How To Use a Breast Displacement Strap After Breast Augmentation

Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson narrates this instructional video that shows how to use a breast strap after breast augmentation surgery to encourage downward implant migration, or to support the inframammary fold.

Video Transcription:

This is a post operative breast augmentation strap, it is used to apply compression either above or below the breasts after breast augmentation. This is the outside of the strap, as evidenced by the tag, the velcro is on the inside and there are no seams on the inside.

Immediately after breast augmentation it can often be advantageous to place this strap above the breasts. Snug it under the armpits on both sides and using compression the straps are placed downward force on the breast implants to achieve downward implant migration.

Similarly, the strap may be used under the breasts if the surgeon deems it necessary to support the fold during healing. It should be flat and smooth with no wrinkles or lines.
