What to Wear on Surgery Day: Post-Surgical Clothing for Tummy Tucks and Breast Lifts

Female Body In White Panties And Breast BandagesSurgery day is always an exciting but somewhat nerve-wracking experience. After all, you’re about to undergo a major change in your body!

Wearing the right clothing for surgery can maximize your comfort and recovery time. But what should you wear? Here’s a guide to help make sure you look and feel your best on surgery day.

What to Wear for Tummy Tuck Surgery 

When it comes to post-surgical clothing for tummy tucks, comfort is key. Choose items that won’t pinch, bind or irritate sensitive areas of your body.

Choose loose-fitting tops with soft fabrics like cotton or rayon and comfortable elastic waistbands that won’t dig into your abdomen area.

Your surgeon will likely provide a special garment called a binder that supports the abdominal area and helps reduce swelling. So make sure to wear something that makes it easy to get the binder on and off.

What to Wear for Breast Lift Surgery 

For breast lift surgery, choose loose-fitting clothes that won’t irritate any newly sensitive areas of your body or leave marks from tight straps or seams.

A supportive sports bra can provide extra support during recovery but ensure it isn’t too tight or restrictive. During recovery, you should also avoid wearing any underwire bra or anything with sharp edges since these can cause irritation and impede proper healing.

Bringing It All Together

No matter what type of plastic surgery procedure you have done, it’s essential to consider what you will be wearing on the day of surgery and during recovery time afterward so that you can ensure optimal comfort and healing post-surgery. By following these guidelines, you’ll be able to find the perfect outfit for both surgery day and your future post-surgery life!
