Wear your Temporary prostheses or “softies” immediately after mastectomy surgery. They are super light and comfortable to give you a very basic, one-fits-all shape, that will fit into your post-surgery bra.
It’s all about comfort and recovery at this stage. Therefore, you shouldn’t wear anything that applies pressure to your scar, or the surrounding area, for 6–8 weeks after surgery. Once healed and all swelling has reduced, you can be professionally fitted for your permanent prosthesis.
