For women undergoing breast surgery in the summer, choosing the most comfortable recovery garment can greatly improve the recovery experience.
As reported in a recent story in Digital Journal, women are now able to choose from a wide range of surgical support garments following their breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction. This can be particularly important in the hot summer months, as noted by Dawn Cover, the president of Nouvelle, Inc., a major producer of surgical support garments: “We find that especially during the summer months, comfort is a huge indicator of how fast patients heal following surgery.”
One of the main differences between surgical recovery garments and normal, everyday-use bras is that surgical recovery garments are built for comfort when worn 24 hours a day for several weeks after a surgery. This is certainly a priority for the design of the garment, according to Cover, who says that, “Our design team has carefully crafted each bra to be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure surgical sites, stitches, drains, etc. are comfortably protected and secure.”
Each surgical recovery garment should be chosen to specifically address your unique needs and recovery, and will be recommended during your pre-surgical consultation.
