of this, it’s natural to want a speedy recovery and quick results. Many people are desperate to go shopping for new designer lingerie and enjoy their new youthful silhouette.
We’ve rounded up a list of things to consider before buying yourself a bra after breast augmentation.
Allow Your Body to Heal
Giving your body the time to heal and recover properly is extremely crucial after any major surgery, including breast augmentation. According to the experts, you must allow yourself adequate recovery time of around three to six weeks. This includes consistent use of support bras, surgical bras, and support bandages throughout.
Since you might feel a little discomfort and pain in the area, it is recommended to postpone wearing a new push up bra or underwire bra until the operated tissues have healed completely.
Get Professional Assistance
Many women planning to undergo a breast augmentation want to believe that they won’t need a bra at all after recovery. However, this is a misconception.
In order to maintain the results of breast augmentation for as long as possible, you must make sure to get yourself a supportive and well-fitted bra that keeps your breast tissues in place. If you are unsure of your new size, you must consult a professional to help you pick the right bra for you.
Don’t Splurge Just Yet
In many cases, even after the healing process is over, there might still be a slight shifting in the breasts for a period of about six months. As such, it is recommended to not spend a fortune on expensive designer lingerie just yet, since it might not fit the same way in a few months.
Instead, you might want to buy some nice comfortable pieces that flatter your new silhouette and are easy on your wallet.
Steer Clear of Online Shopping
Shopping for bras online can be one of the biggest mistakes you can make after a breast augmentation. While you might be tempted by the attractive discounts that are often available on online lingerie stores, it isn’t really a good idea to invest in something you haven’t actually been fitted for. Postpone online bra shopping until you’re entirely comfortable with your new bust size and shape.
Follow the Instructions of Your Plastic Surgeon
Breast augmentation can provide you with the body silhouette that you’ve been dreaming of. It’s important that you follow Dr. Glassman’s post-surgical instructions in order to preserve the quality of your results. Dr. Glassman might recommend that you wait on buying new bras and instead buy them at intervals in order to give your body adequate time to heal.
