Bra Shopping After Breast Augmentation:

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Ask Our Expert:

Question:  When can I go bra shopping?

Roxanne: This is a great question and actually one of first things Dr. Castillo’s breast augmentation patients want to do after breast surgery! Honestly, I’ve even had patients who want to the mall straight from the recovery room! (Just to be clear, this… is definitely NOT recommended!)

As I am often referred to as a “Professional Shopper”  I can absolutely relate to how anxious you are to rush out and load up on the cutest / sexiest/prettiest bras you can find. Who could blame you for wanting to showcase your beautiful new breasts? BUT… here is the thing… you really need to wait for 6-8 weeks to break the bra bank.CPS Blog Photo 4578

Your final breast augmentation https://www.cosmeticplasticsurgery.com/cosmetic-surgery/breast-enlargement.cfm results will take time because there are a few things that need to happen first. Your breasts are going to go through a few stages and changes before they settle on their final shape / position. These changes will effect how your bras fit and ultimately, how you feel in them.

While most of your swelling will be gone within the first 10-14 days after your breast surgery, you will have a bit of residual swelling that will need to resolve over time. At first, your breast implants may also sit a little higher than you expected. This is because the chest muscles need to make room for the implant. Once there is more room in the pocket, your implants will assume their intended position, and then… look out Vicki SecretsCPS Blog Photo 5075, there’s a girl on a mission!

So what’s a girl to do in the mean time?

You will wake up from surgery already wearing a comfortable sports bra, compliments of Dr. Castillo https://www.cosmeticplasticsurgery.com/cosmetic-plastic-surgery/ and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center. With in 3-7 days, you will be able to go braless, wear a wireless bra or preferably a sports bra. My best advice is to harness our inner-restraints and buy just one or two sports or wireless bras to get you by until Dr. Castillo lets you know the time to go shopping has finally come!  Then grab a girlfriend and make a day of it. You deserve it after exercising all that re-straint!

Happy shopping!
