Breast Surgery and Post-Surgery Bras: Everything You Need to Know

Breast surgery is a common procedure that can enhance the appearance of the breasts, alleviate discomfort, or address medical concerns. Whether you've had breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift/mastopexy, or fat transfer to the breast, it's important to take care of your breasts during the recovery process. This is where post-surgery bras come in, providing optimal comfort and support following your breast procedure. In this article, we'll cover everything you need to know about breast surgery and post-surgery bras, including RECOVA’s post-surgery bras made by VOE.

Choosing the Right Post-Surgery Bra

Post-surgery bras are designed to provide support and comfort during the healing process. When choosing a post-surgery bra, it's important to look for certain features such as:

  • Soft, breathable fabric: This helps reduce irritation and discomfort.
  • Adjustable straps: These allow you to adjust the fit as your breasts heal and change in size.
  • Front closure: This makes it easier to put on and take off the bra without lifting your arms.
  • Compression: This can help reduce swelling and provide support during the healing process.

At RECOVA® Compression, we recommend VOE-NUHA post-surgery bras for their medical-grade compression fabrics and design. VOE bras are specifically designed to provide continuous comfort after your operation while being discreet under clothing. For example, the MIMA BRA is ideal for strong compression following breast enlargement or reduction surgery. On the other hand, the IVORY BRA is especially ideal for gentle compression following a fat transfer to the breast, or to use for gentle compression while sleeping.

Benefits of VOE Post-Surgery Bras

Wearing a post-surgery bra can aid in the healing process in many ways. Some of the benefits of wearing a VOE post-surgery bra include:

  • Reduced swelling: The compression in the bra can help reduce swelling and promote healing.
  • Support: The bra provides support to the breasts, reducing discomfort and aiding in the healing process.
  • Comfort: VOE bras are made with soft, breathable fabrics that reduce irritation and promote comfort.
  • Discreet: VOE bras are designed to be discreet under clothing, allowing you to wear them during your daily activities and long after your recovery.
