How to Wear a Surgical Bra

Registered Nurse, Adrienne Yanich, explains the proper way to put on a surgical bra, when to wear it, and why wearing a surgical bra after a breast augmentation or other breast surgery is essential to seeing fantastic results.

How to correctly wear your surgical bra after your breast surgery

  • Surgical bras should have no seam and fasten in the front with a zipper or clasps.
  • Your surgical bra should be snug but not too tight. You should be able to insert two fingers underneath.
  • In this instructional video, plastic surgery RN, Paige, demonstrates how to assist a breast surgery patient with putting on a surgical bra in a safe way.
  • Consistent compression is essential. You should wear your compression bra for 6 weeks after surgery. To see the best results, you should only remove your surgical bra to be washed.
