Post-Mastectomy Care: How Amoena Mastectomy Bras Promote Healing

For optimal healing post-mastectomy, your doctor will likely recommend wearing a post-surgical compression bra for 24 hours a day for 7 days a week, and the Amoena post-mastectomy bra is an excellent option.

A high-quality post-mastectomy bra should be comfortable, affordable, and lightweight. Finding a comfortable bra that’s specifically designed for post-mastectomy wear is essential during recovery to help promote the proper healing process.

Design

It’s essential to choose a post-mastectomy bra designed for post-mastectomy wear to ensure a speedy recovery after a mastectomy. These bras are designed with healing and comfort in mind.

Amoena post-mastectomy bras have very soft seams or no seams at all, and the material is soft and lightweight. Most are underwire free, so they are gentle on sensitive skin.

Some have bilateral interior pockets sewn into them to hold breast forms in place securely. They also have wider straps and bands than a regular bra for added comfort and security.

Soft Fabric

A post-surgical bra made from a soft fabric like cotton keeps your skin cool, clean, and dry during the healing process. Cotton is an excellent choice because it is gentle on your healing skin and wicks away moisture.

The Amoena Theraport Post Surgery Bra provides superior comfort with a super soft, cotton material and a seamless design. It’s made to wear immediately after any breast/chest related surgery or while undergoing radiation treatments. The special design of this bra, actually allows you to make cuts in the sides to accommodate a catheter for brachytherapy or seed radiation treatments.

Compression

Compression provides comfort and support while reducing post-surgical scarring and complications. Hook and eye closures allow you to customize the fitting for just the right amount of compression necessary to reduce swelling. When the swelling goes down the bra can be easily adjusted for the perfect fit and comfort.

Comfort

As you begin to heal, you may have phantom pain in the months after your mastectomy. You may feel a weird crawly sensation as the nerves are regenerating. Your incision site may also be sensitive to the touch.

Post-mastectomy bras are specifically designed to help ease the discomfort many women experience after they have surgery. The Amoena Ester Front Fastening Soft Bra is ultra-comfortable and front fastening, so it’s easier to take on and off.

It looks just like a sports bra and has smooth molded cups. With comfort in mind, the adjustable shoulder straps are wide and padded.

Style

Style
