When can I start wearing an underwire bra after breast reduction surgery?

You will typically be advised to wear a post-op bra for 2-5 weeks after your surgery. For the first week, it is recommended you wear it day and night to prevent excess swelling.

Generally speaking, you should be able to wear an underwire bra from around 6-8 weeks after your breast reduction procedure.

Keep in mind, the exact time it takes to heal enough for you to switch back to underwire bra can vary from patient to patient. Therefore, this is a question you should ask your surgeon in order to get specific advice.
