Postoperative Garments in Breast Reconstruction
Most plastic surgeons have very specific recommendations regarding postoperative garments, specifically bras and girdles. Please consult with the plastic surgeon regarding any changes in the garment selection. The timing of converting to an underwire bra or discontinuing a compressive girdle may have distinct implications to wound healing.
