macaron Two weeks seems way too short, no wire bras for a while. So, just stick with non wire until your scars are all healed.

Unregistered I asked my PS today, he said after 2 weeks i could wear any bra that was comfortable. I think i will mostly stay with the sports bra or no bra for a bit, but he assured me that I could do anything that was comfortable after 2 weeks.

Unregistered Ask your PS. I bought bras with wires and took out the wires. You do not want to hurt the incision under your breast. There are bras that lift without the metal wire.

Unregistered I have always been told, minimum of 6 weeks before underwired bra should be worn.

Unregistered I agree with everyone else that it is best to ask your plastic surgeon on their preferences. But my surgeon told me I would never need an underwire again, after surgery.

Unregistered Hi ladies,

I had a breast reduction four weeks ago, on my last post-op visit, I was told to start wearing underwire bra at six weeks post-op. Hope this helps!

kiera My surgeon told me to wait for 3 months, and after 3 months I tried to wear underwire but it was very very uncomfortable and after a few hours I could see the identation on my breasts

Unregistered You should know that everyones PS says something different. My PS told me not to wear an underwire bra for 3 months. I think you should ask your doctor, he knows you best. Good luck to you!

Unregistered I feel your pain, it's so annoying! My PS told me to wait 12 weeks, after 6 weeks I got a regular bra (with no underwire).

Kandy I know that most plastic surgeons recommends you to go without wire untill all lines are completely healed. My PS told me to wait 10 weeks, I think you should wait and ask your PS.
