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.
