If you would like to remove your breast implants for medical, aesthetic, or personal reasons, explant surgery can help you achieve your goals.

At the plastic surgery practice of Dr. David Bogue, we are committed to helping patients obtain the aesthetic results they desire and the self-confidence they deserve. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Bogue has demonstrated his extensive knowledge, skill, and dedication in the field of plastic surgery.

What Should I Wear for Breast Explant?

Following breast explant surgery, it is important to stay comfortable. Comfort is vital in the healing process, so it’s a good idea to plan out your recovery clothes in advance, including:

  • Compression bra: Since you’ll have incisions where your implants were removed, it will be essential to keep your breasts secured while they heal. Similar to a sports bra, a compression bra holds your breasts tightly to your body and limits the amount of movement you experience. Find compression bras that clasp in the front; these are easy to take on and off without having to move your arms too much to do it.
  • Loose clothes: Wear loose-fitting clothing that doesn’t hug your chest or belly. A large shirt, pajamas, or work-out clothes may be ideal. You’ll be laid up for a period of time after your surgery, so wearing comfortable bottoms is also a good idea. Some patients report having sore arms as well after explant surgery, so ensure that whatever top you choose does not restrict your arms.

Prior to your breast implant removal, Dr. Bogue will carefully explain what to expect from your procedure and recovery. He will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure your recuperation is as quick and comfortable as possible.
