WHY IS A 4-WAY STRETCHABLE CUP BETTER THAN A MOULDED CUP IN A POST-OP BRA?
We often get the question why a post-op bra made in 4-way stretch material is preferred over a post-op bra with moulded cups. The thought behind the question is that if a moulded cup is pre-formed to fit a newly operated breast, surely this must feel much better and more comfortable as well as provide better care than a cup that is tight-fitting and compressive?
THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPRESSION AND SUPPORT ZONES IN POSTSURGICAL BRAS
It’s a fact that targeted compression on wound/scar tissue and postsurgical swollen tissue will advance the postsurgical healing process, reduce the infection risk and help achieve nicer scarring.
Postsurgical bras from Tytex are designed to provide the necessary compression and support exactly where needed. This is achieved by so-called targeted compression zones knitted into the products.
SURGICAL INCISION LINES AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SEAMLESS CUPS
In any type of breast surgery, one of the surgeons’ most important responsibilities is to make sure that the result is both aesthetic and appealing. Another important aspect is securing that the recovery period becomes as safe and comfortable for the woman as possible. In both instances the type of bra used post-surgery plays a very important role.
ONCOPLASTIC SURGERY: A BETTER CHOICE IN CANCER TREATMENT
In this relatively new surgical specialty, the woman as an individual is treated, not just the cancer. With oncoplastic surgery, the cancer is removed and the cosmetic reconstruction is performed during the same procedure – which is a whole new approach to treating breast cancer.
CAREFIX POST-OP BRAS: FUNCTION IS KING, FEMININE APPEARANCE IS QUEEN
A post-op bra that supports and enhances the surgical outcome, speeds up the healing process and offers comfortable recovery is a must after breast cancer surgery. And while the function of a post-op bra is crucial, the aesthetic look of the bra must not be overlooked, as this contributes to higher compliance and enhances the women’s feeling of “normality”.
ONCOPLASTIC BREAST CONSERVING SURGERY: SURGICAL TECHNIQUES
Oncoplastic breast conserving surgery has emerged as a third and more aesthetic option between conventional/standard breast conserving surgery and mastectomy. Oncoplastic breast conserving surgery includes two fundamentally different approaches: 1) Volume replacement and 2) Volume displacement.
