The healing process is different for each patient. After a breast augmentation I tell patients to take it easy for about 2-3 weeks. I would consult with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to see when you can start wearing your normal clothes again. Thank you for your question and have a great day!

Most patients are comfortable wearing loose fitting shirts or sweatshirt's for the first 4-5 days after breast augmentation. However, your plastic surgeon will give you specific advice as to clothing you should wear after your breast augmentation. Many surgeons have you wear a surgical bra for the first few days but some heavy ago bra this early after the procedure. The main point is for you to be comfortable and loose fitting shirts are often the most comfortable after breast augmentation during the first week or 2.
