QUESTION

Can Bra Strap After Breast Augmentation Cause or Reduce Swelling?

Would ut really help swelling or would make you swell more? I was told to wear it at night, but I noticed it helped the right breast and the left is still swollen not to mention sore now.

ANSWER

Bra Strap After Breast Augmentation

Thanks for your question There is some discussion regarding the effectiveness of massage or positioning garments (like the strap you are using). Most surgeons agree that they likely do not cause harm. It is unlikely that, if properly used, they are contributing to pain or swelling. Some surgeons utilize these tools with the concept that they may speed improvement in implant positioning. If you're still within a few months of your surgery some of this swelling is normal and will continue to improve over time. I hope this helps.
