Post-Surgery Compression Bras and Recovery

Experiencing a life-altering diagnosis can come with both physical and mental discomfort. That’s why your recovery is an extremely important part of the process. It’s essential to remember that recovery looks different for everyone, and the amount of thought and care put into looking after yourself should not be negotiated. 

Post-surgery care and recovery include everything from rest, to regular check-ups, to surrounding yourself with people who lift you up, and it also includes what you wear to protect and support the surgery site.  Compression bras in particular will aid your recovery and post-surgery journey by contributing to your comfort and ease. When you’re wearing something supportive and comfortable, there’s one less thing to worry about.  

What is a Compression Bra? 

A compression bra typically fastens at the front for convenience and is built to encourage stabilisation to support the tissue and your healing process post-surgery. They tend to be adjustable, and some are built with pockets for your breast forms. A post-surgery compression bra is built especially for your maximum comfort and ease. 

What Does a Compression Bra do? 

A post-surgery compression bra protects sensitive scar tissue after any kind of breast surgery including mastectomy, lumpectomy, reconstruction, breast augmentation or reduction. The gentle fabrics and flat seams of the Amoena Compression Bra reduce skin irritation and discomfort. These bras are carefully crafted and purpose-driven, made specifically for your healing and post-recovery journey.  

Don’t try to rush your recovery, there’s no fixed timeline and even the smallest of steps are positive ones. Looking after everything from your diet to exercise to your mental wellbeing is a gradual journey, one where you will learn something new every day. Give yourself time to work through each stage and most importantly take it easy and give yourself the space and time to heal at your own pace.
