Compression Bra: After Breast Reconstruction

Many women opt for breast reconstruction after a mastectomy.  It entails another two surgeries – one for the insertion of the tissue expander, followed by several stages of expansion of the tissue, and then finally, the final insertion of the permanent implant.

During this time, a comfortable bra that gives you the support and comfort you need is very important.  You will be tender, so soft cotton will feel gentle against your skin.  Plus you want to minimize seams which can cut into areas of scarring.  It pays to be prepared, have a look at the options available and make sure you have a compression bra that works for you.
