The Anita compression bra is a superbly technical product that aids healing and recovery after Breast Surgery. Designed to be used by the surgeon on the operating table immediately after surgery and then worn during the recovery period this bra has been hailed by Breast Care nurses and patients alike as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of post-surgery bras.
The primary benefit of wearing a well-fitting and supportive bra after surgery is that it will greatly lessen post-operative pain and discomfort by reducing movement of the sensitive tissue. It also lessens stress on any incisions or wounds and helps to reduce dependent swelling within the breast.
Features & Benefits of the Anita Care Compression Bra:
As you will need to wear it constantly for several weeks it is a good idea to buy at least two and then you can simply wash and wear each in turn. Anita recommends that you hand wash delicate items of lingerie and air dry where possible to retain the shape and strength of the garments. Regular washing in a machine and heat drying in a tumble dryer damages the fibres of the bra and shortens the life span so it’s worth taking a few minutes to wash by hand.
For any questions on your surgery and what you need to do to prepare for it both pre and post operation you should speak to your surgeon who will be able to advise you further. Just be sure to be fitted for a compression bra beforehand so that you can ask the surgeon to use it from the start of your surgical journey. Your breasts will thank you for it.
