Myth No. 3: I can wear a swimsuit in the summer or not wear a bra after two to three weeks after the surgery.
Fact: The body's reaction to the surgery and the healing time is individual. Among other factors it also depends on where, in the case of augmentation, the implant was inserted. If it is under a gland, the supportive capsule around the implant is created faster, which enables both a faster return to everyday activities and greater comfort during the healing process. In comparison, an implant placed under a muscle, has a significantly longer healing time. In either case a compression bra designed for postoperative care must be worn to provide the necessary fixation of the implant. Most physicians will recommend wearing postoperative underwear for a period of 6 to 8 weeks. However, it all depends on the individual characteristics of each body.
